When it’s time to replace your Northern Virginia roof, you are faced with a wide variety of materials to choose from for your project. There are a number of things that factor into the decision, including the cost, longevity, appearance, and how the material will affect the environment when it is time for it to be replaced. One roofing material that offers a number of benefits is composite roofing tile.
Composite, or composition, Herndon roofing tiles are made up of a mixture asphalt and fiberglass, and often contain recycled materials. They are relatively lightweight, and do not require as much reinforcement as heavier options, such as slate or clay tile. They are also among the most durable roofing materials currently available, with high-quality products offering warranties of 30 years or longer.
Another benefit to composition materials is that they are considerably more durable and less prone to breaking and cracking than clay, slate, or even wooden shingles. This means that less material is wasted or rendered unusable, which can save the homeowner a fair amount of money. Also, these materials are easy to recycle into new shingles or other products, so there is less impact on the environment.
Finally, these materials are designed to withstand a range of weather conditions, from bone-chilling sub-zero temperatures to extremes in 110 degree heat. Composition shingles also have a high tolerance for exposure to ultraviolet light, and will resist fading for a longer time than other materials. In addition, several companies are now manufacturing these types of materials with an ingredient that makes them better able to resist the growth of mold, mildew, and algae, a very beneficial advantage for homeowners living in humid areas, or regions that receive a lot of rain annually. As an added bonus, composition roofing materials are also fire- resistant, and come in a range of colors to match any exterior.
