Brava Composite Tiles vs. Asphalt Shingles

Brava Composite Tiles vs. Asphalt Shingles

One of the most popular materials used on roofs today is asphalt shingles. Asphalt shingles have become dominant in the marketplace because they provide many of the basics that the builder and homeowner desire. However, when compared to Brava composite roofing, asphalt shingles have significant drawbacks.

Brava is far more durable

Brava roofing is great at resisting the weather, including hail, while asphalt shingles are easily damaged. Brava cedar shake, slate, and Spanish barrel tiles come certified for Class 4 impact resistance, which is the highest level that roofing materials can achieve. They can withstand wind, hail, rain, ice, and debris, providing superior protection to the home’s structure.

Brava stands up to hurricanes

Traditional asphalt shingles can get blown off the roof by strong winds, but Brava tiles are tested and approved to withstand wind speeds of up to 188MPH with ring shank nails and up to 211MPH with high wind screw installation and has Miami-Dade County acceptance for high-velocity hurricane winds.

Brava is moisture and mold-resistant

Brava cedar shake, slate, and Spanish barrel tiles are resistant to mold because they do not absorb water. On the other hand, algae can occur on any shaded asphalt roof, particularly in warm, humid conditions, detracting from your home’s overall appearance and lowering the resale value.

Brava is beauty that lasts

Many asphalt shingles need replacing after 20 years. Brava roofing does not fade and continues to look beautiful for a lifetime. We’re so sure of it that Brava products come with a 50-year warranty.
