Fibreglass Roof Kits are supplied complete with all the materials and tools needed to cover the area required with 1 layer of 450g/m² glass fibre mat and 1 layer of grey pigmented topcoat.  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.

In this instance, a fibreglass roof kit may be used to complete the repair. The first step would be to sand back the exisiting surface to expose the fibreglass and then clean with acetone. Measure the amount of fibreglass mat you will need. Cut your new fibreglass mat into strips of an appropriate width for covering over the cracks. Ensure there is an overlap of 50mm either side of the crack. Apply a wet coat of resin to the surface and bed down the new matting. Ensure the glass is completely wet through with resin (it will go transparent). Taking a paddle roller, consolidate the glass and resin ensuring that matting is wet through and well consolidated to surface. There should be no trapped air. Allow to cure. Once cured (min 3 hours), sand back with 80 grit sandpaper to key surface and clean with acetone. Mix topcoat with catalyst and apply. Allow to... Read more

If your flat roof is starting to pond, fear not! In some instances, it may be possible to sand back the existing layer and apply a layer of bodyfiller. The bodyfiller will help to raise the area where the water is pooling and aid water run-off. Once, the bodyfiller has been applied, cured and sanded to suit you will need to wipe the area down with Acetone to remove any contaminants. You may then re-apply the resin, matting and topcoat to ensure your GRP Roof remains watertight.

In short, no. The deck would have to be sanded back to the fresh timber and wiped down with Acetone prior to any fibreglass application.

Yes, a Fibreglass Roof can be walked on. Depending on the volume of foot traffic expected for the roof to take, this will determine the weight of matting that should be used in the construction of the roof. A roof with little to no foot traffic expected would suit 1 layer of 450g matting, a moderate level of foot traffic should use 1 layer of 600g matting and a balcony or a roof with regular foot traffic should use 2 layers of 450g matting. A non-slip Topcoat is also highly recommended for areas with foot traffic... Read more

Quite simply put, it’s down to the quality of the materials. Our Fibreglass Roof Kits have been sold for 30 years throughout the UK and Ireland. We have only ever bought from trusted composite manufacturers who supply material that we have rigorously tested. What is contained in the Fibreglass Roof Kits? In our Roof Kits, you will never find a re-blended resin. This is often supplied by other companies in a bid to lower prices. As we cannot guarantee the quality for such a critical project, we offer a Lloyd’s Approved, a certified resin in our Standard Fibreglass Roof Kits and a Premium Flex Roofing Resin in our Premium Fibreglass Roof Kits. Our Premium Kits are also supplied with a Fire-Retardant Roofing Topcoat for additional peace of mind. This is particularly important for residential roofing applications or structures that will house hazardous materials. The certificate for this fire retardancy testing is available to view on our website. In addition to the quality of the materials supplied, an additional point to note is the quantity we supply. At FibreGlassDirect we offer 1.5kg of resin per square metre in our 450g Fibreglass Roofing Kits to allow for soakage into OSB Boards. We offer 2kg per square metre in our 600g Fibreglass Roof Kits to allow to soakage too. Topcoat for both options (450g & 600g) topcoat is supplied at 0.6kg per square metre, allowing for plenty of coverage. The only thing not allocated in our kits are Fibreglass Roof Trims, Glass Bandage Roll and Acetone. We have left these out as to not increase the price of the kits unnecessarily. Trims are entirely dependant on the shape and size of the roof and will, therefore, vary quite a lot. Acetone is something we do supply on FibreGlassDirect but is not directly needed by every customer so we have left this as an optional extra.

Unfortunately, you cannot apply the Flex (or any Polyester Resin) directly to the Bitumen Roof. This type of Polyester Resin will not adhere to Bitumen. The Roof would need to be stripped back and applied to OSB3 Board.
