Recoating Fibreglass Roofs

Can you recoat your fibreglass roof to effectively restore its look and stop leaks or potential problems?

Fibreglass, or Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP), roofs have become increasingly popular over recent years. And for good reason. When properly installed a fiberglass roof is far more hard wearing then some other flat roof coverings such as felt. It is also seamless so there is less chance of seams failing and allowing water ingress.

Typical Fibreglass Roof Problems

Over time however, GRP roofs can begin to degrade. You might see cracks appearing or small grp pinholes beginning to show through where the top layer of resin has begun to wear away. These problems are often due to improper installation – fibreglass is a great product, but it is sensitive to application and it’s easy for installers to make mistakes. They might apply the resin too quickly or not apply enough. Or they might not have measured the catalyst correctly or applied it at the wrong temperature. This is when problems start and leaks can happen. It also just doesn’t look great.

Recoating Fibreglass Roof

If your fibreglass roof is starting to show signs of wear and tear and you’re wondering if recoating fibreglass roofs is an option, the simple answer is yes – it is! There is absolutely no reason to replace your grp roof if it’s still in decent condition. And why recoat with more polyster fibreglass that is brittle and won’t absorb any movement on top of exactly the same structure underneath? What you need is a flexible, strong and long lasting coating. We’re not talking about just a fibreglass roof paint either… You need more than a fibreglass roof repair paint, you need a polyurethane coating that will restore and protect.

GRP Restoration Coating is a one-coat wonder. It really will restore your grp roof back to looking like new in just one coat. This is NOT just a fibreglass roof paint, it is a fully aliphatic, one component, polyurethane liquid membrane. This means there’s no measuring and mixing of catalysts, no primers to apply, no sealants for edges – you just clean the roof and paint it on, job done. As it’s a polyurethane it has flexibility and elongation meaning it can take roof movement. Once it’s on it will extend your grp roof for another 10 to 15 years.

If you have a few cracks or larger holes you can make patch repairs with an easy to apply Speedpatch or Sealant then just paint the GRP Restoration Coating over the top.
