Why Fibreglass Shingles? Long-lasting Quality!
Fibreglass shingles are a type of asphalt roof and the most popular roofing product in Canada. Their popularity stems from the fact that they are a great-looking, low-maintenance and affordable roofing option. Depending on the shingle you select, you may also benefit from wind resistance, impact resistance and stain-fighting technology to help your roof look great and last for decades.
Sometimes called asphalt shingles, asphalt is only one component of the shingle. The base is made from a woven fibreglass mat to which an asphalt coating is applied. The benefit of the fibreglass mat is two-fold: less asphalt is needed in the manufacturing process and the shingles are lighter while still remaining extremely durable. They are more environmentally-friendly and more durable than older, asphalt-only shingles. The top layer of granules is ceramic and protect the shingle from UV rays while giving your roof the colour you desire.

The Many Benefits of Fibreglass Shingles
One of the most praised benefits of fibreglass shingles is they are one of the most affordable roofing products for your new roof. Available in styles that mimic slate, wood shake and decorative roofing at a significantly lower price, you won’t find one product with so many options. When you compare their average life, initial cost and low maintenance, most homeowners agree they’re the best product for the money. Our area is subject to both strong winds and hail. When you choose a fibreglass shingle to replace your asphalt roof, look at some of the new technology – like impact resistance. With an impact-resistant shingle, your roof can better withstand hail and avoid damage.
