When there’s a roofing job afoot, one of the most important – and earliest – steps is to make sure you’re choosing the right kind of roof material.
An Austin composition roof is a strong, traditional choice that’s appropriate for a wide range of applications. Both homes and many businesses can be improved by this style of roof, helping them to look better and use less energy.
What is Fiberglass Composition?
A good Austin composition roof has remarkable qualities that make it durable, energy efficient, and beautiful to look at. Composition-style shingles have a fiberglass mat at the center that serves to reinforce the structure. This, in turn, is coated with mineral fillers and asphalt.
Since the fillers adhere to the fiberglass so closely, and the asphalt tightly surrounds the structure, these shingles become highly waterproof. A layer of ceramic granules in the topmost surface helps to bolster both the shingles’ performance qualities and their distinctive look.
Your Austin Composition Roof Options
At Longhorn Roofing, we’re serious about providing each of our customers with the ideal roofing option for them. From full roof replacements to repair, and everything in between, our team brings decades of experience to every job.
When you choose us, you have two major composition roof options:
3-Tab Composite Shingles
These shingles are known for a classic cedar look preferred by many Austin homeowners. They are among the least expensive roofing materials available – and they get the job done without sacrificing quality. In fact, our 3-tab shingles come with a 25-year manufacturer warranty as well as a 60-mph wind warranty -- ideal for the Austin area. They also offer great rain and hail protection.
Dimensional shingles are even tougher than 3-tab composite shingles and offer a longer lifespan. With the right care and maintenance, they can last 30 years or more. Of course, that comes with a manufacturer’s warranty as well. With a 110-mph wind warranty, dimensional shingles are prized for their exceptional protection against hazards like water damage, warping, and hail.
