Durable & Weather-Resistant Asphalt Roofing in Calgary

With anywhere from 25 to 50 year warranties, fibreglass saturated with asphalt are the most popular and budget friendly roofing options available. Sunik Roofing works with the recommended brands for quality you can trust. 

Fibreglass Roof Shingles

Fibreglass shingles are constructed from durable asphalt and granules much like asphalt shingles, but they are reinforced with glass fibres and lack the paper content found in other shingles. While both types of shingles are installed the same way, and have similar uses in roof repair projects, fibreglass is more resistant to moisture and heat. If you want to know more about fibreglass and asphalt roofing in Calgary, consult with the professionals at Sunik Roofing.

FIBREGLASS ROOF SHINGLES: PROS
  • LIGHTER WEIGHT - Fiberglass shingles are thinner and lighter in weight, so they’re easier to carry and install. Because of this, professional installation tends to cost less. Fiberglass shingles are also easier to install as a DIY project.

 

  • BETTER FIRE PROTECTION - Fiberglass shingles have a higher fire rating than organic-mat shingles.

 

  • LESS EXPENSIVE - Fiberglass shingles cost slightly less.

 

  • ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS - Because fiberglass shingles have less asphalt, they’re better for the environment.

FIBREGLASS ROOF SHINGLES: CONS
  • NOT AS DURABLE - Fiberglass shingles are not as heavy and rugged because they contain less asphalt. They won’t last as long.

 

  • NOT IDEAL FOR COLD CLIMATES - Fiberglass shingles don’t perform as well as in cold climates.

Asphalt Roof Shingles

Both types of asphalt shingles are among the most affordable roofing products. They’re available in a wide variety of colors and designs, they’re easy to install and they’re sold with long warranties. However, both products tend to be sensitive to weather. They can blow off in strong winds or fade and discolor in the sun.

ASPHALT ROOF SHINGLES: PROS
  • MORE DURABLE - Organic-mat shingles tend to last longer than fiberglass shingles because they contain more asphalt. They’re more rugged and more likely to stay put during severe storms.

 

  • BETTER FOR COLD CLIMATES - Organic-mat shingles perform much better in cold climates. If you live in a region with harsh winters, they’re highly recommended over fiberglass.
ASPHALT ROOF SHINGLES: CONS
  • PRONE TO WARPING - Organic-mat shingles absorb more water, so they’re more likely to warp.

 

  • HEAVIER- Organic-mat shingles are heavier, which makes them more difficult to install.

 

  • INFERIOR FIRE PROTECTION - Organic-mat shingles are not as highly rated for fire protection because they are usually paper-based.

 

  • MORE EXPENSIVE - Asphalt shingles are slightly more expensive.
