Benefits of Fiberglass Roofing
One of the greatest benefits of the old asphalt roofing shingles was that they were flexible and very forgiving when it came to roof imperfections.
The newer laminate fiberglass roofing shingles are every bit as flexible but far superior in many ways with many added benefits. Fiberglass roofing shingles are made of advanced roofing materials and come in a wider array of attractive contemporary colours for instant curb appeal.
Unlike other shingles, the fiberglass core and non-porous rock coating on these laminate shingles help prevent the shingles from absorbing water. These superior laminate shingles provide excellent resistance to blistering, buckling and curling.
The fiberglass roofing shingles we use meet or exceed technical standards and include;
Larger Zone For Nailing – Old asphalt shingles typically allowed less than half an inch zone for nailing, which left more room for error, which could invalidate manufacturer warranties. The nailing zone on the new fiberglass shingles is over an inch and a half wide allowing for accurate and quick installation. The larger nail zone also allows for more overlap protection.
Two Rain-Seal Strips – Old asphalt shingles typically had only one seal strip that were at best, ineffective against blow-back leaks. The double seal strips on our fiberglass roofing shingles help prevent and eliminate the problem with blow-back leaks.
Superior UV Protection – Ceramic covered 3M rock offers superior barrier protection against harmful UV rays and the colour won’t fade over time.
