Fibreglass Roofing: The Cost-Efficiency in the Long Run

The roofing trade has changed massively over the years, and while this can be thanks to cost-saving initiatives and trials with different materials, the evolution of roofing in the UK has stepped up a gear all for the better. While tile and rubber roofing was all the rage and the acceptable standard going back decades – up and down the country – it remains to be said that a new leader has emerged in terms of protection, versatility and cost-effective running – and as you are already here, you likely already know what that leader is! It is, of course – GRP Fibreglass.

The Long Lifespan of Fibreglass

Fibreglass roofingHere at Merlin, we live and breathe fibreglass roofing. It has steadily become the go-to standard for homeowners and roofing contractors alike, and for more than a handful of reasons. While rubber or tile roofing may be affordable in the first instance and from an installation point of view, these standards can become a real nuisance further down the line – they’re wide open to intrusion and vandalism, and not only this, but they will also be subject to heaving maintenance and patch jobs over the years. The facts are plain and simple – they just don’t keep the weather out!

Fibreglass, however, does – full stop. We don’t offer twenty year guarantees without reason! While there may be occasional need to patch up in very rare circumstances, a good fibreglass roofing job will see you right for up to two decades – offering you a great-looking, dependable roof coverage that will keep out intruders and the worst that the British weather cycle has to offer. Consider this – how much have you spent over the years on keeping your traditional roof up to code? How many patching jobs have you had to shell out for? With fibreglass, we can help round that figure down to absolute zero.

Cost-effectiveness should be on your radar when shopping for a new roof that the price of installation outright – what can put some people off installing fibreglass is the outright cost – but it’s plain to see that the cost of fibreglass roofing pays for itself in just a few months of usage. This, again, is thanks to the fact that there’s next to no maintenance required – a negligible amount in comparison with the patch jobs and fixes you’d be expected to put forward with a tile or rubber roofing installation.
