Composition roofing is a cost effective roofing material for residential or commercial properties. Composition roofing shingles are made of slate, laminate, fiberglass, asphalt, or other recycled products. This man-made material comes in a variety of designs and colors. At Christian Roofing, we utilize the latest composition roofing technology on single-family homes, apartment buildings, condominiums, and commercial structures.
What are the Benefits of Composition Roofing?
Composition roofing was developed in the 20th century as an affordable and durable building material. Since then, manufacturers have routinely advanced the design and functionality of composition roofing materials available in the market. We offer several composite roofing solutions to suit a range of building sizes and styles. Clients prefer composition roofing shingles for their durability, visual appeal, and versatility. Because composite roofing is an engineered product, manufacturers have found ways to include qualities like water and fire resistance. The benefits of composition roofing include:
- Fire resistant
- Long lifespan (up to 30-50 years)
- Resistant to mold and algae
- Less likely to warp or crack
- Comes in a variety of shapes and colors
- Simple installation
- Easy to replace and repair

Composition Roofing Styles
One of the benefits of utilizing composition roofing is the variety of colors, shapes and styles you can choose from. Composition roofing is available in several tones, including greys, browns, reds, greens, and black. It is also manufactured in a range of shapes (square, rectangle, diamond, etc.) and sizes to match the character and design of your home.
Dimensional Shingles: Dimensional composition roofing shingles have a layered design and offer the look of classic wood, tile, or ceramic shingles. Dimensional shingles are thicker than traditional composition roofing shingles and often have a longer life span.
Symmetrical or Non-Symmetrical Shingles: Depending on the size and character of your home, you may opt for a traditional symmetrical look, or an overlapping irregular pattern. Whether you have a farmhouse cottage, Spanish villa, Craftsman home, or a Traditional American style ranch there is a composition roofing tile option to suit the aesthetics of your property.
Dark vs. Light-Colored Shingles: Since composition roofing is available in a wide range of colors, you may select light color shingles to reflect sunlight and offset your air conditioning costs. Alternatively, dark shingles may be selected for their ability to mimic the look of rich slate tiles.
What are The Best Installation Methods for Composition Roofing?
Most roofs are made up of multiple layers that work together to provide strength, water resistance, and insulation. Depending on the size and age of your roof, composition roofing shingles will make up the top-most layer of your structure. Composition roofing shingles often come in wide strips and are secured to the underlayment with adhesives, nails, or staples. Your property’s size and climate may dictate the best installation method to support longevity.
