Fibreglass is the perfect material for flat roofs and far superior to most other membranes available – it is completely watertight, with no seals or joins where water might be able to penetrate. Fibreglass has been used to build boats and roofs for over 60 years – the material is so durable that those boats and roofs are still in use today.
Proplas fibreglass roofs all come with a 25 year guarantee so you can rest assured that your flat roof will last at least two decades, and very likely far longer with no maintenance and no need to repair.
Fibreglass is widely used in industrial and commercial applications – the system is cold applied throughout the year with no need for heat or flames. The Fibreglass laminate can be made to go off (harden) very quickly with the correct addition of catalyst to suit the ambient temperature, thus providing a watertight cover within minutes. Once the coloured top coat is applied over the fibreglass laminate it is totally waterproof and UV stable, which makes it faster to install than the majority of liquid systems and coatings.
Fibreglass roofs do not require maintenance, once in a while you can clean with a warm water soapy solution with a soft broom to restore its original good looks, which significantly cuts down on ongoing costs. Businesses can even choose a roofing colour that reflects their brand or logo.
Fibreglass roofing can be installed on new builds or used to replace felt, lead, or bitumen roofs. The material is incredibly flexible and resilient, making it the ideal choice for a range of domestic roofing types including house extensions, garages, parapet walls, orangeries, and conservatories.
Homeowners can rest assured that their roof will last at least 25 years, with no need to maintain or replace their roof in that time.
Balconies & Stairs
The flexibility and durability of fibreglass means that you can use it for more than just roofing. If you have a balcony or external stairs, adding a fibreglass coating ensures that your interior remains dry and comfortable without the need for ongoing repairs, maintenance, or replacements.
Over the last 60 years, fibreglass has proven itself as the best material for containing or excluding water – it has been used on boats, water tanks, and wind turbines the world over. The technology has been specially adapted for both commercial and domestic roofing to give you a perfect, smooth finish every time. Or a very tough grit can be added should you require.
