Composition shingles are preferred over asphalt shingles because of the longer life span and durability. Composition roofs have high durability and will last up to 50 years, unlike asphalt shingles, which have a much shorter lifespan (usually between 5 and 20 years maximum). Otherwise, also composition shingles are an excellent investment because they help shield homes from harmful UV rays, decrease energy costs, and provide some level of fire resistance. Besides, composite shingles even help prevent the growth of mold, algae, and fungus.
There is a lot of variety in composite shingles in terms of colors, textures, and styles.
In the language of realtors, roofing has become a prime factor for what they call “curb appeal” and now the looks of the roof hold equivalent importance with functionality.
From a wide variety to choose from in terms of life span and simple to upscale, homeowners can select the roof that will go best with their house aesthetics.
