What Are Composite Roof Tiles and Shingles Made of?

What Are Composite Roof Tiles and Shingles Made of?

Our composite roof tile is made of compressed recycled plastics & other sustainable materials. This creates a composite tile that is much lighter in weight and more durable than alternative roofing solutions.

While most plastic shingles manufactured by competing companies do not look real, Brava’s composite tile products are nearly identical to their natural counterparts. In addition, most plastic shingles available on the market are thin and flimsy, where our composite shingles are thick and durable.

Brava Roof Tile is the only composite tile manufacturer that offers synthetic roofing products in any custom colors or color combination. Our products are colored throughout, and won’t fade due to the elements like cheap plastic roofing shingles.

Composite Roofing vs Weather

Brava composite roofing solutions are perfect for any climate or region in the world! Other plastic shingles can become brittle and break in freezing climates. Our products can withstand the hottest and coldest of climates.

Do you live in an area subject to high UV rays? Brava is the only Miami-Dade certified composite tile that is proven to withstand high temperatures and extreme UV light conditions.

Rain, snow, hail, or shine; Brava will withstand the test of time. All of our composite roofing materials have a 50-year limited warranty.

Brava's Synthetic Slate Roof Tiles

Synthetic or composite slate roof tiles look like the real thing without the weight and hassle of replacing broken tiles, and the regular maintenance of checking your gutters to make sure there is no water backing up on the slate that can freeze and break tiles in the winter. Brava synthetic slate tiles are manufactured with a Class 4 impact rating and can be designed with limitless color options. They are lightweight and made from an environmentally-friendly composite material. Compare our synthetic slate tiles to the traditional version and see the difference for yourself.

Brava's Synthetic Cedar Shake Roof Tiles

Brava cedar shake roof tile is the best overall alternative to real cedar shakes. Made from a composite material, it won’t warp, crack, split, or rot and does not attract fungus like real cedar shakes because they do not hold water. Lightweight and easy to install, these shingles give you the appearance of a cedar split shake roof without all of the problems. Unlike an untreated wood shingle, Brava’s cedar shake tile comes with a Class A or Class C fire rating and a Class 4 impact rating. With a wide variety of color options, your cedar shake tile roof will be beautiful for years to come. Compare our synthetic shake tiles to the traditional version and see the difference for yourself.
