Shingles Roofing Rockingham, NC
Asphalt roof shingles are available in two types – Fiberglass and Organic-Mat. Skywalker Roofing of rockingham 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 rockingham roofing contractors at Skywalker Roofing can help you make the best decision for your rockingham 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.

- Our story with Skywalker began when I surfed the web for a roofing company that included metal roofing in its services. Skywalker was the second company I reviewed and after reading everything on their website I just got a really good feeling that they were the people we wanted to come into our home and give us a quote for the job. The salesperson (Wyatt Brown) arrived on time, a smile on his face, a good firm handshake and revved up to give us his presentation. He was an impressive guy with a great personality and very down to earth. He physically climbed on our roof and took a video of what was going on up there and showed it to us. We were astonished at how 24 years of NC weather had managed to really play havoc on our roof. He continued with his presentation, we picked our color and signed the contract. We knew we had the right company who had the right people to service our needs. Well, the installation day arrived on one of the hottest days in NC history and the crew arrived with all their equipment and started ripping off old shingles. The crew supervisor (Quinton) was very customer oriented as he would come to the door and let us know exactly what they were doing in case we had questions. They were all hard workers, neat, tidy, focused and two and a half days later we had a gorgeous Mansard Brown Standing Seam Metal Roof on our house. It is beautiful and has really enhanced the look of our country cottage home so much. The crew did a cleanup before they left and that included checking for any nails that might have landed in the yard. They blew off the debris on the front porch and deck and they were spotless. We were so satisfied with Skywalker because from the beginning to the end we were treated as friends of the family. By the way, Skywalker is a family run business and that says a lot.
- 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 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 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.
