Strength and Flexibility
Fiberglass roofing offers
flexibility, malleability, and versatility that can match almost any type or style of
roofing. It is usually bought in sheets or panels made of synthetically
produced fine glass fibers. Panels are glazed, providing a superior
waterproofing seal and a tough, durable membrane to your roof’s structure. Fiberglass
is highly resistant to corrosion and chemicals, is shatterproof, and will not
rust, rot, or mildew.
Color and Installation
Fiberglass comes in an endless
variety of colors that are dyed all the way through. With so many sizes and
designs, fiberglass can imitate slate or tile and create a distinct pattern
unique to your roof. Fiberglass is very easy to install due to
its light weight. It requires little maintenance and is much cheaper than other
types of roof paneling, yet it has a life expectancy of about 30 years.
Corrugated fiberglass roofing can be purchased in a heavy duty form
that withstands high winds, heavy snow, and extreme outdoor temperatures. With
interlocking between sheets, this type provides good water run-off. Choose this
type of roofing depending on your style and the design of your roof. If you
choose a transparent color, you can look right through the material to the sky.
Perfect for skylights
or just letting the starts shine through. These panels are also perfect for the
greenhouse or the patio.
Asphalt shingles are the traditional fiberglass type roofing used
today. Architectural or laminated shingles are made of multiple layers of fiberglass.
This type can be used to create the appearance of wood or slate while being
much cheaper than actual wood and slate.
The designs and possibilities of
use for fiberglass roofing are improving constantly. Research your
possibilities on the Internet and you may find that fiberglass is the best
choice for your roof.
