There are many different roofing materials available. Asphalt roof has been, and still is the most common material used around the country. Composition roofs, however, are growing in popularity. At Red Owl Roofing, we understand the complexities of composition roofing and know how to best work with it both on residential and commercial buildings.
What is Composition Roofing?
Composition roofing has the classic appearance of wood shingles and the durability of a more manufactured material. Composition roofs last for between 30 to 50 years, which is longer than many other materials. Part of the long-lasting nature is due to the weather resistance of the material. Composition roofing blocks sun damage and discoloration. It is also resistant to weathering and moss growth.
Though it has the traditional look of shingles, composition roofs have the variability of more modern roofing products. They are available in many different colors so you can customize your roof to match the rest of your property. You can also chose a specific tile size, if you want to have especially large or small shingles on your roof.
Another reason why composition roofing is growing in popularity is that it is environmentally friendly. Composition roofing contains mostly recycled and reclaimed materials, so it has the lowest environmental impact of almost all roofing materials.
Benefits of Replacing Your Roof
Many people struggle in determining whether to replace or simply repair their roof. Roof replacements can be expensive, so it is important to be sure that you need one.
If your roof has sustained a fair amount of damage and weakening over the years, you will most likely save yourself money in the long run by replacing it instead of continually trying to make up for the damage with small repairs. Some roofs also have problems that are not visible to the untrained eye. Red Owl Roofing can send experts to your property to examine your roof for any potential issues.
If you are remodeling your home, replacing your roof is always a good thing to consider. Because roofing is less glamorous than some other aspects of home remodel, some homeowners forget to check in on their roof. However, a roofing issue could cause severe and expensive damage to your home.
Replacing your roof also exponentially boosts your curb appeal. Whether you are planning on selling your home in two years or 20, it will be significantly easier if you have a roof that is in good condition. A roof is one of the main things that people see when they look at the exterior of your home. If your roof has dented, discolored, and worn down shingles, potential buyers will be less likely to take interest in your house. With a new roof, the exterior of your home will look clean and polished. Not only will people want to explore the interior of your house, they may be more willing to pay a higher price.
