GRP (glass reinforced plastic) is the technical name for what most people call (fibreglass). GRP was first developed in 1938 mainly for use as a form of insulation, GRP is extremely tough and durable making it today’s first choice material for many different applications across a wide range of industries. GRP is sometimes referred to as FRP (fibre reinforced polymer) GRP is completely waterproof, extremely strong and versatile which makes it the ideal material for uses like flat roofing systems. GRP can be finished in a number of different ways depending on the application’s requirements, it can also be finished in a variety of different colours. It is for all these reasons that GRP is now replacing older traditional roofing systems.
If you have any concerns about how long your GRP flat roof will last, then you need not worry.There are still many of the first GRP applications from the 1940’s still in use today. GRP has been subjected to many tough tests over the years and the findings indicate that GRP should have a life expectancy of around 50 years. The tests revealed no deterioration in the material or performance of the application throughout the period of the tests. One excellent example of the longevity of GRP is it’s use in boats, even when used under water it can last a lifetime.When you make a comparison with traditional flat roof materials GRP has a number of advantages. GRP flat roofs are low risk to install because it is cold application as opposed to the high risk hot application process of traditional flat roofs. GRP flat roofs are totally waterproof and extremely durable. The entire GRP flat roof area is encapsulated into one continuous GRP membrane being devoid of joints and seams. GRP is also absolutely UV resistant. The main factor that makes GRP the first choice for flat roofs is that when correctly installed by skilled tradesmen it should be free from leaks for life.GRP is able to withstand extremes of temperature and weather conditions, performing extremely well in all weather conditions including the strongest of winds due to it being bonded to the base boards. GRP flat roofs will remain intact and waterproof no matter what mother nature throws at them.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.
