Also known as glass reinforced plastic or fibreglass roofing, GRP is a cutting-edge solution for flat-roof structures. It consists of a resin with glass strands for reinforcement. Although the resin starts out as a liquid, our roofers apply a catalyst which begins a curing process. This transforms the liquid into a solid over a short period of time.
Be it in Woking or any other Surrey location, the resulting roof has exceptional strength and resilience. In addition, GRP flat roofing has an incredible strength-to-weight ratio. This means we can use less material to deliver the strength properties you require, including roofs with foot traffic.
As a cold-application material, GRP roofing has a safe and simple installation process. First, we install all relevant edge and drip trims. Then we apply a layer of the catalysed resin to a premium-quality, completely dry roofing deck (an OSB board). Next, we lay fibreglass matting on top of this, followed by another layer of the catalysed resin.
When cured, our roofers apply a fire-retardant topcoat resin that provides complete weatherproofing while achieving a more attractive finish.
Northwood Roofing Contractors also performs felt roofing installations throughout Woking and Surrey.
In addition to the ease and safety of the application, long-term weatherproofing and strength already mentioned, GRP roofing provides an array of other benefits.
Like all reputable roofers, Northwood Roofing Contractors guarantees our GRP flat roofing in Woking and the surrounding areas for 10 years. However, with a proactive, consistent maintenance plan, they can last in excess of 20 years, making them a brilliant long-term property investment.
