While many people will largely make use of brilliant GRP fibreglass to replace and repair their overall roof – whether it’s at home or at work – there are a few touches here and there which can still benefit from its brilliance which you may not already be aware of. Not only can fibreglass be used to line and protect ponds, wet rooms and can be used to great effect wherever waterproofing may be required, there are a few windows in your home which you may not have thought about when it comes to coverage and protection. Today, we’re going to be taking a quick look at bay windows.
Bay windows are an absolute asset to homes in that they help to let in a huge amount of natural light – and in that they generally give you a huge scope to look out of. They are a major selling point for homes across suburban areas even in the modern age. However, with bay window installations comes the threat of water damage. As bay windows traditionally stick out by a small distance, there is a gap between the edge of the unit and your home’s outer wall – meaning that unless you have a solid piece of roofing or coverage installed directly above the window, you will be running the risk of letting in all manner of weather.
Traditionally, bay window coverage has been catered to by lead roofing over the years – but as fibreglass has become more and more widely used, more and more homeowners have noticed the sheer difference in specification and quality. All of our fibreglass arrives with a 20 year guarantee – meaning that we assure each and every one of our customers that they will receive up to two decades of solid, reliable roofing without the need to maintain or replace. With that in mind, you’re instantly saving yourself a useful chunk of money. Fibreglass roofing pays for itself – as it goes!
Fibreglass is perfect for bay window roofing as unlike lead alternatives it is resistant to expansion and contraction cracking, and it is also impervious to intrusion or human damage. Large windows are obviously going to be a focus point for many would-be thieves, which of course means you are going to need to protect them as much as you possibly can. Fibreglass can fill in and protect awkward and unusual shapes and areas such as those overlooking bay windows, and for that reason, it is well worth considering replacing or refitting your existing system with this new material.
