Composition shingles are a good choice for a clean look at an affordable price. Higher-quality versions made from asphalt or fiberglass shingles offer a more durable choice and may be available with recycled content. Composition roofing materials come in a large selection of types, brands and colors. They adapt easily to different applications because of their versatility. They are relatively easy to install, and in some applications can be nailed in place over an existing roof. They require low maintenance. Most brands offer Class A fire protection.
