In most cases, fibreglass roofing is best suited to smaller projects such as sheds, pipes and tanks. This is owed to the lightweight nature of the fibreglass, which has its own benefits but doesn’t make it a good solution for large roofing projects.
Typical fibreglass roofing
Even though it’s more commonly used for smaller roofing projects, that doesn’t mean that the strength of the material is diminished. In truth, fibreglass roofs have the ability to withstand damage from not only the weather, but from chemicals too.
The durability of the product is incredible. To give you an idea of the longevity, it’s a reasonable expectation that a fibreglass roof can last for up to 50 years – with little to no maintenance. When you factor in the relatively low manufacturing cost and the fact that fibreglass will never corrode, you’re left with a product that has deep industrial value.
Our fibreglass roofing experts will explain the installation process in-depth as it can be quite involved. There’s a general process that involves stripping the old roof, applying decking, lamination and the application of a protective top coat. What’s important is that we have a full and thorough appreciation for the optimal installation process, in addition to the weather conditions.
