Fargil UK GRP Flat Roofs present a long term solution for any flat roof installation.
A GRP flat roof offers considerable durability over a conventional flat roof, given the ingredients and application methods.
Reliable, Flexible, very strong and covering the complete flat roof, this monolithic construction means that the roof has no joints or seams. It is generally acknowledged that most water ingress problems are with systems using joints and seams.
Once installed, our GRP flat Roof will give trouble-free weatherproof service for many, many years compared to an average life expectancy of bitumen based flat roof materials. The cost benefits of such a long life system, together with the associated potential increase in property resale values, are obvious.
The glass fibre layer is formed directly onto the new deck and bonds to the decking boards to form a fully bonded flat roof. The monolithic skin or laminate contains no welds or glued joints which means no areas for water to penetrate. The entire roof surface and all the edges are formed in one continuous piece of GRP bonded to the roof deck and any associated structures. This means there are absolutely no joints to fail. All preformed details including outlets, edge trims, flashings etc are made from GRP so that there can be no difference in the rates of expansion.
GRP Flat Roofs start with a typical roof of traditional felt over timber that has reached the end of its life. We then form a completely new deck using tongue and grooved boards. These are laid to staggered joints to form a completely new decking Once the entire flat roof area is decked we apply all the detail to the new roof. Fixing trims as required to form the first part of the monolithic GRP Flat Roof system. Once all the trims are in place each joint is carefully laminated with GRP 450gm bandage to provide additional structural strength at all joints and roof detail.
GRP Flat Roofs use a specially formulated roofing resin developed to provide a flexible high performance covering that will outperform others on the market. The roof is finally sealed with a further coating of polyester topcoat. This is pigmented to improve both the final appearance of the flat roof and to seal the fibres in the surface against any water ingress. The topcoat can be pigmented in any colour, although we recommend a light grey colour to diminish thermal gain. The topcoat will also stop any UV transmission into the body of the GRP layer and allows additional coatings to be applied to provide a choice of finished textures.
Compared to lead, GRP Flat Roof systems are easily and economically laid, are damage resistant and, since they have no scrap value, are not prone to vandalism.
