The many commercial uses of fibreglass roofing

Warehouse roofRoofing has changed considerably over the decades, and many would argue that this is for the better.  While tiles, rubber and more besides have long been seen as the cost-effective solution for protecting your business or premises against weather and intrusion alike, it’s taken us a fair time to realise that there may be more efficient and financially viable options on the market.  For us here at Merlin, that option has always been GRP fibreglass – which we provide to businesses and enterprises as well as public buildings with a twenty-year guarantee.  But why is this, and how can fibreglass truly help in a commercial sense?

Why is fibreglass roofing the better option

Fibreglass roofing has been the preferred roofing material of choice for contractors and roofing experts for considerable time, and is therefore fast becoming the first choice for many businesses looking to protect their livelihoods, customers, staff and stock against the elements.  It’s not hard to understand why – GRP fibreglass is famously impenetrable to even the most tremendous of forces, and it’s also incredibly easy to plan for and lay down.  Further to this, it needs barely any maintenance – if at all – putting it strides ahead of traditional felt or tile roofing of old.

But where can fibreglass roofing be of real benefit on the commercial stage?  There’s many options – and whether you possess a flat roof that’s simple to cover or a more ornate design that requires more complex planning, it can be moulded and laid out to fit your exact specifications.  Complexity is absolutely no barrier – meaning that no matter the type of business you run, or the commercial use you need your new roofing to support, GRP fibreglass can provide effective, weather-resistant and insulating support all year round.

Fibreglass roofing’s uses

Fibreglass roofPerhaps you run a factory, where you need your supplies to be kept warm and dry as much as you do your team – or even a school, where children and teachers are at stake.  What if your church roof is in need or refurbishment?  Or, alternatively, you could run a farm – where it’s essential that you keep a variety of animals and livestock safe and warm all year round.  Fibreglass roofing can help in all these regards and more – and even if you need only the slightest touch to be added to a listed or historical building, Merlin can offer the professionalism and respect you need to be able to protect your clientele and building from the ravages of nature and the threat of security breaches.


If your business is in need of a new roofing installation and you are considering a tile or felt alternative, allow us to propose a more steadfast, flexible alternative.  GRP fibreglass is built to last, and with our two decade guarantee, it’ll weather the years without the need for constant vigilance or even occasional maintenance.  For more information on how we can help your business or enterprise with effective coverage all year round, contact us today on 0800 3118 262 or email us at your convenience!
