Composite roofing systems may be common but don’t just let anybody fix or replace your asphalt shingles. There is more than meets the eye.
What’s In Composite Shingles?
Composite roofing is made from asphalt shingles, tar paper roofing, slate, shake, laminate, wood, etc. When mixed, these “ingredients” create a superior roofing shingle.
How long a composition roof lasts depends on the type of composite shingle. A basic 3-tab composite shingle has a life span of 20-25 years. Laminate architectural shingles 30-50 years. Class 4 architectural asphalt shingles 40-50 years as well as designer brand.

There is so much more than just a metal roof. We are here to ensure you that you pick the right one for your property.
Aluminum roofing is among the premium choices for metal roofing material, just like its more expensive cousins, copper and zinc. That’s partly because it offers superior corrosion resistance to regular ferrous (steel) roofing options. This characteristic makes it a frequent choice in coastal applications.
CORRUGATED METAL ROOF
Corrugated metal roof and wall systems are an energy-efficient, low cost, and long-lasting roofing and wall cladding option for homes, log cabins, and commercial building envelope applications. The system is comprised of corrugated sheet metal panels held in place by exposed fasteners.
METAL TILE ROOFS
Metal tile sheets can also be employed. These are usually painted or stone-coated steel. Stone coated steel roofing panels are made from zinc/aluminium-coated steel with an acrylic gel coating. The stones are usually a natural product with a colored ceramic coating.
Standing seam metal roofing is defined as a concealed fastener metal panel system that features vertical legs and a broad, flat area between the two legs. It’s also described as having raised seams, or vertical legs, that rise above the level of the panel’s flat area.
Wood roofs age like fine wine. They are very durable and only look better with time.
CEDAR SHAKE ROOF
What is Cedar Shake Roofing? Cedar shake roofs use wooden shingles that are made from split logs. The roofs have a distinctive look because the thickness and length of each shingle can vary.
Modern wooden shingles, both sawn and split, continue to be made, but they differ from the historic ones. Modern commercially available shakes are generally thicker than the historic hand split counterpart and are usually left “undressed” with a rough, corrugated surface. The rough-surface shake is often considered to be more “rustic” and “historic”, but in fact this is a modern fashion.
The typical life of a wood shingle roof is 30-40 years. Similarly, a good quality, properly-installed wood shake roof has a life expectancy of 20-40 years.
Concrete roofs are not your typical roof.
WHAT IS CONCRETE ROOFING?
Concrete tiles are made of mixture of sand, cement and water, which are molded under heat and high pressure. Concrete tiles have additional water locks, or interlocking ribs on the edges that prevent water infiltration.
The life expectancy for a concrete tile roof is marketed as a 50 year roof. However, the underlayment and batten system, even if good material and the proper installation procedure was used, will not last that long and will have to be replaced generally around 30 to 40 years.
CONCRETE VS WEATHER
In extremely cold climates, tile roofs can crack from freezing and thawing out. However, concrete tiles can now be made to withstand extreme temperature changes. One of the key selling features of this material is that it is extremely durable. It is fireproof, insect-proof, and weather-resistant.
