Why installing grp roofing may be better than repairing your old roof

Garage-GRP-RoofingRoofing materials and trends have changed considerably over the years – while slate, tile and felt roofing may have done the job for many homes and families across the decades, these materials have often proven to be troublesome in terms of their need for repair and constant vigilance.  While felt options may be considerably cheap – and, for a lot of people, a viable choice – there are a number of reasons as to why you may do well considering replacing your roof constitution outright with GRP fibreglass as opposed to opting for a quick repair here and there.

The main reason is simple – felt roofing is quick to deteriorate, and can be notorious for letting in water if you give it enough time or weather damage.  Roofs take on an awful lot and they do a fantastic job of protecting us from the elements – but while felt may have been a viable option in the years of old, it is struggling to stand up on its own two feet as a premier source of home protection.  Many owners of felt roofing installations find that they need to repair and replace certain elements of the coverage regularly – and while it may have been an affordable option at the point of sale, it becomes less financially viable when you take into account the amount of repairs that will be required later on in its lifespan.

Saving money with a reliable alternative

Repairing a felt roof is, essentially, a never-ending job.  You can never be assured of long-term safety and security with a felt option as it needs constant care and intervention over years of use.  For anyone looking to save money, this surely makes little sense!  Arguably, therefore, this is why GRP fibreglass is picking up speed in becoming one of the nation’s most popular roofing materials.

GRP Fibreglass roofing lasts longer

Unlike felt, GRP fibreglass is built to withstand decades of use, is easy to install, and requires little to no maintenance.  Once it’s down, it’s down for the long haul.  Our GRP fibreglass roofing comes with a twenty-year guarantee, meaning that we are certain that you’ll get the best coverage available for your roof for years and years to come.  GRP fibreglass is flexible, strong and – while it may cost more initially than a felt installation – will reap financial dividends for you as it will require none of the endless vigilance and repair work that a felt roof will usually need.  In addition to this, GRP fibreglass is resistant against intruders and therefore is doubly effective in keeping you and your family safe and secure.
