Why Replace Your Portico Roof with Fibreglass Roofing?

GRP fibreglass is a standard that many roofers and construction workers swear by. Not only is it easy to set up and to maintain, it is amazingly flexible. In addition to this, fibreglass roofing holds many brilliant properties which will help to make homeowners’ lives easier in the long run. But what about portico roofing – can fibreglass help to make your individual slopes and alcoves easier to manage? The answer is – of course – yes!

Whether you choose to install a whole new roof for your property or just a few touches here and there, fibreglass is famous for being a premium choice. That isn’t in terms of cost or pricing, either – as it will more than pay for itself in a short period of time. However, why are more and more people investing in fibreglass when it comes to setting up and reinstalling portico roofing? Let’s take a closer look.

Fibreglass Portico Roofing – The Benefits

Just as you’d expect from a fibreglass roof anywhere on your property, portico roofing in GRP is well-protected against the elements. Fibreglass is famously weather-resistant, which means whether you are subject to hail, snow, sleet or heavy rain, you’ll always be protected. Portico canopies are crucial for keeping porches and outbuildings dry and warm. Without a portico roof, these areas are going to get wet and cold very quickly indeed.

What’s more, portico roofing built in older standards such as tile and felt simply don’t hold up against the elements. Put simply, a traditional roof is going to falter under the strain of even the mildest of downpours. While older roofing options may have worked wonders in decades gone by, they simply do not hold up in terms of modern expectations. For that reason, many people choose to head straight for fibreglass.

Portico Roofing for Your Property

You may be interested in fibreglass roofing for your portico standards for a variety of reasons. However, one thing you may not have thought about is the look. Traditional portico roofing doesn’t always look so great. You can normally spot portico standards a mile away, unless you use modern, less visually offensive material!

Fibreglass portico roofing can blend easily into any existing roofing style. This means it’s easy for you to set up a unique look that won’t stand out awkwardly or clash with any of your existing fascia or standards. One of the huge benefits of fibreglass roofing is, of course, the fact that you can build and lay it in several different colours and styles. It is hugely sought-after in modern building design thanks to its incredible versatility! Therefore, if you do want to create a portico look that benefits your property rather than takes away from it, fibreglass is naturally going to be an excellent choice.

Zero Maintenance

Portico roofing can, from time to time, be some of the most awkward roofing standards you’ll ever need to maintain. That’s because they can be small and complex to handle, and don’t arrive in standard shapes and sizes. You’re going to need help from a seasoned team of experts who work with the best materials and best tools in the business to get the quality roofing looks you deserve.
Beyond this, of course, you should consider the maintenance angle. Unlike traditional roofing, fibreglass roof standards are highly unlikely to require maintenance across the years. This means you are immediately saving money the minute you install a new portico roof. In fact, we’re so confident in our assessment that we offer a 20-year guarantee on all fibreglass roofing we supply and fit. You can’t get that level of confidence from any other type of roofing!

Make the Right Change

Portico roofing doesn’t have to be tricky to set up and install. In fact, fibreglass roofing has helped to make it even easier to swallow over the years. Therefore, if you are in need of new roofing for your porch or outbuilding, it makes perfect sense to choose a system that’s guaranteed to weather – well – the weather – for years to come. What’s more, nothing is more secure and stable than fibreglass for portico roofing. You have our word!
