The “best” shingle type differs between roofs, projects, availability of other materials and tools, and more. For both types of shingles – organic and fiberglass – there are also different, unique benefits. For example:
- Fiberglass – Fiberglass shingles are able to withstand fire damage and moisture damage.
- Organic – Organic shingles stay in place better in wind, and are easier to install in cold.
It also depends on the compatibility of these shingles with different roofs, the budget, the type of look and more. Newman Roofing Company is happy to tell you all about all of the shingles that we carry, so that you can feel better informed about the roofing materials available.
Note that all of our shingles are in compliant with ASTM Standards, which include ASTM D 3462 for Fiberglass Shingles, and ASTM D 225 for Organic Shingles. These are the standards for quality set forth by the American Society for Testing and Materials.
