Why should I choose synthetic or composite for my roof?

Synthetic or composite slate or tile can give your home the look of natural slate or shake but is usually less expensive than actual material.  Composite roofing comes in a variety of forms and colors to match your home’s current palette.  Composite roofing is also walkable and usually made from eco-friendly recycled products.


What else should I know about synthetic or composite for my roof?

Composite roofing is a relatively new material that hasn’t been around long enough to test for a lifespan.  However, the material itself has been proven to last for decades and homeowners should feel confident in the longevity of a synthetic roof.  Although it is usually cheaper than natural slate or shake, synthetic roofs still carries a higher cost than asphalt shingles.  Talk to your roof specialist about the fire rating of their synthetic roofing, as that is a very integral part of protecting your home.
