Fibreglass (GRP) Roofing Specialists.

Fibreglass (Glass Reinforced Plastic) is a versatile and reliable system making it ideal for flat roofing. GRP has been around for any years in other fields, but has really taken the roofing market by storm within the last 5 years. We are trained and approved installers of GRP systems. Manufacturers such as Cure-it & Scott Bader CrysticRoof claim to have tested their products vigorously and estimate the life expectancy of a roof installed by a qualified installer to be 50 years! Glass Reinforced Plastic is perfect for roofing, given its properties when faced with water. This has been demonstrated over many years with boat manufacturers choosing to use GRP.

Another great feature of GRP is that the entire roof area is encapsulated into one roof covering, and although laps in the 1m wide matting can be seen from close up, the matting is worked into the sheets surrounding it, creating the mentioned 'one roof covering'. Because of this (and many other points) it is recommended that you choose a qualified & manufacturer approved installer. For example, roofs over 50m2 would be too large to be 'one continuos roof' due to complications that would arise with expansion. A qualified installer would know this and split the roof into two sections using a finishing trim of the clients choice. Expansion is a big deal with GRP roofing and we are experts in this field. Partly through training, but more so through experienced aimed on the hundreds of projects we have completed.

GRP can also be used for terraces, balconies or other areas that will endure foot traffic. Slate granules can be mixed with the final (top) coat creating a non-slip finish that conforms to building regulations. 

GRP is lightweight compared to there systems such as felt. 

The top coat can also be re-applied relatively easily if the finish suffers some colour fading over the years. The existing finish would be cleaned & 'rubbed down' with acetone and the new 'top coat' applied over the existing roof. 

The system offers the benefits of an aesthetically pleasing finish along side reliability and a lengthly guarantee. Most Fibreglass projects are guaranteed for 20 years, making it one of the most reliable and cost effective systems you can choose. The versatility of the system eliminates the need for clumsy felt patches of unsightly corner details & delivers a sharp finish to what would otherwise be a difficult area of your home to smarten up. The system consists of a new deck (OSB wood sheets), one layer of GRP matting installed with resin & a topcoat, usually in dark grey finish.

Some reasons to choose GRP for your flat roof might include:

  • Lengthly guarantee
  • Cold applied (so not hot/flame works)
  • Low maintenance
  • Fire retardant 
  • Lightweight system
  • Non-slip finish available for foot-traffic areas
  • Choice of colours (*may incur additional costs)
  • Aesthetically pleasing roof finish
  • Flexible system, allowing installation in otherwise difficult spaces
  • New deck with all installations
  • Resistant to solar damage
  • Options with regards to insulation
  • Pre formed GRP finishing trims (eliminating the threat of lead theft)

Drone Inspection Service Now Available - May 2016

For those hard to reach areas, we now offer a professional drone service. We have invested in a drone with 4k camera capabilities, meaning no scaffolding is required just to inspect your property. This service is used 'where necessary', and is included in our free estimates.

The Move Into Liquid (Rubber) Roofing - January 2016

We have now entered the arena of liquid flat roofing overlay coverings. After our training, our first project was a less-than-modest 550m2 roof in Oxted, Surrey. The project went very well, and has cured a historically troublesome roof of any further issues. These systems are more cost effective than renewal & offer very long guarantees.
