All-Star Roof Systems offers a variety of composition shingle roofing systems. Whether it’s Owens Corning Roofing, GAF Roofing, or CertainTeed Roofing, we have the right composition for you.

Composition shingle roofing shingles should not be confused with those made of asphalt. Asphalt shingles are usually only made from paper or fiberglass, which is then covered in the asphalt coating. The asphalt variety also has a much shorter lifespan, lasting only 5 to 20 years at maximum.

Composite shingles are much more durable. They can also help shield homeowners from harmful UV rays, decrease energy bills, and prevent mold and algae. This mold growth is not only hazardous to your health, but it is also very unsightly, resulting in dark, black streaks on the exterior of the roof.

Composition Roofing is an Affordable Alternative to Metal Roofing

Composition shingle roofing is also straightforward to replace, either when resurfacing an entire roof or for the repair of specific individual areas. Their lifespan can last up to 50 years, depending on the manufacturer and the different shingle ratings. Composite roofing systems are also highly flame resistant. They protect your home from fires that begin with fallen burning debris, neighboring house fires, and even windblown ash and soot.

Composition shingle roofing makes up nearly 85% of all home roofing systems for a variety of different reasons. Not only are they more inexpensive solutions, but they also provide a variety of colors, styles, and textures to complement the individual exterior décor of your home. The three-tab shingles are usually the most cost-effective form of composite shingles. However, other designs include more elaborate styles of multiple colors or architecturally detailed shingles that can also sometimes provide even longer-lasting durability.

For a long term roofing system that is easy to maintain and fire retardant, composition roofing has what you need. It provides you with several styles, and color options, composition shingle roofing is well worth the price.

All-Star Roof Systems has extensive experience with composition shingle roofing. For most applications in the Houston area, we recommend these three products.
