Fiberglass just might be the most exciting building material introduced in the 20th century! When first introduced over 60 years ago, fiberglass revolutionized the roofing industry and is still in use today. Fiberglass has affected almost every aspect of roofing from traditional 3-tab asphalt shingles to flat roofing membranes. For roofing purposes, what we commonly refer to as fiberglass is usually glass-reinforced plastic (GRP), it’s a composite material composed of plastic and extremely fine fibers of glass. Fiberglass roofing systems may just simply incorporate fiberglass as matting material or be incorporated it into a full roofing system.

For traditional asphalt shingles, fiberglass creates a more pliable, tear-proof material than organic mats. Fiberglass is also a key component of newer architectural shingles. Architectural or laminated shingles are composed of multiple layers of fiberglass laminated together. Architectural shingles can give the appearance of wood or even slate, at a fraction of the cost.

Fiberglass roofing panels presents a less expensive alternative to metal roofings such as copper roofing or steel roofing. Fiberglass panel roofing has proven popular because the material is extremely malleable. Fiberglass roofing can come in any shape, color, or texture. Fiberglass roofing panels can come in designs like such as tapered roofing panels, shingled roofing patterns, or corrugated roofing panels. Corrugated fiberglass roofing, like corrugated metal roofing, can strengthen the integrity of the fiberglass panel.

When installed properly, fiberglass roofing can offer an exceptional waterproofing seal. To receive the full benefits of fiberglass roofing, it’s best to consult with a professional roofing contractor.
