roofing


is when a more lasting solution would offer better value. In the past, building owners and property managers had been reluctant


to have a flat roof completely replaced as it would mean that the building could not be used while the work was being carried out, causing a great deal of inconvenience for residents. However, latest GRP roof coverings systems allow the building to remain fully operational, because the GRP system is installed over the existing substrate. If the refurbishment works fall under Part L of the Building Regulations, some GRP systems can allow you to upgrade the warm roof properties by installing the system directly onto insulation. Recently there has been growth in demand for GRP as a replacement


roofing material as local authorities and landlords have recognised how it provides a long-term, low-maintenance, durable, lightweight solution. The aesthetics of GRP flat roof coverings also add to their appeal. These


are often available in a choice of colours and finishes, including simulated lead and copper, enabling specifiers to retain the appearance of a lead or copper roof without the associated expense or risk of theft.


Safety


Flat refurbishment GRP roof coverings offer safety benefits, too. These single-ply membranes remove the need for hot works as part of helping contractors and building owners to meet ever more stringent health and safety requirements on site. The new generation of GRP flat roof refurbishment systems are set to change perceptions of flat roofs. And, with a growing market for flat roof refurbishments, this means that building owners can be assured of a much lower maintenance roof covering that offers better weather protection and provides a more durable system.


For building owners that are seeking a more cost-effective, long-term solution for their existing flat roof, GRP refurbishment systems are an attractive option as a real alternative to the constant repair and maintenance of flat roofs.
