Composite roofing is the next step up from typical asphalt shingles, and it offers several advantages over the latter. As a certified CertainTeed SELECT ShingleMaster™ Contractor, A Cut Above Exteriors shares a list of the benefits you can expect from composite roofing.
It’s More Durable – Composite roofing may look exactly like typical asphalt shingles, but the difference lies in the base mat. Composite shingles are more durable and — like metal roofing — are a little bit more flexible, which allows better resistance against a variety of weather conditions. Whether you live in a hurricane-prone or a hot and arid area, composite roofing is perfectly suitable for your home.
It’s Impact-Resistant – The same durability also allows resistance against direct impacts, such as those caused by hail and airborne debris. Impact damage isn’t as noticeable, and many homeowners end up not knowing about their damaged roof until their next roofing repair contractor appointment – or until it starts to form major cracks or leaks. With composite roofing, you have fewer chances of experiencing such problems.
It Has an Exceptional Warranty Coverage – When installed by a CertainTeed SELECT ShingleMaster contractor like A Cut Above Exteriors, your CertainTeed composite roofing becomes eligible for coverage under SureStart™ and SureStart PLUS. The 5-star extended warranty coverage features material workmanship for up to 50 years, including materials, labor and disposal. It also includes workmanship coverage for up to 25 years.
It’s Eco-Friendly – Homeowners who factor sustainability into their home improvement choices will be glad to know that CertainTeed composite roofing is made with sustainability in mind. CertainTeed has made an effort to incorporate practices that meet the industry standards and codes during manufacturing. Composite roofing is made from recycled components such as reclaimed wood and polymer, and can also be recycled at the end of its service life. Composite can also improve your home’s energy efficiency, which helps reduce your home’s use of grid-based energy. In addition to reducing your dependency on fossil fuels, this also results in significant energy savings.
