If you’re new to the roofing game, or are just starting out in looking for a replacement or renovation to an existing flat roof installation, you may not be aware of some of the pros and cons of various types of roof installation – which are the most durable, the most cost-effective, and which won’t see you looking for repairs every few weeks. You’re likely to be in the market for a strong, resistant and affordable roofing solution that solves the problem first-time – and this is why we feel that GRP roofing is ideal for anyone looking for long-lasting, low maintenance roof material that will withstand decades of weather.
GRP (or Glass Reinforced Plastic) is alternatively known as fibreglass, and is a popular choice in the roofing trade following its initial use as insulation during the 1930s. Since that time, the material has been used worldwide for hundreds of thousands of homes due to its versatile and resilient nature, and as such, GRP roofing is seen as perhaps the best standard of roof installation on the market today.
GRP roofing is popular thanks to its durable and resilient nature – not only is it hard-wearing and low-maintenance, it’s also totally waterproof – making it perfect for almost any home. Many people opt for GRP both for the instant protection they have against the elements – its weather resistance will last decades – and for its versatility in style and form. It’s laid easily in a ‘cold’ manner, meaning that it doesn’t require any specialist heat treatment or additional work, and it’s supplied in one whole membrane – meaning that there are no precarious joints or cracks where weather may likely cause any problems later on in its lifespan. It’s likely that this helps towards its famous durability and overall popularity.
GRP roofing is also very popular for its versatility in terms of colours and styles, meaning that if you are looking for resistant, tough roofing but are set on a certain style or colour scheme, you need not worry – as GRP can be produced in almost any colour you desire. For the home that needs to look good as well as stay protected, it is certainly top of the bill for many home renovators.
