SYNTHETIC ROOFING PRODUCTS

Yet another popular roofing choice (and by now, you’re realizing there are many!) is a composite or synthetic option. For instance, both wood shake and shingle options come in composite. Synthetic wood options are comprised of a non-recycled polymer that give composite roofs a durability and strength that goes beyond traditional wood options. The same goes for synthetic slate options, which are created and fashioned to look just like natural slate roofing tiles.

The Pros of Synthetic:

Slate synthetic material weighs substantially less than its natural slate counterpart. That lightness makes this option available for almost any home. Synthetic slate also greatly reduces any collection of mold and algae. For wood synthetic options, installation is easier because there is no need for coatings (fire retardant, anti-algae, etc.), saving on overall labor costs.

The Cons of Synthetic:

Synthetic technology is still relatively new, coming to prominence in the early 90’s. The jury is still out on the overall long-term effects of using a composite option, specifically if there is any color fading over time.
