It should go without saying that a well-kept home is a well-loved home. However, there may come a time when your pride and joy is in need of some serious maintenance. Maintenance can cost money, unfortunately – which means you’re often going to need to look for some genuine cost-effective ways to preserve your property for months and years to come. In need of a new roof, or a bit of patching up? Why not consider fibreglass roof repair?
Fibreglass is a material that most roofers, if not all, swear by. It has quickly become the cost-effective, flexible standard that both homeowners and contractors prefer. But why is this? Is it due to how it looks? Is it as a result of it providing long-term protection? All in all, it is a little of both.
Roof repair is something which, unfortunately, comes along every so often. This is especially the case when you are working with old, worn-down tiles or rubber roofing which simply won’t hold up the way it used to. Getting your roof looking great again can be an uphill struggle if you’re still sticking by the same old methods and materials. Truth be told, the best thing you could possibly do is move away from the roofing repair standards of yesteryear. We’ve moved on since then – and fibreglass really is the future.
Fibreglass is popular thanks to its incredible resistance. Not only will it transform the look of a roof which has seen better days, but it will also provide you and your family with steadfast weather protection for years to come. Here at Merlin, we are so confident in its worth that we supply a 20-year guarantee with every installation. That’s our way of letting you know that you won’t need to patch up or make repairs again for another two decades. That’s incredible cost-effectiveness!
Plenty of people love fibreglass for the sheer style and aesthetic. GRP is famously flexible not only in its application but also in its look. You can install fibreglass roofing and make repairs in a variety of colours, shades and looks. There’s absolutely no reason to stick to boring greys or blacks if you want to. If you want to stand out a little, you could opt for brighter, more vivid colours instead.
The major reason for getting your roof repaired with fibreglass, and with a local team who knows the material well, is that you’re probably not going to need to repair again for a very long time. You have a choice between patching up with a stopgap material or making a serious investment by repairing your roof with fibreglass. We obviously think the right choice is clear.
Some people worry that installing or repairing with fibreglass may make their roofs stick out like sore thumbs. This really isn’t the case. Fibreglass roof repair can be as discreet and as low key as you like it, meaning that unless you actually want a vivid green roofing solution, you can blend the material in with your existing roof. We do, however, generally recommend that you opt for a full re-installation rather than a simple patch job.
Roofing repair with fibreglass simply looks fantastic. There’s a real robustness to GRP that shines through with the look. What’s more, it will help to craft a roofing solution that looks impenetrable. That, of course, is because it is. There is nothing quite like fibreglass for withstanding vandalism or attempted breakage.
If you’ve been suffering from the same problem for some time when it comes to regular roofing damage, it may well be time to make the leap to fibreglass. While tile and rubber may have served us well over the years, neither hold up any more when it comes to viable home protection. They may be cheap, but you will inevitably end up spending a lot of money in the long run on maintenance. With fibreglass, you get a great-looking roof which withstands the various tests that time and weather have to throw at you. That’s always a good thing.
If your roof is in need of repair and you are keen to look for a material and a service to ensure long term results, consider GRP fibreglass. Call Merlin today on 0800 3118 262 or email us at your convenience and we will always be happy to offer you a quote.
