GRP Roofing System – A Brief Guide

If you’re looking to upgrade or repair your existing roofing system, there’s a good chance you may have already heard about GRP fibreglass. While plenty of homes and businesses over the years have been happy to use rubber, tiles and felt as roofing standards, things have moved on in a big way. For the most protection you can get against intruders, vandalism and weather damage, your home and roof are going to need support from a robust, long-lasting material. Look no further than a GRP roofing system.


A GRP roofing system is one which is built to last. Here at Merlin, we always offer our customers a flexible 20-year guarantee with every installation. That means, essentially, you will be looking at two whole decades before you need to make any repairs or adjustments to your roof. That’s peace of mind for you and your bank balance. With traditional roofing systems, such as those built in rubber or felt, you are always likely to need to patch things up or to make extensive repairs after just a few years.


GRP_fibreglass_flat_roofingGRP fibreglass is, by construction, completely and utterly resistant. It’s damage-proof, it’s water-proof, and it’s even strong enough to walk on. A GRP roofing system is one which can withstand an incredible amount of pressure, making it a prime favourite of many roofing experts.

It’s also super simple to install. Fibreglass can be moulded to fill various gaps and nooks, meaning that it can supply complete coverage for even the most complex of roofing systems. While traditional roofing methods and materials may offer basic coverage and protection, fibreglass makes sure to keep all bases covered and airtight. It’s even fantastic for wet room flooring for similar reasons.

Fibreglass roofing also looks fantastic. One of the added benefits of GRP is that it can be ordered and installed in a wide range of colours and styles, meaning that it can always easily blend in with your existing building. Alternatively, it can stand out as much as you want it to.


One of the main questions people ask about GRP roofing systems is whether or not it is worth the initial cost. Here at Merlin, we are confident you’ll see the cost-effectiveness of fibreglass after just a few months of use. While you would need to pay out for repairs and patches along the way for traditional roofing systems, GRP pays for itself in the sheer protection it brings decade after decade. It’s a serious investment – and one you may well benefit from making if you’re serious about protecting your home and family or business from the elements, and from intrusion.
