In January, 1st Active Roofing carried out a straightforward pair of GRP fibreglass, flat roof replacements, on side by side buildings in Bramley, Rotherham.
First, we prepared the roofs by stripping off the existing coverings of old, built up felt and chipboard. We stripped the roofs back to their joists and re-boarded them with 18mm OSB boarding, screwed directly into the joists.
We then fitted PVC fascia boards to the outer edges and GRP fibreglass trims. We covered the boarded areas with fibre matting and sealed it with fibreglass resin, using a special tool to rub it into the matting.
After applying a second layer of GRP fibreglass resin, and waiting until it was set, we finished the roofs off with a top coat of colour resin paint; in this case, a dark grey.
