Fibreglass Shingles & Organic Asphalt Shingles

At Chisholm Roofing, we offer both types of asphalt roofing: organic mat shingles and the fibreglass mat variety. Which is the best choice for your home or business?

Organic Mat Shingles

Most people choose asphalt shingles in West Vancouver for roofing because they’re economical and come in a variety of costs and styles. Here in Canada, many asphalt composition shingles are typically organic, or matted with natural cellulose fibres like wood. The reason? Not only are Canadians concerned about environmental protection, but we also appreciate the flexibility of these organic materials in cold weather.

Fibreglass Mat Shingles

Fibreglass mat shingles in Richmond weigh less with their fibreglass backing and with less asphalt in their overall composition. Fibreglass mat shingles in New Westminster usually have a higher fire rating than organic mat shingles and tend to fare better in warmer, wetter areas, as they repel water more effectively.

Although asphalt shingles in North Vancouver tend to come with warranty packages from 20 to 40 years, it is recommended that you replace them every 10 to 20 years, since your shingles are unlikely to face perfect conditions day after day. When your asphalt roof in Burnaby needs replacement, you’ll see patchy areas where the surface granules have worn off, and perhaps even curling. At Chisholm Roofing, we’re pleased to recommend the heaviest, most durable asphalt shingle in Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond, New Westminster, North Vancouver and West Vancouver you can buy!
