What is GRP Fibreglass Roofing?

GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) fibreglass roofing is a popular choice for flat roofing systems due to its durability, weather resistance, and versatility. It is a composite material made of a plastic reinforced by fine fibers of glass, resulting in a lightweight yet strong roofing solution.

The composition of GRP fibreglass typically includes a combination of polyester resin and chopped strand matting, which is a type of reinforcement material made from glass fibers. These components are combined and cured to form a seamless, waterproof membrane that can be applied to various surfaces.

The manufacturing process of GRP fibreglass involves layering the resin and reinforcement material onto a roof deck or substrate, ensuring that each layer is properly bonded and free from air pockets. This meticulous process results in a robust and long-lasting roofing system that is ideal for both new construction and refurbishment projects.
