What are Fibreglass roof systems?
Fiberglass roofs are made up of polyester resin and chopped strand mat glass fibres, which are mixed together to form a laminate. Fibreglass has become one of the most popular forms of flat roofing systems because it is not only a strong material but doesn’t add too much extra weight to the structure.
While it has been around in one form or another since the 40s and 50s, the modern version is far superior and used throughout the construction industry.
Advantages of Fibreglass Roofing
There are numerous advantages to Fibreglass roofing systems which explain their rising popularity in Irish construction. These are the main reasons why so many people are opting for fibreglass roofing solutions:
- Durability: Fiberglass roofing systems have a reputation for their strength and durability which is one of the main reasons they are used. If you follow the correct guidelines or hire a professional company who will install the material correctly, your roof will remain in place without problems for years to come.
- Weight: It is a great option for lightweight and green roofs. If other materials are too heavy for a structure then fibreglass will not only offer similar levels of protection, it also works well on more complex roof shapes.
- No Joints: As the material is in liquid form it also means there are no joins or seams left on the roof surface after installation. This creates a smooth finish that other forms of roofing systems struggle to match.
- Aesthetics: Fibreglass comes in a wide range of colours which provides a great level of choice for property owners. If you have a specific colour scheme on the property you’re looking to match against, this is likely to be possible.
