You should invest money in your roof. And, what better way to protect your home than with quality roofing materials like fiberglass shingles? But, are they really worth the higher cost than regular asphalt shingles? CMS Roofing, your expert roofer, discusses their key features and more.
Fiberglass shingles are one of the most sustainable roofing materials on the market. They have better recyclable properties compared to ordinary asphalt shingles.
Fiberglass shingles have many beneficial features, including ultraviolet (UV) ray resistance, a waterproof asphalt coating, high fire safety ratings and not shattering easily. These features are beneficial in extending the service life and performance of your roof.
Fiberglass shingles are created from a woven fiberglass base mat with waterproof asphalt coating and ceramic granules. Their components create a tough exterior and remain resistant to warping and drying.
Roofing contractors always suggest matching your shingles with the climate of your area. But, fiberglass shingles are perfect for any weather conditions and still deliver the same excellent results.
Advanced Energy Efficiency
Fiberglass shingles have less asphalt than organic mat-based shingles, which makes them easier to transport and install. Current fiberglass shingles have even been manufactured with “cool roof” technology to cut down on heat absorption, making for more comfortable temperatures in a home.
