The roofs of yesterday, largely dependent upon tiling and rubber, may have worked short term – and may certainly have been cheap to set up on the face of things – but anyone having put up with these roofs over the years will likely tell you that constant maintenance and billing headaches are par for the course. Weather in Britain has never been particularly consistent but there’s one thing for sure – when weather does hit, it hits hard – and the drizzle and high wind we’re famous for has had more than a hefty effect upon the roof installations supplied by firms up and down the UK of old.
Consider how much weather your roof has to put up with over a year. While we may get a few weeks of sunshine and little in the way of showers during July and August, the rest of the year is a genuine free-for-all. We get into autumn and wind hits – loosened tiles and imbalanced structuring are on the horizon. Winter, too, holds plenty of hazards for your home – water that can get into traditional tiles can freeze and crack – causing considerable damage which is a nightmare to maintain and replace. We may not have a White Christmas guaranteed, but we could well be seeing ice and snow by the time February rolls around. Any risk of water getting into your home is something that doesn’t bear thinking about – and you owe it to your family and your home to protect against the elements as much as you possibly can.
Here at Merlin, we believe in the brilliance of GRP fibreglass. Fibreglass has long since been the preferred standard of roofers everywhere thanks to its flexibility, wide range of uses and its incredible properties. It’s resilient, weatherproof and looks great. It’s a security deterrent, and we even supply our installations with a 20-year guarantee – buy from us today and we are confident you won’t have to maintain or replace any part of your roof until at least 2038. That’s an incredible two decades – saving you money long term where you can prioritise expenditure elsewhere. There’s no reason to spend less on roofing immediately only for the costs to ramp up month on month when the cracks start developing. We believe no roofing firm should be offering tile or rubber solutions if they intend to offer customers long term resilience and support.
Fibreglass roofing is incredible – just ask our existing clients and customers! Available in a range of colours and both quick and easy to lay and set, it’s the stuff roofers depend upon – and we’ve staked the foundations of our firm on its amazing resilience and properties. If you’re interested in redoing your roof for the year ahead and are considering trying fibreglass for the first time, call us today on 0800 3118 262 or email us with a bespoke query at your convenience. We’re here to help you beat the worst that weather has to send you for 2018 and beyond!
