Why you may need a new GRP roof and didn’t yet know it

As one of the main structural pieces of your home, a roof that is durable, protects from water damage and will stand up to the elements in the long term is a must. Choosing a new roof however can be quite a daunting task when you have little to know knowledge on the area, and want something to keep you and your family protected for the future. So we’re going to detail and outline the main features of a new GRP roof and why Merlin Fibreglass Flat Roofing can provide the roofing solution for you.

So how will fibreglass roofing make an improvement over my current roofing?

A fibreglass flat roof has many advantages over the traditional (or should I say old-fashioned) roofing materials such as rubber or felt. For a start, your new GRP roofing is set to last a lot longer with most 1940’s fibreglass still around today, and a guarantee of 20 years. It’s also going to have better coverage as a fibreglass roof is laminated on and moulds to its surroundings, filling gaps, surfaces, and creating an impenetrable waterproof covering. Offering something that the other methods simply cannot. It’s also a very structurally tough roofing solution, supporting the weight of numerous people, which makes it suitable for walkways and even balconies.

I have a family and want to make sure they’re going to be safe from intruders and elements?

Well fibreglass roofing sounds right for you, as the material is resistant to objects and forces, whereas felt or rubber can be opened with just the use of a sharp blade. Keeping you and your belonging safe from anyone who thinks they can intrude; you won’t be cutting through this roofing solution. This material is also resistant to the weather in a way that the traditional roofing isn’t. When the seasons change, the contrast of temperature between Summer and Winter can lead to damage in felt and rubber that fibreglass doesn’t suffer from. In older roofing the surface tends to expand and crack through cold weather and this leads to leaks, which you definitely won’t get with your GRP fibreglass roofing.



Is fibreglass roofing practical for me though, what can I expect?

We can assure you that no extra preparation is required for this roofing and will be fitted like any other, as long as you have a good clean structure with no rot present. Which makes it all the easier for you, whilst we install your impressive new roofing that has a clean and consistent finish, in case you were wondering how it will look.

I know you’re probably thinking this all sounds very expensive, well it isn’t. This roofing costs roughly the same amount of money to install than any other roofing method on the market today, and if you think about it, you’re actually going to save money in the long run from how little maintenance these roofs need, so no need for flat roof replacements anytime soon or worries of damage

So if you’re looking for a new roofing solution, and this post has informed you on the best way to go, don’t hesitate to contact Merlin Fibreglass Flat Roofing at 0800 3118 262 for a quote today!
