These shingles are heavier (triple layered) laminate and are the top of the line in composite shingles. They are thicker and physically larger than standard laminated shingles and often have extra features like moss retardants and modified asphalts incorporated in to them. These shingles can carry 50 years to a lifetime warranty.
Composite roofing shingles are easy to install, can fit most any budget, are weather resistant and long lasting, and come in a wide variety of colors. There are some drawbacks to this type of shingle, such as being petroleum based and heat absorbent, making them low in energy efficiency.
If you are planning on re-roofing and your present roofing materials are asphalt, don’t dispose of the shingles in a landfill. Asphalt shingles can be ground up and turned into pavement and patch material for potholes, sidewalks, ramps, and bridges.
