One of the most popular roofing choices for homeowners in Fort Worth, Texas, and the surrounding areas is composition shingles. It is called a composition shingle because it is composed of several ingredients, which typically include asphalt, fiberglass, and various recycled materials. The end result is a roof that will be resistant to mold growth, heat, wind, and rain. Homeowners are often drawn to composition roofs because they are affordable, long-lasting, and durable. They come in many colors and are easy to repair or replace. When properly installed and maintained, composition shingle roofs can last 20 years or more.
