ANSWERING YOUR QUESTONS
"WILL IT LAST A LONG TIME?"
Fibreglass won't rust like metal or rot like wood. It can't be pierced or ripped like rubber and it won't flake off like paint, so for longevity its an excellent material.
"WHY IS A FIBREGLASS ROOF BETTER THAN A FELT ROOF?"
Traditional felt roofs are not as durable or strong as fibreglass roofs. Fibreglass looks better, lasts longer and is safer to install, it requires no maintenance and is one of the most fire retardant roofing materials available. Felt roofs have seams which can often fail and let water in, a grp roof has no seams making it completely watertight.
"IS IT EXPENSIVE TO INSTALL?"
Our fibreglass linings compare very well price wise to the alternatives out there on the market, but when you factor in the longevity GPR offers and the peace of mind it gives that it won't leak, a fibreglass lining is very cost effective.
"HOW DO YOU DO IT?"
We prepare the surface to ensure a strong bond, cut the fibreglass from a roll and tailor it to fit the job, then, using a bucket and roller, wet the fibreglass mat in to place with the liquid plastic, moulding the GRP (glass reinforced plastic) to the required surface. Finally the top coat is applied, again using rollers and brushes, to leave a slick, seamless, waterproof membrane.
