Regal Rooflines have been installing fibreglass flat roofs in Kent for 20 years.
Traditionally flat roofs in Kent have been completed in felt.
Unlike felt roofing our fibreglass flat roofing solutions do not rely on bitumen and other materials to bond and join them, this makes a huge difference in terms of the potential life of your new flat roof installation.
Felt flat roofs over time give in to the elements eventually this weathering slowly destroys the roof and ultimately leads to the need for a complete re-roof.
Our flat roofs come complete with a 25 year insurance backed warranty
Fibreglass Flat Roofs Are Low Maintenance
Due to the UK climate a common problem affecting felt flat roofs is the unsightly growth of moss and algae this moss growth brought on by our inclement weather requires regular removal.
Fibreglass flat roofs do not suffer with this problem as moss and algae are simply unable to grow on fibreglass.
Another common problem suffered by felt flat roofs is blistering and cracking, these issues ultimately lead to costly maintenance bills.
Fibreglass flat roofs do not crack or blister nor are the susceptible to moss and algae, leaving you safe in the knowledge there will be no unforeseen costs, if you would like to know more contact us today.
The Installation Process
Here is an example of a flat roof in need of repair.
The original boards are removed and replaced with new 18mm T&G SmartPly®. The most important consideration is to achieve a perfectly level surface.
Pre-formed GRP trims are then installed to the perimeter of the roof.
Fibreglass joins banded and laminated.
Any remaining joins on the roof are then bandaged and laminated into place using specially formulated resins. A heavy-weight chopped strand mat is then consolidated with two coats of resin in order to laminate in-situ.
Fibreglass Flat Roofs Do Not Leak
Unlike traditional flat roofs in Kent, fibreglass roofing is a seamless one-piece installation because of this water is unable to penetrate the roof and cause leaks, this along with the fact that fibreglass flat roofs do not crack or blister enables us to offer a comprehensive 25-year guarantee.
Fibreglass flat roofing is flame retardant the surface is so durable it can be walked on.
