What is it?
GRP stands for ‘glass reinforced plastic’, the polymer glass resin is heated up and then applied to the pre-installed plywood rooftop surface. When the glass reinforced plastic then dries it turns incredibly hard, making it the best flat roofing solution due to its completely waterproof properties and high resistance to all weather conditions.
What’s the history of GRP Fibreglass?
Fibreglass was first formally discovered in the late 1940’s and then went on to be used in the 1950’s and 60’s for a wide range of applications because of its corrosive-proof properties. Allied with its crystal-like strength, high-sheen and seamless appearance, it soon proved to be invaluable for boat building.
The uses for glass reinforced plastic have since widened to the extent that it now used as the standard material when fabricating small crafts, liquid tanks, cladding panels for buildings, roof light instalments and of course, high performance waterproof coatings for flat and even pitched roofs.
Since the mid 2000’s, a rapid growth has become apparent within the UK roofing industry as more and more people realise the heard-wearing and cost effective benefits of GRP Fibreglass roofing.

Caring for your GRP Fibreglass Roof – Aftercare
Although your new GRP roof is designed to be maintenance free, you may decide to wash it occasionally to maintain that ‘as new’ appearance.
If it is safe to do so, the most feasible way to clean your GRP Fibreglass Flat Roof is by using a mop and bucket with warm soapy water, or cold water mixed with bleach.
Alternatively, you can use a long handled brush combined with your garden hose if the roof has not been cleaned for a long period and has accumulated some hard to move stains.
If you have one, another method is to use a pressure washer, but we would recommend that you do not use a hot steam pressure washer, because at certain high temperatures this can cause the plastic polymers to warp or deform slightly.
If you’ve had any fibreglass steps, balconies or walkways installed, again a stiff brush with a garden hose, or a pressure washer, are both ideal ways for removing algae, mould, mud and dirt from the textured non-slip finish.
