Flat Roofing in Wakefield, Leeds and Castleford
A fibreglass roof, otherwise known as a GRP (Glass Reinforced Polyester) roof is made of a polyester resin which is strengthened with glass fibres. First used in the 1930s, the strength and light weight of fibreglass meant it was used for a variety of purposes on aircrafts, boats and cars. Fibreglass is now used extensively in construction and roofing and has a number of advantages including durability, flexibility and ease of installation.
The installation of fibreglass roofing is relatively simple, but should always be completed in dry, mild weather to ensure curing is effective. The first step is to fit specially made edge trims and drip trims around the roof. The next stage is to apply a layer of catalysed resin on top of a high quality dry roof. A layer of fibreglass is then laid on top followed by another layer of catalysed resin. This is then cured before another application of top coat resin is installed to ensure the roof is attractive and weatherproof.

Fibreglass is strong and incredibly resistant, to give your home real protection whatever the weather.
There are no joints on the roof which means that fibreglass roofing has a beautifully smooth appearance.
Fitting a fibreglass roof is a relatively simple and pain-free process, even if your building has a uniquely shaped structure.
There are a range of colours for your fibreglass roofing. If you have a particular shade you want your roof to be in, you have a great chance of finding it with fibreglass roofing.
A properly installed fibreglass roof should for last for at least 25 years. If there is adequate maintenance, little foot traffic and kind weather, there is no reason why your fibreglass roofing can last a lot longer than 25 years.
