Advantages of Plastic Roofing for Your Home

By: Danny Lipford

Roofing made from plastic resembles natural slate or wood shakes while weighing less than asphalt shingles and 75% less than slate. That makes plastic roofing easier to lift and install.

Plastic roofing is resistant to hail, wind, fire, and extreme temperature changes. Since plastic roofing is flexible, you can walk on it without causing damage. This durability allows manufacturers to warranty plastic roofing for up to 50 years, with some even offering a lifetime warranty.

Plastic roofing is less expensive than slate, more energy efficient, and can be made from recycled material – making it an eco-friendly choice as well.
