The Cornish weather can be extreme at times. Whether it be glorious sunshine in the summer or heavy downpours in winter, your roof needs to be able to withstand whatever nature throws at it. Read on to find out why we’d recommend fibreglass roofing to anyone in search of a robust flat roof solution.
What Is Fibreglass Roofing?
Fibreglass roofing is also known as GRP, which stands for Glass Reinforced Polyester. it’s a material that’s made up of glass fibres and polyester resin. This durable, yet light material is effective at waterproofing, so it’s great to use for your flat roof. Fibreglass is quick to apply and doesn’t require heat to bond with the surface. This usually means it’s not too expensive to install. Its longevity also means you’ll get excellent value for money.
What Are The Benefits Of Fibreglass Roofs?
Fibreglass is strong and long-lasting, so your installation should last for many years. In the event that your roof gets damaged, repairs are easy to carry out without needing to replace the whole system. Some grades of fibreglass flat roofing can be walked on, so it’s a great option for people who want to use the flat roof as a deck or walkway.
What makes fibreglass roofing unique is its lack of seams. There are no gaps, weak points or seams that need to be attended to. This roof type requires very little maintenance other than a good clean every so often.
