GRP Roofs

What is GRP roofing?

GRP stands for Glass-Fibre Reinforced Polyester and is increasingly being used for roofing. GRP roofs have become very popular over the last 15 years because they are durable, weatherproof, strong, light weight, easy to fit and UV resistant. GRP can be used on flat roofs, gable roofs as well as a hip roof which has slopes on all of its sides.

How long does a GRP roof last?

According to various studies a GRP roof has a life expectancy of approximately 40 years, which is approximately 5 times longer than a felt roof. GRP slate tiling can be used on houses, extensions, garden buildings, conservatories. GRP roofing solutions are also widely used on large commercial buildings.
