I am asked the same question almost on a daily basis. Which type of shingles do you recommend? This question used to be complicated, however today it is very straight forward, and the answer is Fiberglass Shingles. With the evolution of shingles over the years, which included the use of asphalt 3 tab shingles, organic shingles and asphalt architectural shingles, the shingle manufacturers of the country have finally got it.
Asphalt and fibreglass shingle look the same. They’re both made from asphalt and granules. They’re installed exactly the same way too. The main difference is the layer of fiberglass enables the shingle to absorb less moisture and be more resistant to heat, which increases their durability in today’s warm climate. As today’s shingles are now offering a new architectural appearance, they also offer the durability of a thicker shingle than the traditional 3-tab shingle. Today’s model such as the BP Mystique 42 or IKO Cambridge, offer their customers the best possible shingle in today’s age. These companies have basically taken the outdated 3-tab shingle and joined two of them together to make a more durable, curb appealing, fiberglass shingle.
As a BP Certified Roofer, Bancroft Roofing Solutions tells their customers to go with the BP Mystique 42 or BP Everest shingles, as this is the top of the line of shingles in today’s market.
