Composite Roofing

Definition

Synthetic roofing shingles made to look like natural roofing materials such as wood or slate. Composite shingles look just like the materials they are meant to resemble, but cost much less, and some even provide better durability and fire resistance.

Cost Considerations

Composite roofing is cheaper than natural wood or stone, but still more expensive than asphalt shingles. The longevity of the material should also be taken into account as well as the upfront cost of the materials and installation. Composite roofing costs between $400 and $1,100 per 100 sq. ft. installed, whereas asphalt cost about $350 and slate can go as high as $1,600.

Costs vary greatly by region (and even by zip code). To get free estimates from local contractors, please indicate yours.
