WHAT WE DO

Glassfibre canaopy by Hughes Flat Roofs.

 

GRP (fibreglass roof covering).

"Fiberglass" was originally a trade name; in the UK the material is still often referred to as 'fibreglass'. Because of this the generic term 'glassfibre' is often used in the UK. Sometimes the process is called 'GRP' - Glassfibre Reinforced Plastic.

The installation involves laying overlapping mats of fine woven strands of glass which are flexible until polyster resin is added. Once the resin has set, the resulting laminated structure is hard, durable and waterproof but sufficiently flexible to withstand the stresses of thermal expansion and contraction caused by extremes of weather.

GRP will withstand whatever the British weather can throw at it.

We use a GRP formulated especially for flat roofs. The materials are laid in situ on to new external grade timber decking. Four layers of polyester and reinforcement matting are bonded together to give a single smooth, laminated structure free from any joints.

A continuous layer is created from one end of the roof to the other. The drape and flow characteristics of the materials while liquid ensures that steps, upstands, flashings, rooflights, pipes, gullies, gutters, etc. can be incorporated in a seamless covering.

GRP is available in a wide range of colours, is maintenance free and can be walked on without damage. For walkways and patios we recommend the addition of our ant-slip textured top coating.
