What is Fibreglass Roofing?
Fibreglass is a polymer plastic matrix reinforced with glass fibres. Fibreglass, also known as glass reinforced plastic or glass resin plastic (GRP), is typically used for flat roofs but, can be used for pitch roofs as well. Fibreglass roofing uses fibreglass laminate applied over conditioned plywood rafters. The roof is then finished with a fibreglass trim instead of traditional flashing, and coated with a pre-pigmented topcoat in a colour to suit your aesthetic requirements. We are specialist and can help find the best solution for your style of roof.
The Benefits of Fibreglass
Fibreglass is durable and lightweight, which makes it an ideal construction material in instances when it needs to be hoisted up a ladder. Unlike other flat roof materials, including asbestos, fibreglass poses no health risks. Fibreglass is also ideal for small craft construction, and can be used not only for large roofs, but also for smaller roofs like a garden shed or animal hutch. Fibreglass is robust, flexible, weather resistant, and will never corrode. Fibreglass is one of the most inexpensive roofing materials, requiring little to no maintenance and few repairs.
Fibreglass roofing has a life expectancy of up to 30 years. In that time, some minor repairs may be required. Although a fibreglass roof requires almost no maintenance, the condition of the roof should be checked regularly to spot any leaks early on. Due to fibreglass being an inexpensive material that is easy to work with, fibreglass roof repair tends to be fairly cheap, although this will depend on the severity of the damage and the labour required to fix the problem.
