If you’re thinking about having your roofs replaced, then that’s great! Your roofs might’ve endured so many storms and what-not, so it might be high time for you to give it a little bit of tender loving care.
Although, if there’s one thing that you should consider before having your roofs replaced, it’s the fact that there are quite a few shingles out there that you should look into …
If you’re not at all familiar with roof shingles, then there are two basic types that most homeowners go for: fiberglass and organic mat. Now, you might be wondering what’s the difference between these two, right?
To those wanting to use organic shingles, it’s best to know that these types of shingles use a cellulose-fiber kind of mat that’s mainly derived from wood that’s saturated with asphalt to make it waterproof. Now, that might sound a bit complicated, but it’s one of the best options out there.
It has a top coating of adhesive asphalt, and then our team applies ceramic granules that are embedded. They weigh a bit more than their fiberglass counterpart, which makes them more durable!
If the sound of a fiberglass shingle sounds excellent to you, then you have to know that these types of shingles have a glass fiber that’s reinforcing mat manufactured to the shape of the shingle. This type of mat will then be coated by our team with asphalt, which contains mineral fillers.
Unlike organic shingles, this type of fiberglass shingle isn’t waterproof, but once you add the asphalt in, that’ll cause it to be waterproof.
