It is vital that any Guildford building is kept watertight, whether it’s a home or commercial premises. A key element of this is ensuring that water can’t enter the building through the roof. This can be a particular headache for buildings with flat roofs, which will often have seams and joints that can weaken over time and allow water to enter. If this happens, the building will very quickly develop damp problems, which can be expensive to put right. An increasingly popular way to ensure that flat roofs are watertight is to install a Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP) roof, which doesn’t have the same points of weakness as a traditional flat roof, and can keep a building watertight for decades without needing any repairs or maintenance.
By choosing a GRP roofer for your flat roof project in Guildford, you will have peace of mind that it will be many years before you need to pay attention to the maintenance of your flat roof. This can bring many benefits. For example, a GRP flat roof could make your Guildford house easier to sell, as potential buyers won’t worry about the costs of maintaining the flat roof. It will also mean that you need to spend less money on the ongoing maintenance of other parts of your property, as there will be no dampness caused by problems with the roof. GRP materials can also be used for the surface of balconies and external walkways, as it provides a non-slip finish. With so many benefits, why not think about using a GRP roofer for your Guildford property?
