Help With Flat Roofing

If you have flat roof that needs repair, you’re in the right place. Below you are going to read some tips that will help you to get your flat roof back into good working order. Read through the following information to learn more about roofing techniques.

Flat Roof ContractorsYou’re going to want to hire a roofer that has experience in the field. This means that you’re going to have to hire someone that has done this kind of work quite a bit in the past. If they are new to this kind of work, then don’t hire them because they may not do that good of a job. Before you hire someone ask them about the work they have done in the past. You especially need to look for people that have done work with flat roofing so you know that they can take on your project.

Don’t try to fix a roof on your own if you don’t know what you’re doing. If you try to fix a problem and just make it worse, then you’re going to cost yourself more money. You can end up getting hurt if you fall while you’re on the roof or do something like have a power tool that malfunctions on you because you weren’t using it right. Roofing is something that takes training so you want to work with someone that knows what they are doing instead of doing the work yourself.

Cost of repair versus the cost of whole roof replacement

TPO Flat Roofing ContractorsFigure out what a good price is to pay to get help with your flat roof. If there is a lot of work that needs to be done, like a whole roof replacement, then it will of course cost you more than getting a small repair done. However, if you keep having to pay for repairs, over time they are going to cost you more than a new roof would. Think about what is going to make the most financial sense and then go that route instead of just guessing what will be best for you.

A good roofer is going to be well reviewed. You’re going to want to look online to see if you can find reviews that have been written in the recent past about a roofer. Try to find the most recent reviews so you know that they are about what you can expect from a company currently. If a roofer is new and hasn’t been reviewed, then that’s not a good sign. But, if someone has been doing roofing work a long time and doesn’t have many reviews that’s better than hiring someone with a bad reputation.

If you do feel confident enough to repair your flat roof

Flat roofing is something you need to do your research on. This is not something you should try to work on yourself if you’re not a . Take what you’ve learned above and use it to help you get your roof to a better state when all is said and done.

Fibreglass Flat Roof Repairs

Fibreglass Flat Roof Repairs

Fibreglass Roof Problems

These are a few of the most common problems which can be the causes of leaks with GRP Flat roofs. Below are just a few Fibreglass Flat Roof Repairs problems to be mindful of before repairs.

  1. Flashings: If the area where your flashings meet an adjoining wall haven’t been sealed correctly, or were sealed against a poorly cleaned wall then they may have become separated. It’s common for a small gaps to appear along the join which can then compromise the seal of the roof and make it susceptible to water run-off.
  2. Expansion & Contraction: The expanding and contracting of a fibreglass roof can cause fatigue which in turn can lead to cracks and holes appearing. When the roof was installed expansion should have been factored in. Another cause for this form of failure is when joints and trims aren’t reinforced correctly allowing for unwanted movement.

Thankfully these common causes of fibreglass roof damage are easily repaired by professionals.

What is Fibreglass Roofing?

Fibreglass is a polymer plastic matrix reinforced with glass fibres. Fibreglass, also known as glass reinforced plastic or glass resin plastic (GRP), is typically used for flat roofs, but can be used for pitch roofs as well. Fibreglass roofing uses fibreglass laminate applied over conditioned plywood rafters. The roof is then finished with a fibreglass trim instead of traditional flashing, and coated with a pre-pigmented top coat in a colour to suit your aesthetic requirements. Roofing specialists can help find the best solution for your style of roof.

How Fibreglass Is Made

Most of the materials found in fibreglass are naturally occurring. These may include silica sand, soda ash and limestone, but fibreglass gets its name from the silica sand that turns to glass when heated. The entire batch of materials is placed into a furnace where it is melted, and then it is transferred to equipment designed to convert the molten glass into fibres giving it its shape.

There are several ways to do this, including filament extrusion and spinning. Once the fibreglass itself has been created, the fibres are then added to other materials to keep them strong and impenetrable.

Fibreglass tiles

Fibreglass tiles are also quite popular across the country. Like traditional materials, they have an asphalt exterior, but while organic asphalt tiles have a wood or paper mat, fibreglass ones contain a matrix of plastic reinforced with fibres made of glass. They’re lighter than traditional asphalt, which makes them easier to install, but they don’t last quite as long and as a result we frequently receive repair requests. An advantage is that they cost less than traditional tiles or shingles, and they’re relatively simple to repair.

Benefits of Fibreglass Roofs

Fibreglass is durable and lightweight, which makes it an ideal construction material in instances when it needs to be brought up a ladder to the area being repaired. Unlike other flat roof materials, including asbestos, fibre-glass poses no health risks.

Fibreglass is also ideal for home extensions and commercial construction, and can be used not only for large roofs, but also for smaller roofs like a garden shed or animal homes. Fibreglass is robust, flexible, weather resistant, and will never corrode. Fibreglass is one of the most inexpensive roofing materials, requiring little to no maintenance and few repairs.

Costs of Fibreglass Repair

Fibreglass roofing has a life expectancy of up to 30 years +. In that time, some minor repairs may be required. Although a fibreglass roof requires almost no maintenance, the condition of the roof should be checked regularly to spot any leaks early on.

Due to fibreglass being an inexpensive material that is easy to work with, fibreglass roof repair tends to be fairly cheap, although this will depend on the severity of the damage and the labour required to fix the problem.

Fibreglass Roofing Contractors

Flat Fibreglass roofing Repairs

Fibreglass also known as GRP is a hard, plastic-like material that is laid directly on top of a new roofing deck on every installation.

It is wet laid on site, giving it a fully-bonded system which is seamless. There are no joints to fail, no laps and it is extremely tough. You can even blow fibreglass roofs with a hammer as hard as you like, there will be no damage at all. This is why our regular clients come back time after time with every new roof they need and always recommend the GRP system to anyone they speak to about their lovely new roof.

A correctly installed Fibreglass roof could last for at least 50 years with no deterioration.

The fibre-glass roof must be laid onto a dry deck in dry conditions. That can be difficult with the Irish weather, but it’s not impossible a temperature, not below 0 degrees Celsius is required for proper installation.

Fibreglass comes in any colour, you can get rated A/A+ meaning it is environmentally friendly. It is laid without the use of heat, (no fire-risk to your home or business). Most importantly it is maintenance free, if you wish, you can jet-wash the roof as often as you like to keep it looking well.

Your can walk on it, you can have railings or build a roof terrace on it, put slabs on it, put grass on it, put decking on it, the options are endless compared with other flat roof systems.
