Top Reasons to Use Synthetic Composite Roofing

Top Reasons to Use Synthetic Composite Roofing. Composite material is often used as an alternative to wood for some common construction materials. This material is also known as WPC or plastic wood and is a very popular choice for outdoor decks and porches. In addition to decking, composite materials created from a combination of wood and plastic fibers are used to make fences, railings, siding, and other types of flooring.

Not many people realize that composites are used in roofing material products as well. Composite roofing products are usually made from recycled plastic, polymers, and other sustainable materials, and several manufacturers have started making them. There have also been synthetic roofing products introduced in recent years.


What is the Difference Between Composite Roofing and True Synthetic Roofing?

When we use the term composite, we mean a combination of things. Composite can be used to describe anything made up of wood, vinyl, fiber cement, or recycled materials. Although composites have some performance and maintenance advantages over their “natural” counterparts, they can also present several drawbacks. A modern synthetic roof, in contrast, is made from a different material. For instance, DaVinci Roofscapes creates their exterior roofing products using pure, virgin polymer resins, which deliver quite a stunning result.

What Makes Synthetic Roofing Something Worth Considering For Your Roof

Slate tile and cedar shakes have captivated people worldwide for many generations due to their timeless appeal. But despite their natural beauty, slate and cedar each have their drawbacks. You now have a better roofing solution available to you, thanks to modern synthetic materials. Synthetics like DaVinci are remarkably good at mimicking the look of natural materials while delivering better performance capabilities without nearly as many maintenances, repair, or replacement concerns.

Some of the features of quality synthetic roofing are: 

Every Bit as Beautiful

Synthetic roofing is modeled after actual slate and wood shakes and has a natural, uninterrupted look that is beautiful and long-lasting.

• Colors That Won’t Fade

The tiles we make from synthetic resins and shakes of distinction are made from pure virgin resins that are UV stabilized. What does that mean for color retention? It means that the original color you select will be yours forever.

• Much More Durable with Less Maintenance

Even natural slate isn’t immune to time-worn ravages of the weather, and wood shake is no exception. Rotting, cracking, and curling are all potential issues with a wood shake. By contrast, a high-quality synthetic roof defies the elements with low-maintenance durability that lasts a lifetime.

• Not Fazed by the Wind

It’s not uncommon for roof manufacturers to claim that their materials are wind-resistant, but they don’t provide any data to support that claim. On the other hand, a good synthetic roof should be engineered to withstand sustained winds of up to 110 miles per hour, which is the equivalent of a Cat 5 hurricane.

• Delivers Solid Fire Protection

Nothing is completely fireproof when it comes to roofing materials, but synthetic roofing is pretty close. Good synthetic roofs carry a Class A fire rating, so they are less likely to ignite and thus less likely to cause a fire. It is worth considering synthetic roofing if your main goal is to protect your home from fire threats. 

• Resistant to Impact Threats

The material is more impact-resistant than many tough materials, such as metal and concrete. Reputable synthetics carry a Class 4 impact rating, placing them above other roofing material solutions like asphalt, natural slate, natural shake, concrete, and metal.

• Amazing Product Warranty

The reliable synthetic roofing material will carry a Class 4 impact rating, apart from asphalt, natural slate, natural shake, concrete, and metal. You can get a lifetime warranty on some synthetic roofing products; some last up to 50 years!
