The ability to find an option that provides the performance and appearance while staying within a budget is one of the benefits that a composite shingle roof can provide. The shingles are composed of a fiberglass core that is coated with a weather resistant layer of asphalt. The exterior incorporates a layer of crushed rock (ceramic granules) embedded on the surface.
These types of shingles are very popular because of all the available style and color options that homeowners can pick from. There are three different sub types of shingles (three-tab, laminate or sometimes called dimensional and architectural or sometimes called premium).
The wide array of designs which closely emulate the appearance of more expensive materials paired with long warranties that come with composite shingles are some of the few key advantages that homeowners keep in mind when looking to make a wise and cost effective compromise.
