GRP Roofing, also known as fibreglass roofing or glass reinforced plastic, has been used extensively over the whole of the United Kingdom for many years. The material is seamless and was first used for the hulls of boats; it is a fantastic technique to produce a smooth, level surface that is capable of withstanding even the worst weather that the United Kingdom has to offer. Because of this, a significant number of our craftsmen have recently begun using solutions such as Cure It. There are a lot of reasons why GRP has been more popular throughout the years, and there are even more reasons why it is continuing to get more popular even now. The process of installing a roof made of fibreglass entails drenching successive layers of glass mat on top of the structure.
Your roof, after it has fully cured, should have strength and provide a continuous barrier that is watertight all the way over the surface of the roof.
The industry standard for a roof with no footfall is one layer of 450g glass mat; for places with medium traffic, 600g glass mat should be used; for balconies or areas with strong footfall, 900g glass mat or two layers of 450g glass mat should be used. After the resin has reached its final hardened state, the application of the Roofing Topcoat may begin.
This not only provides some colour to the roof, but it also serves as a tack-free sealer to keep the fibreglass below from becoming loose.
We strongly suggest using a topcoat that is non-slip in the event that it will be necessary to walk on the roof when the construction is complete.
To obtain the desired level of fire resistance, the topcoat should be applied at a rate of 0.8 kilogrammes per square metre.After curing, the roof will have a continuous surface and will be watertight. In addition to that, it will need almost little maintenance. Fiberglass, in contrast to other materials used for roofing, does not decompose, emit odours, and is far less prone to collect organic moss. In the event that it is necessary, the roof may be swept, mopped, or cleaned with the hose with relative ease.
Advantages of choosing GRP
Safer Installations: GRP Roofing does not need expensive gear, and in most situations, it does not even require heat equipment, which results in safer installations and a lower chance of accidents on the job site.
Resistance to Wear and Tear:
Once they have been properly constructed, the majority of fibreglass roofs have a lifespan of twenty years built into their design.
Choose the appropriate trim for the roof construction from among the available options. The materials are very simple to cut to fit the contours of the roof.
Waterproof: Contains no seams
Protected against the effects of the elements: Waterproof finishing topcoat
Simple in both its repair and its maintenance: Brush or hose off the finished roof in order to keep it clean.
