It is used for both domestic and commercial properties and is designed to last a long time, in many cases up to 30 or 40 years. In fact, we expect our own Topseal flat roof system to literally last a lifetime.
If you are searching for an option that is hardy, effective and totally waterproof but looks great too, GRP fibreglass roofing should be at the top of your list. It’s important to consider which product you are going to use and what guarantees they provide. The last thing you want is a fibreglass roof that needs to be replaced after just a few years.
If you’re an installer or builder, finding the right product to offer customers is essential when it comes to roofing. You need to be able to trust it and have confidence that it will last as long as the manufacturer says it will.
The Topseal GRP Fibreglass Roof System ticks all the boxes when it comes to the latest technology and ease of installation. It’s also one of the most durable installations on the market.
Here we take a closer look at the benefits of fibreglass roofing and why Topseal is the best product out there at the moment.
What is a Fibreglass Roof?
GRP is a fibreglass roof and not just a composite material found in most fibreglass roofs. This kind of system has been around for quite a few decades but has increased in popularity over the last few years with readily available products such as Topseal GRP fibreglass roof systems.
Easy to install and long-lasting, fibreglass roofs can be used for a variety of different types of installation. The standard one is for a flat roof area on your home which you want renewed.
Many modern domestic builds have GRP fibreglass roofs included at the construction stage but older buildings might have different types of roofing. In some cases, it may just be that the existing fibreglass roof has reached the end of its natural life and is beginning to leak or has cracked. The good news is this is fairly easy to resolve.
Fibreglass roofs are more often found on domestic buildings, however over recent years many organisations have understood the significant benefits Topseal roofing can provide.
Fortunately, a fibreglass roof is a pretty strong structure. Nowadays it’s not just used as utility space for business properties but can be redefined and transformed in many different ways. If you have a balcony or communal area, for example, if you own a restaurant, a fibreglass roof can be combined with other structures such as walkways and even roof gardens.
Can You Put a Fibreglass Roof In Yourself?
There are off the shelf fibreglass roof kits on the market and if you have building experience it may be possible to install something like a GRP fibreglass roof.
The trouble is that it usually takes more than a little expertise, particularly for large areas, to get it absolutely right. You are likely to miss out on any warranty or cover if you install the roof system yourself and you haven’t had the appropriate training or certification. Visit our training page to find out more about courses we have available.
The good news is that a fibreglass roof is a cost-effective solution and should last anywhere up to 30 years without significant deterioration. It’s important, however, to use the right product along with the appropriate resins and topcoats.
All our Topseal GRP fibreglass roof installers have been properly trained and approved before they are allowed to use our products. That’s how we maintain standards, wherever installers are based in the UK.
What is a Topseal GRP Fibreglass Roof?
When it comes to fibreglass roof technology, we like to think we’re the experts. At Topseal, we’ve more than 30 years experience delivering high-quality flat fibreglass roof systems for both commercial and domestic customers.
While GRP roofing systems have been around since the 1930s, the products on the market have constantly been updated over the years to be more efficient, easier to lay and certainly more durable. We like to think that we’ve contributed a lot to these kinds of development over the last three decades and think that our Topseal fibreglass roof systems are the best in the industry.
We offer different types of Topseal products for a range of potential projects. For example, if you are planning to create a walkway for your business or home, the Topseal HD System is the perfect choice. This also comes with our 25-year materials guarantee to give you complete peace of mind.
One of the most important things about our Topseal GRP Fibreglass Roof Systems is that they are applied cold and the curing rate is quick compared to other products on the market. That means installation can be carried out relatively quickly. If you are using the area as a walkway it will soon be ready even for heavy foot traffic.
Unlike many other products on the market, Topseal like to ensure that all installers of our fibreglass roof products have been properly trained and really understand what they are doing. Not only are our products BBA certified but potential installers go through an intensive training programme to ensure they have the right skills and know-how to get the best results for their customers.
Whether they are working on a domestic property and a small flat roof space or handling something bigger like a commercial building or high rise, you can be sure that all our approved installers are fit to do the job at hand.
