Fibreglass Flat Roofing Installations & Repairs.

What is GRP?
Fibreglass also called glass-reinforced plastic/polyester, is a fibre reinforced polymer made of a plastic matrix reinforced by fine fibres of glass.

Fibreglass is a lightweight,

extremely strong,

robust material.

Its bulk strength and weight properties are also very favourable when compared to metals, and it can be easily formed using molding processes.

 

Thompsons Roofing & Fascias can lay a single sheet of rubber cover over your entire flat roof.

EPDM rubberised roofing is widely used and a popular product to install.

It comes on cut-to-measure rolls with its own flashing systems.

It is usually bonded to the substrate with adhesive.

should last at least 30 years.

Firestone, the tyre manufacturer, is the number one supplier.

Replacing a Flat Roof:
Flat roof products and techniques are much better these days and longer deserve the bad reputation that they had previously.

Modern versions are much less likely to leak and better insulated than ever before.

If your home does have a poorly fitted flat roof, it is replacement will probably bet much more cost effective in the long run, than repair. Call us today, we can replace your flat roof.

Torch-on felt:

Applied hot in two or three layers, it remains potentially the cheapest covering but there are several different grades you can specify.

The best felt systems are now comparable with any of the alternatives but cost just as much.

Torch-on felt still has its admirers.

Although it’s a cheaper product, it is built up in layers and this gives a more robust finish, more suitable for light foot traffic. And the fact that it is applied hot makes it easier to form around penetrations and corners.

RUBBER COVER ROOFING

Call us if you need to ugrade your flat roof to:

Firestone RubberCover™

We ensure that EPDM membranes are always fully adhered to the substrate.

We apply Bonding Adhesive both to the membrane and the substrate.

Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes are available in large, seamless sheets, so that most small residential roofs can be covered with one single sheet.

Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes can be installed on both new and existing roofs.

The membranes can overlay virtually any old roof, provided the roof decking is sound and the existing structure can carry the load of the new roofing system.
