Benefits of GRP Roofing
What are the main benefits of GRP roofing?
GRP has a number of benefits compared to traditional roofing products, especially for flat roofing. There are a number of health & safety benefits from installing a GRP roofing system because GRP products are cold laid and therefore not require any form of heat treatment, helping to protect installers and the general public. As GRP roofing systems are cold-applied they are not subject to the same prohibitive insurance premiums levied at installers using hot-works. Unlike traditional flat roofing systems, GRP flat roofs are extremely durable and completely waterproof, plus they can be finished in any wide range of colours and include options such as nonslip finishes. The entire area on a GRP roof is encapsulated into one single continuous GRP membrane and there are no seams joints or welds. It is also completely UV resistant.
GRP roofing systems are also highly adaptable allowing conversion of the roof area to include features such as balconies or walkways within the roof area. Special features such as roof lights can also be included within a GRP roofing system. GRP roofing systems can also be used instead of pitched roofs or to make special features. The major benefit of GRP roofing comes from the fact that a high-quality GRP roofing system which is installed correctly should remain leak-free for life.
The roofing system that has the potential to outlast the structure it is protecting. We have found this to be a proven system with roofs dating back 35 years. These roofs are as good today as when they were first applied. This proved to us the longevity of the system and we are confident this product should last a lifetime. The application is also straight forward and easy to install in every situation we have found.
