How Do I apply It?
Simply clean your fibreglass roof, make sure there are no protruding glass fibres and apply a layer of our GRP Roof Restoration Coat. On the areas you wish to reinforce roll the Glassmat into the coating and using your roller draw more of the coating through to ensure it is thoroughly embedded. Work it lightly in then apply more coating over the top (you can do this when you’re coating the rest of the roof)- you need to make sure it is fully covered and there are no pinholes showing. If you have detailed areas you need to mould the Glassmat around then allow a few minutes after you’ve embedded it in the coating for the solvent in the Glassmat to start to dissolve as you’ll be able to mould it more easily. Don’t overwork the Glassmat or you might pull up the shreds of fibreglass and it’s harder to get a smooth finish.
For a nice clean finish we recommend you tape around the edges, apply the coating then remove the tape as soon as the coating starts to get tacky.

This product has definitely done the job, I have had several roofers trying to fix leak with no success, after some heavy rain yesterday my roof is now watertight. It a brilliant product!

The product is superb, by far the best I have ever used and I have used many different coatings over the years.
