Over the years, thermoplastics have become an important part of the roof installation process mainly due to their sustainability and inherent benefits. One of the most useful and revolutionizing products designed using thermoplastics has been the F-Wave REVIA shingles.
These are a type of synthetic shingle designed specifically to endure harsh weather conditions like heavy rain, snowfall, and hailstorms. F-Wave REVIA is being extensively used in residential buildings across the United States.
However, the revamped shingles have not found their way into the Canadian construction market until now. AKRoN Roofing is proud to be the first roofing company in Canada to install the new and more sustainable F-Wave REVIA shingles for one of our clients.
In this blog, we have detailed how the F-Wave REVIA shingles are significantly better than asphalt shingles and what their benefits include.
F-Wave REVIA is a premium synthetic roof shingle specifically designed for residential buildings. In terms of sustainability and durability, they are far superior to traditional asphalt shingles.
The F-Wave REVIA is constructed using a commercial-grade polymer that makes the shingles stronger, lighter, and easier to install and maintain. The shingles are available in a variety of popular colors and classic styles. They have the same beautiful curb appeal as traditional shingles and roofing tiles topped with the ability to withstand high winds, Class 4 hail, and other extreme weather.
In addition to being made from an exclusive blend of commercial-grade materials, they are also rendered with next-level strength and UV-resistant characteristics.
Even though there are still many homeowners who are opting for asphalt shingles due to their low cost, what they don’t understand is that these shingles have a maximum lifespan of approximately 15 years. The initial cost of F-wave REVIA shingles is higher than their asphalt counterparts, but it makes up for the price in terms of performance, durability, and longer lifespan.
Asphalt shingles are glued to the roof, which means they can delaminate over time. Moreover, when struck by heavy rain, hail, and snow, they can be easily cracked leading to granule loss. They are also susceptible to degradation due to prolonged sun exposure. In addition to this, Asphalt shingles have low tear strength and impact resistance.
As compared to these, the F-Wave REVIA is engineered for maximum durability. Moreover, they don’t have granules which means they will not become brittle over time and their performance will not deteriorate. They also have the ability to heal themselves if subjected to minor damage!
In addition to the aforementioned benefits, these synthetic shingles are loaded with several other features. These include:
F-Wave REVIA has not refined shingles, it has redefined them. It is the newest entrant to the roofing industry hence it is natural for people to question the claims made by manufacturers; however, after rigorous testing and re-testing, it has been proven that these synthetic shingles are far superior than the traditionally used shingles.
We are proud to announce that we are the first roofing company in Canada to be working with and installing the F-Wave REVIA premium synthetic residential shingles.
