Shingles Roofing Durham, NC
Asphalt roof shingles are available in two types – Fiberglass and Organic-Mat. Skywalker Roofing of durham offers Asphalt roof replacement and repair service for both types of shingle roofs. Organic shingles use a cellulose-fiber mat derived from wood that is saturated with asphalt to make it waterproof. It is then coated with adhesive asphalt and then ceramic granules are embedded. Organic shingles contain around 40% more asphalt per square (100 sq. ft.) than their glass fiber counterpart which makes them weigh more and gives them excellent durability and blow-off resistance.
On the other hand, Fiberglass shingles have a glass fiber reinforcing mat that is manufactured to the exact shape of the shingle. This mat is then coated with asphalt which contains mineral fillers. While the fiberglass mat is not waterproof by itself, asphalt makes it waterproof. Fiberglass makes the shingles strong. However, the asphalt itself will not stick to the mat. For this reason, “fillers” are used. The fillers in the asphalt cling to the glass fibers in the mat. The asphalt then encapsulates the glass fibers, fills all the little holes and voids in the mat rendering it waterproof. After this cools a bit, adhesive asphalt is used to cover the mat and the ceramic granules are then embedded.
Which Type of Asphalt Roofing to Choose?
The durham roofing contractors at Skywalker Roofing can help you make the best decision for your durham home when it comes to asphalt shingles. Fiberglass shingles are thinner, lighter, and carry a better fire rating than organic shingles, but organic-mat shingles are tougher and stay more flexible in cold weather when freeze and thaw cycle is in its full glory.
We are not limited to Asphalt Shingles but can also help you with Wood Shingles that are derived from wood blocks; they are tapered and generally have a relatively smooth surface. Wood Shakes are split from wood blocks; they are less uniform in thickness than shingles, are sometimes grooved, and frequently have little tapering.
We are also very well known for Metal Roofing needs of our residential and commercial customers in North Carolina.

Skywalker Roofing Reviews
- Skywalker roofing was very professional from the first time I talked with them until completion of the job. I was given an estimate within one hour of the time the estimator arrived, and it did not change. The work was done accurately and professionally. I am very satisfied with their work.
- The whole process from the initial phone call, into the office, and to the financing process was flawless, seamless, and effortless. Everyone there knew what they were doing and walked us through step by step, so we knew what to expect during each step. They really made the whole process so easy.
- Skywalker Roofing company is awesome! When most of the roofers in Greensboro were busy, Skywalker Roofing team answered and handled all my requirements, and next day Wyatt Brown came to my house and took an in-depth inspection of my damaged roof. The same day they fixed my roof corner and the hole near a gutter. I am very thankful to Skywalker team.
- Skywalker Roofing staff did an excellent job for our flat roof replacement. We have reached out to multiple roofers, but Skywalker roofing was the only one that seemed reasonable. The team was easy to work with and patiently answered all our queries about the company, the material they used, the time they fix. Highly recommended whenever you're looking for the best roofing services.
- Skywalker Roofing is one of the rare companies that communicate as much as a customer would like. I was updated daily from my initial request for an estimate all the way through the day after my project was complete. I am extremely happy with our new roof, and the crew that came out was fantastic. I would recommend Skywalker Roofing to anyone who is looking for roofers in Greensboro area.
