Fibreglass is the ideal material for weatherproofing flat roofs laid with plywood, OSB board or HDF board. It has a 30-year history of successful use.
The finished, watertight grey topcoat surface is smooth and easy to clean and maintain. The roofing system has been fire tested to BS 476 pt 3 external fire exposure roof test and achieved an EXT.F.AB rating.
The most important element to fibreglass roofing is the materials. At Fibreglass Direct we only supply the highest quality materials.
Included in our kits are the following important materials that other suppliers may not include for:
- Flexible Resin. This helps the roof to withstand thermal expansion/contraction variations, slight movement in roof flexing due to people walking on it and slight movement in roof alignment due to settling.
- Fire Resistance Top Coat to BS 76 Part 3.
We have given some extra material in each roofing kit to allow for cutting, overlapping and bandaging of joints. The ratio of resin is 1.5kg and 0.6kg of Topcoat per square metre.
You may also require glass bandage roll and acetone to complement your roofing kit.
