Fiberglass Shingles: The Roofing Material You Should Have

Live as safe and as protected as possible under a reliable, durable, and multi-functional roof.

With the low average temperatures, snow, wind speeds, and precipitation in Calgary, it is crucial to be prepared to protect our family and the people we love.

One way is making sure our houses and businesses are safeguarded from these conditions, and one of the primary defenses of our house or office is the roof.

Depending on the material our roof is made of, we can protect our house and office from different situations and dangers. There is a wide variety of roofing material out there, which is why it is so important to contact a professional roofing company to help us choose the right type for our property.

Coat, Protect, and Add Beauty to Your House with this Roofing Material

Asphalt shingles are the most popular and commonly used roofing material.

This type of shingle has a good lifespan, can be colored and stylized in different ways, and is one of the cheapest options.

But what if we told you there was an even better type of asphalt shingle? An improved version of this type of shingles that can give you the same benefits a regular asphalt shingle has and even more?

We are talking about fiberglass shingles.

Fiberglass shingles are asphalt shingles, with the difference that this shingle has a plate of fiberglass at the core and is then covered by a coat of asphalt.

For the weather conditions that Calgary residents are used to experiencing, this option is one of the best.

Starting with the lifespan, where asphalt shingles tend to last around 20 years, fiberglass shingles last about 30 years, which also means spending less often on roof replacement.

Also, with an added level of roofing material, the laminate helps protect a roof from high winds, rain, and hail. Because of the extra coating, they are water and fire-resistant. These shingles are, in general, more durable than regular asphalt shingles, as well as easier and faster to install.

And if this weren’t good enough, fiberglass shingles can mimic other materials for different styles, which gives you the option of choosing your preferred style with the best protection.
