Thomas Roof Restoration recommends fibreglass roofs for flat roofs. A fibreglass roof gives long lasting durability and peace of mind. We give a 20 year guarantee on all our new fibreglass roofs.
Many glass fibre laminates made during the early days of GRP production in the 1940s are still in use today. Extensive testing has demonstrated the typical life expectancy of a GRP roof product to be well in excess of 50 years. And, tests conducted to date have shown 'no deterioration' infrastructure or performance throughout the testing period. Additionally, because GRP products or use in extreme conditions such as underwater, when used in the manufacture of boats, a GRP product applied by a specialist company could be expected to last a lifetime.
GRP has a number of benefits compared to traditional roofing products, especially for flat roofing. There are a number of health & safety benefits from installing a GRP roofing system because GRP products are cold laid and therefore not require any form of heat treatment, helping to protect installers and the general public. As GRP roofing systems are cold-applied they are not subject to the same prohibitive insurance premiums levied at installers using hot-works. Unlike traditional flat roofing systems, GRP flat roofs are extremely durable and completely waterproof, plus they can be finished in any wide range of colours and include options such as non slip finishes. The entire area on a GRP roof is encapsulated into one single continuous GRP membrane and there are no seams joints or welds. It is also completely UV resistant. GRP roofing systems are also highly adaptable allowing conversion of the roof area to include features such as balconies or walkways within the roof area. Special features such as roof lights can also be included within a GRP roofing system. GRP roofing systems can also be used instead of pitched roofs or to make special features. The major benefit of GRP roofing comes from the fact that a high-quality GRP roofing system which is installed correctly should remain leak-free for life.
We use the Cure It fibreglass roofing system and we are qualified installers. Attention to detail is taken in the laying of the decking and preparation of the underlying layers to ensure your roof remains watertight and looking good for years to come.
