What are GRP fibreglass roofs used for?

In a world of modern roofing alternatives, GRP fibreglass leads the way. This contemporary system stands out for its remarkable versatility, durability and aesthetic potential, used for various applications across the roofing industry.

Here are some of the places GRP fibreglass roofs are typically installed.

Old roof upgrades

For many people, upgrading an ageing roof ensures their property remains watertight. GRP fibreglass offers an excellent solution, especially if you’ve had problems with the old material or you’re paying out for a lot of felt roof maintenance. This type of system can sometimes be installed directly over existing roofs, reducing disruption. Request a survey to see if your roof is suitable for a fibreglass upgrade.

New residential roofs

GRP fibreglass roofs are often used for residential properties, particularly for flat or low-sloped roofs like extensions, porches or garages. They provide a seamless and waterproof option, protecting homes from recurring leaks and interior water damage.

Commercial roofing

Fibreglass roofing excels in demanding environments, and commercial premises are often exposed to the elements and higher foot traffic, especially if they’re supporting extra weight like air conditioning equipment and signs. Thanks to their durable nature and impressive lifespan, GRP fibreglass roofs are often chosen for commercial buildings, such as offices, warehouses, cafés and shops.

Balconies and roof terraces

GRP fibreglass is also a good choice for waterproofing balconies and roof terraces. Its seamless application protects against moisture ingress, preventing damage to underlying structures and interiors. Whether it’s balconies of an apartment building or a sunny roof terrace, GRP fibreglass creates functional and inviting outdoor spaces. If you’d like this option, a roofer will need to assess how predicted foot traffic will impact the design, and they may suggest heavy duty matting, thicker sheets and non-slip top surfaces.

Roof gardens

The popular trend of creating rooftop gardens and green spaces within a property creates unique challenges when choosing a suitable roofing material. GRP fibreglass offers a lightweight yet robust solution that can support the weight of vegetation and landscaping features. Its waterproof nature stops moisture from seeping into the underlying structure, ensuring the building maintains its structural integrity.

Architectural roofs

GRP fibreglass roofs provide architects with a versatile option to bring their designs to life. Whether it’s sculptural forms, domes or decorative geometric structures, fibreglass can be moulded into the most ambitious shapes. Whether it’s an intricate design or something bolder, speak to a GRP fibreglass roofing expert to see how it can work for you.
