Composite Roofing Costs

Composite roofing costs run from $3.00 to $9.00 per square foot installed. The biggest factor in pricing is in the materials used. Examples of the materials include slate, wood, recycled plastic, laminate materials, hemp, fiberglass, as well as other common roofing materials. A combination of the materials are combined and coated in granulated asphalt (due to the UV protection and waterproofing qualities asphalt provides).

“Composite shingles are made from a variety of materials combined together into a single shingle. They are most often made from asphalt, although composites made from other materials are becoming increasingly popular.”
