Planning to install GRP roofing in Childwall? Whether you live in this suburb of Liverpool or any other part of the country, you’d want to protect your home from damage due to leakage or seepage. GRP (glass reinforced plastic) is what used to be called fiberglass in earlier days. It’s also known as FRP (fiber reinforced plastic) and is a tough, versatile, waterproof and extremely durable material that can be used in many industries and with a range of applications. The advantage of GRP is that it can be worked to provide almost any kind of colour and finish you want. Typically, GRP products can last for decades without much maintenance. They’re even used to build vehicle and boat bodies, since they’re lightweight and can withstand continuous exposure to water and weather. Weather-proofing your roof with GRP is a smart option, especially for buildings that have flat roofs. All you need to do is ensure that the work is done in dry conditions and in temperatures above 5C. GRP roofing is also quite fast and simple enough for just two or three people to complete.
In Childwall, GRP roofing experts prefer to start work when they’re assured of a longish dry, warm spell. They strip away old topcoats, re-deck and then apply the laminate to the pre-cut sections of glass. The laminate is applied in several layers and a final top-coat is applied on the same day if possible. The roof may take a few days to fully cure and during this time, no harsh cleaning or disturbance to the structure should be there. Painting and edge trimming or other decorative effects can be carried out at this stage. The resins cure very quickly in direct sunlight and very slowly in cold conditions. However, this is a job that’s best left to roofing experts.
