GRP roofing kits come with everything you’d need to install a complete GRP roofing system on a flat or low-pitched roof. Glass Reinforced Polyester, also known as Fibreglass, is a fantastic roofing material thanks to its durability and decades long lifespan. Fibreglass roofing systems are becoming increasingly popular among homeowners and tradespeople alike thanks to the seamless, beautiful finish they offer for a reasonable price. Our range also includes the full complement of GRP Trims.
When installed correctly, a GRP roofing kit will produce a remarkably clean finish and a roof that will last for up to thirty years with minimal maintenance required. Fibreglass roofs are virtually immune to common weather conditions such as frost, intense heat, and heavy rain thanks to the sturdiness of GRP as well as the fact that they feature no seams which can become weak points in traditional felt flat roofs.
We’re proud to work with leading manufacturers of fibreglass roofing kits such as F1 GRP. F1 has been a leading British manufacturer of GRP roofing solutions for over thirty years. They provide complete flat roofing systems that are the result of decades of experience in top-quality engineering.

What is GRP Fibreglass Roofing?
GRP or Glass Reinforced Polyester, also known as Fibreglass is an incredibly popular flat roofing material. It is a composite material manufactured by combining sturdy plastic with fine glass fibres to create an incredibly durable, long-lasting roofing material. GRP Fibreglass Roofing is used by tradespeople and homeowners right across Britain for a wide variety of flat roofing projects.
How Much Does A Fibreglass Flat Roof Cost?
The cost of a fibreglass flat roof depends on a number of factors. Firstly, will you be undertaking the project yourself or hiring a professional? Although GRP is a highly cost-effective roofing material, if consulting a qualified tradesperson this will naturally increase project costs. For a new fibreglass flat roof, you can expect to pay around £90 per square metre for materials, not including OSB boarding.
Do GRP Roofs Crack?
Yes, GRP roofs can often crack due to a number of reasons. GRP roofing systems cannot accommodate the same amount of thermal movement or flexibility that EPDM rubber roofing offers, and so if poorly installed then a GRP roof can be susceptible to cracking.
How Long Does a Fibreglass Roof Last?
You can expect a fibreglass roof to last for up to 30 years, or even beyond, provided it has been installed correctly and received proper care and maintenance throughout its lifetime. This makes GRP roofing kits an incredibly cost-effective roofing solution long-term, particularly when compared to the poor durability of traditional felt roofs.
Is A Fibreglass Roof Better than Felt?
Fibreglass roofing has many advantages over felt. Firstly, as a fibreglass roof kit will produce a flat roof that is entirely without seams, it will have far fewer weak points for water ingress and other issues that commonly plague felt roofing. GRP is also much more durable and resistant to weather damage and impacts and can be expected to last many years longer than felt. The only drawback is that fibreglass costs considerably more than felt, however many homeowners feel that these benefits make the added cost more than worth it.
