Fibreglass Flat Roofing – What Are the Benefits?

Fibreglass Flat Roofing with roof light in greyStruggling to cope with rubber, tile or felt roofing?  Wondering how much it’s going to cost to keep having everything repaired?  It may be time to start thinking about replacing or refurbishing your roofing outright.  If you’ve already looked into getting your roof replaced, you may have come across fibreglass as a viable alternative.

Here at Merlin, we are confident in the fantastic, protective properties of GRP Fibreglass Roofing.  What’s more, we’re always ready to recommend fibreglass flat roofing to anyone who may be in need of a more resistant, hard-wearing roof support system.  But why is fibreglass so recommended when it comes to installing a new flat roof?  Will it pay for itself in the long run?  Let’s take a look.


Cut Down on Maintenance

Let’s start with the basics.  Fibreglass flat roofing is likely to be some of the most reliable, and most resilient, you will find on the market today.  The problem with traditional roofing standards – such as those made with tile or felt – is that they simply weren’t built to last the years.  They may have worked well for families and firms in decades gone by, but when it comes to long-term economy, they really don’t cut it.

Traditional roof material and supplies are hardly resistant against weather.  Rubber and tiles can easily wear down through just a few years of use, which means they may start letting water in and could even pose a security risk.  While it may be affordable to set up this type of roof in the first place, you are going to be spending a lot of money in the long run on keeping things in place.

Fibreglass roofing simply doesn’t need the maintenance or the after-care.  Over the years of running our business, we are still proud to supply a 20-year guarantee on all GRP products.  That includes fibreglass flat roofing.  We are more than confident that you won’t need to repair or adjust your fibreglass roof for two decades after installation.  If we’re wrong, you’re protected by our warranty!


Protect Against Damage

Another great reason to get a flat roof built in fibreglass is to avoid potential damage.  Vandalism and attempts to break in can be easily thwarted with just one coat of GRP, laid flat as your new roof.  Why?  Fibreglass is positively impenetrable.

This means you can rest easy.  While breaking through a roof may not be the first method some people use to break in, tiles and rubber are far easier to do damage to.  What’s more, if your roof is already damaged, it offers a nice little inlet for anyone to come sneaking in.  You should also bear in mind that rodents and other animals would have easy access through traditional roofing.  Any mouse or rat likely to take a bite out of GRP will be left with some serious toothache!

Fibreglass is a great deterrent.  It simply can’t be broken down.  Using our expert tools and resources, we will be able to fit a flat roof for you that keeps weather, intruders and animals out at all costs.


Ease of Installing Fibreglass Flat Roofing

Fibreglass Flat Roofing made from fibreglass can be easily laid and installed at very short notice.  In just a few hours, we will be able to install your roof, and it will be ready to support you and your family for months and years to come.  Roofers choose fibreglass not just because it’s easy to install, but also because it provides such long-term results.  That’s a win-win scenario for everyone involved!

You’re going to need a roof which is easy to look after, cheap to run and simple to set up.  As experts in the installation of roofing with fibreglass, we really do know what we’re talking about!
