The first thing a roof needs to do is protect you from the elements. Also important to many is leaving as small of an environmental footprint as possible. Composite roofing covers both.
Composite, or synthetic, roofing tiles are one of the most durable products on the market today. It is manufactured from up to 80% recycled material and is 100% recyclable after removal. It offers superior protection from heavy rains, hail and high winds. Most composite roofing materials have a Class A fire rating and feature Class 4 impact-resistance.

Composite roofing tiles offer the look of genuine slate, clay tile or wood shake without the heavy weight and expense that come with these natural materials. Because innovations in manufacturing have made them virtually indistinguishable from the natural roofing materials, composites have earned approval for use in historic preservation projects.
