Why We Use Fiberglass Shingles

Asphalt shingles are available in two varieties: fiberglass and organic. However, organic has quickly fallen out of favor for fiberglass due to its better performance. 

Both types of shingles are made of asphalt-covered with granules, but the material underneath becomes the distinguishing factor. “Organic” shingles are usually made of cardboard, wood, and other “organic” products saturated in asphalt. 

Fiberglass shingles are made out of a mat of glass fiber (also saturated with asphalt), strengthening the shingle. In turn, it is more heat resistant, less likely to tear, crack, or curl as your roof ages. 

Many manufacturers are now discontinuing organic shingles in favor of fiberglass. The Calgary roofing market and many homes all over the world are turning to fiberglass shingle installations as a better alternative in the long run when they look for shingle repairs. Consider using fiberglass shingles the next time you need a replacement.
