GRP as a product has been around for over 30-years in the roofing industry, this proves that the system has stood the test of time. As the years have gone on the system has ‘got better with time’, with a lot of the modern roof systems becoming more high-tech. Previous small faults within a GRP roofing system have been ‘ironed out’ and todays GRP roofs are more robust and highly flexible.
The resins are now of high quality and with the roof trims/flashings allowing for structural movement they all need the modern building requirements. GRP has very little if not any risk at all of frost damage, with a high fire rating this product is great for new refurbishment properties. Nearly all GRP manufactures system come with a (BBA) certification, this means that the guarantees on the product have been independently tested by the ‘British Board Association ‘for products.
For little extra cost than a traditional torch-on felt system that typically costs 10-15 years GRP roofs far exceed these products. A few considerations must be taken into the cost.
1. Size of roof
2. Design Build up (i.e. Insulation)
3. Specification 15-40-year guarantee
4. Roof or walkway design
5. Ease of access to roof area
With these few small considerations and that GRP lasts up to 50-years these points make the GRP roof system a lot more appealing then others. With the global liquid ‘Cold applied’ roofing products scale up by 30% in the last 3-5 years this also indicated that cold liquid base roofing products are on the rise.
The finished product can with stand more shock impact then any other product on the market even more than mastic asphalt, this is a wise choice of roofing product if you have a highly foot trafficked site that is live with a lot of other trades working off of the roof space. Once all the building works are complete the GRP can be washed down and then a topcoat finish added, and a great looking finish achieved.
With all this considered I’m sure you’ll agree GRP is here to stay!
