Fibreglass Installation Process

Preparation

  • Boards Replaced

Firstly the old roof covering must be completely removed to ensure a smooth application. Regal Rooflines replace the existing boards in order for our contractors to proceed.

Boards Replaced
Full Boarding

OSB Boards

  • Full Boarding

It is essential for our contractors to complete this boarding process in a dry environment as timber rapidly takes on moisture. This can lead to imperfections in the joins of the roof which in the long term undermines the structure as a whole, It is also imperative that these boards are laid at the correct angles with concise, uniformed spaces between them.

Flashings

  • Flashings

To stop pooling and standing water Regal Rooflines will create a drainage channel. Sometimes this is not possible due to any one of a number of external constraints; it may be the case that a slight elevation is added to the roof in the above boarding phase.

Roof Trims

Roof Trims

  • Roof Trims

At this stage a thorough check on all works carried out up until this point is carried out. Particular focus placed on the spacing of the boards and adjoining walls. This is to ensure that the up stands and trims fitted at this point create a robust watertight seal, once satisfied all is in order Regal Rooflines will fix the Boards to the joists of the roof. This phase effectively ensures the longevity of the roof.

Taping Joins & Trims

  • Roof Trims

Up stands are secured and roof trims are in place our contractors now begin taping all joins and trims the purpose of the taping process is to proof the roof against fractures and cracking further down the line. The tape used is not ordinary tape but glass tape, Firstly a small amount of fibreglass resin (essentially the same material used in the main lamination stage) is rolled on all joins. The glass tape is then applied, once applied a further layer of resin is rolled into the glass tape.create a robust watertight seal, once satisfied all is in order Regal Rooflines will fix the Boards to the joists of the roof. This phase effectively ensures the longevity of the roof.

Lamination

Lamination

  • Lamination

Once the previously taped layer has set the main process of laminating can start. The time the taped layer takes to set is variable and dependent on the weather conditions; the conditions on the day also influence how much glass is laid in each layer or “mix” Firstly the glass must be cut to size, resin mix is then swiftly applied to the first area of the roof to be covered, the glass is then rolled on top of this mix.

The rest of the first batch of resin mix is applied to the top of the glass this is then left to set. The final step is a thorough rolling to remove trapped air or imperfections. This process is then repeated culminating in the fully installed roof.

Curing

  • Curing

The main laminate will take the best part of a morning or afternoon to cure again dependent on the weather conditions on the day. Once our contractors are satisfied the setting or curing process is complete, it is time to move on to the next stage of your fibreglass installation.
