Fibreglass for flat or low incline roofs
Fibreglass (or Glass Reinforced Polyester) is suitable for a roof which has a low pitch and on which it’s not possible to install roof tiles. In other words, for most flat roofs or a lean-to with a low pitch.
But why fibreglass?
Traditionally, flat roofs were made with felt made up of layers of bitumen or had an asphalt surface (often a mix of asphalt and limestone). Both were great in their day, but both also came with their own problems. In particular, they could be sensitive to extreme weather, cracking and ageing hence we have so many flat roofs in poor repair.
But as technology has progressed, flat roof solutions have been developed. One of the best being a fibreglass resin – more commonly used for boats, aircraft and hot tubs!! Fibreglass is a lightweight but incredibly strong material that is totally waterproof. It doesn’t tear or deteriorate under UV light or extreme heat and will tolerate foot traffic. It’s low maintenance and lasts for years – so an all round more efficient and efficient solution.
And that means…
A brand new ROOM for you! If you’ve got a lean too or low roof pitch conservatory – whether it be polycarbonate, glass or an older felt/bitumen roof, then the chances are that you’re not getting much use out of it Or you have a concern . Unfortunately, as you no doubt know, glass can leak, causing mould and damage and a glass ceiling normally makes a conservatory either too hot or too cold. In many cases, a lean to just doesn’t get used and can become a bit of an eye sore.
But the lightweight nature of a fibreglass roof solves all these problems, add an insulated conservatory ceiling and your conservatory is transformed into a more purpose built extension.
