GRP Roofing

Fibreglass roofing in winter

November 9, 2017 12:04 pm Published by

I would always advise you not to install a fibreglass roof in winter as it is frought with many difficulties. Adverse weather conditions, low temperatures, short working days etc. However, sometimes it has to be done. In order to insure it is done in the best possible conditions, the roof area should have waterproof cover erected prior to the final board installation. This will ensure the boards remain dry after installation and prior to the fibreglass, (GRP), being applied, which should be done as soon as possible after board installation to prevent atmospheric moisture inhibiting the bond of the GRP to the OSB3 board. The correct amount of catalyst must be added to the resin in conjunction with recommendations for...

High Quality Fibreglass Roofing

April 5, 2017 11:06 am Published by

There are two main areas of consideration when choosing who to appoint to undertake the waterproofing of your flat roof: The experience (not qualification) of the person or people conducting the work on the actual day of installation. The quality of the materials being used. Certificates of competence that may be presented to you are no indication of experience, and this is far more valuable. Anybody that is willing to pay the various material manufacturing/distribution companies for their “training” courses will be accepted onto the course and given a few hours tuition which will be woefully inadequate. It is therefore imperative that you take some time to establish the experience of the actual person or people that will be conducting...

Fortunately, there are a number of alternatives to rubber flat roofing. Proplas specialise in installing fibreglass roofing.
