What is Fibreglass GRP Flat Roofing?

GRP stands for Glass Reinforced Polyester, a composite material formed by strengthening plastic with fine fibres made of glass. One of the biggest strengths of choosing a GRP Fibreglass flat roof from Canova is the fact that these roofs are so durable.

Many of us have flat roofs, whether it is a garage, extension or part of the integral design of our home. For many years flat roofs have been covered using bituminous felt products. A key flaw with this system of roofing is that it relies on joints and welded seams and these are potential failure points where your roof will leak.

Where there is a seam there is potential for water to penetrate and by the time you have spotted that your flat roof is leaking, there will almost certainly be more damage than meets the eye. Even modern, high-tech rubber membrane roof coverings are fundamentally flawed as they still rely on glued or welded seams. 

A Long Lasting, GRP Flat Roof

When it comes to finding the best value in a roof, durability and long-term costs will always be an important factor. The advantage with Canova flat roofs is that there are no seams, joints or welds to provide opportunities for water to get in and for components to be damaged or weakened as we ensure we use only the highest quality flat roof materials.

The continuous surface area provides a huge benefit when it comes to finding a roof that can be relied on for many years to come. Thanks to the state of the art materials and technology utilised in these flat roofs, Canova confidently offers a 20 year product and workmanship guarantee, GRP simply does not deteriorate at the rate of felt or rubber. An added benefit to the durability of the system is that these flat roofs require little or no maintenance due to the nature of the structure. These roofs are constructed to the highest standard and quality and offer peace of mind to home owners that cannot be matched by other products.

Flat Roof Installation services

Fibreglass flat roof construction is safe, simple and effective. The finished product is both aesthetically pleasing and long lasting. Once the strong fibreglass layer is laid, a durable topcoat is rolled over the top creating a fully sealed surface. Installed correctly, water does not have the opportunity to penetrate as there are no weak points or potential failure points on the roof.

What is a GRP Roofing System?

A GRP roofing system is a flat roofing system that has been available to the general market and tradesmen for more than 30 years. It is a fully integrated seamless system where all the components are designed to work together. They offer significantly better performance and last much longer than more traditional materials available on the market.

How Long Does a GRP Roof Last?

One of the main benefits of a GRP fibreglass roof is the durability and long lifespan, when compared to more traditional roofing products, which can last for up to 30 years with the right care and maintenance. With all of our projects and completed work, we offer a 20 year guarantee – giving you complete peace of mind with your roof for years to come.

Another important factor in how long your roof lasts is how well it has been fitted by your roofing contractor. It’s important to work with a GRP specialist and we have a wide range of examples of our completed work, from happy customers!

Is GRP Good for Flat Roofs?

Fibreglass is an excellent material for both domestic and commercial roofs, mainly due to its durability and flexibility to fit roofs of all shapes and sizes. It can even be used for walkways and balconies to improve access where needed too. We offer a free quotation service, giving is chance to assess your roofing project to make sure GRP fibreglass is the best option for you. In nearly all cases it is a far superior and more cost effective option.

Can Fibreglass GRP Roofs Crack?

Fibreglass roofing will only crack if it’s not laid correctly. Ensuring the roof is prepped and laid on the right boards is an essential part of the job. The roof must be laid onto a dry deck in dry conditions at a temperature not below 5°C. If all these guidelines are followed then you should have no worries with your fibreglass roof cracking.

How Do You Clean a GRP Flat Roof?

The beauty of fibreglass roofing is that there is little to no maintenance required. However if you want to keep this looking as shiny and new as the day your roof was installed the occasional clean is required. This is a straight forward process compared to other roofing materials and can be done in a few ways:

Garden hose & pressure washers – You can use your garden hose to wash light dirt from your roof, directly from the ground. You can also use a pressure washer, but be sure not to use a hot steam setting as this can impact your roof.

Long handled mop – If access allows you can use a mop & soapy water, but be sure to be careful and not do this when directly on the roof, rather via an open widow.

Hire a professional – There are many companies, including your roof fitter, who can help maintain this for you. We’re also on hand to help with this and offer any aftercare advice too.

At Canova, value is more than price, value is also shown in the quality of our roof installations and the expert, highly professional service we continue to offer our customers.
