As time goes by, you’ll notice that your roof system starts deteriorating, leaking and struggling to keep its integrity. You may be left dissatisfied by the performance of your previous roofing system. In due time, you’ll have to call a roofing company to assist you with choosing new roofing materials for your roof replacement. While there are a lot of options to choose from, however, shingles stand out as one of the most popular roofing options. In this post, Century Roofing and Siding list some of the benefits of choosing fiberglass shingles.

What Are Fiberglass Shingles?

Fiberglass shingles differ from organic asphalt shingles as they have a fiberglass layer instead of felt or paper-soaked asphalt, and are bound by resin. Fiberglass shingles come in three types, namely, three-tab asphalt, architectural-style shingles and fiberglass asphalt, which all cater to different budgets and needs.

Benefits of Fiberglass Shingles

1.Ease of Installation.  Compared to slate or tile roofs, fiberglass shingles give roofers an easier time due to their lightweight material, resulting in faster installation and repair times. Also, fiberglass shingles are significantly cheaper than other options, such as wood or metal shingles.

2. Fire-resistance. Fiberglass shingles have higher fire resistance compared to organic asphalt shingles and other materials, offering better safety for the owner. 

3. Eco-Friendly. Fiberglass shingles are better for the environment since they contain less asphalt and can be recycled at the end of their lifespan.

4. Versatility. Fiberglass shingles come in a variety of colors, thicknesses, and finishes. These options allow you to freely mix-and-match components and create a combination that will truly match your architectural style.
