 The benefits of a GRP flat roof

While many homeowners and businesses may opt for roofing in the form of rubber or tiles, there is much to be said for a GRP flat roof – glass reinforced plastic has fast become the material of choice for homes that require resilient, cost-effective roofing that, in time, will pay for itself.  There are many reasons as to why GRP has become the premier choice for new and refurbished roofs alike, and here are just a few of them:

1) Longevity

Unlike other roofing materials and types available on the market today, a GRP flat roof comes with a guarantee that is said to last a lifetime – and twenty years at the least.  This means that you can rely upon a flat and durable roofing solution for as long as you intend to live in your home – but if you choose to vacate, the future owners will likely feel the benefits too!  It’s a great choice if you’re interested in living in a property long-term.

2) No Leaks, No Fuss

The main benefit of taking on a flat roof with GRP is in its absolute resistance to leaks.  GRP has been used to help build boats, meaning that you can be assured that it is completely and utterly waterproof – and the whole reason behind a roof is to keep the outside, outside!flat roofing for GRP

3) A GRP Flat Roof Pays For Itself

Unlike other roof types and materials that can be used, a GRP flat roof is so resilient and durable that you’ll not require the level of maintenance that you may find with tile or rubber solutions.  Inferior roofing types suffer from wear and tear as well as potential damage from weather and animals – whereas GRP is built to last and weather all storms, making it unnecessary to maintain and extra affordable for you in the cash you’ll save not hiring handymen to fix it!

4) Safety First

A Glass Reinforced Plastic flat roof is a cold installation and will therefore pose no risk to you or any roofing engineer during installation.  It’s safe to use in all weathers due to its extreme resilience, too.

5) Quick Installation

A flat roof with GRP, unlike other roofing types or materials that can be involved in such a production, can be installed extremely quickly – meaning that, instead of weeks of waiting for your roof to be fully completed and ready for you to move in and enjoy, you can normally expect your installation to be complete and ready within two days – meaning that you can really move ahead with any other household projects you may have lined up without fear that the roofing will get in the way.
