Synthetic roofing materials are a great option for homeowners who like the look of natural roofing products but do not want to spend a fortune. Although synthetics have been on the market for about thirty years now, the methods and technologies used to create them have improved drastically in the last 10 years or so. The result is a great looking product for far less of an investment than the cost of materials such as tile, wood or slate.
For property owners interested in exploring synthetic materials for their roofing needs, Essex county roofers can help choose the best product for the style of the home that also fits the desired budget.
There is a tremendous variety of synthetic products available for homeowners to choose from. The molds that are used to cast the tiles or shingles are formed from the original materials, so that the variations that make natural products unique exist in the manufactured roofing materials as well. Selecting a nontraditional color for the roof can make it a focal feature of the home, and there are many to choose from.
The high durability of the synthetic products is one of its most advantageous factors. They are able to stand up to extreme winds, hail, snow and other severe weather conditions.

Most quality synthetics have a Class A fire rating as well as the highest impact rating and will not be damaged by even large sized hail.
Synthetics are a particularly great choice for homeowners who are environmentally conscious. Although they are manufactured, they cost significantly less to make and to transport than their natural counterparts. Synthetics can be cut and shaped on site, reducing waste and increasing efficiency. Most synthetic roofing products incorporate some recycled materials and then can be recycled themselves into a variety of other products.
Consumers should be aware, however, that not all synthetics are equal in regards to the color, quality and look of the different synthetics available on the market. Although all grades are very durable, the quality and look of the product increases as the grade does. Colors are a bit more vibrant in mid grade or higher products and have a more natural look and feel. This does increase the initial investment as well, but synthetics are expected to last at least 50 years, and the warranties reflect that fact. Synthetics are a great choice for budget conscious consumers who desire both quality and durability.
