Fiberglass shingles are a form of asphalt shingles and are one of the most popular roofing options in North America. They are durable, budget-friendly, lightweight, and can work well as a DIY project. Fiberglass is a great option for roofing because it is a tough and very resilient material that is non-porous, does not change shape, and won’t dry out. This makes fiberglass shingles less prone to shattering when exposed to extreme winds, cold weather, or when walked on during installation and regular maintenance. Fiberglass shingles also have a higher fire rating than organic-mat varieties and generally carry a longer warranty.
Fiberglass shingles are made of a woven fiberglass base mat, covered with a waterproof asphalt coating, and topped with ceramic granules that shield the shingles from harmful UV rays. Because of the composition of the fiberglass mat, less asphalt is needed to give the shingles their durability and strength, making them a lighter and more environmentally friendly option than traditional organic-mat shingles.
