Why Choose Fibreglass Roofs?
At Nationwide, we have always placed great value on fibreglass, as we truly believe that they’re the ideal solution to modern building needs – whether they be for domestic, commercial or industrial properties.
When selecting a roof material, there are several considerations to keep in mind. These include cost, performance, upkeep, longevity, aesthetics and strength. In most cases, fibreglass offers the best balance of these for the following reasons:
We find that reliable and long-term water resistance is often a top priority when clients are choosing a roof material, especially when considering the weather conditions in Ireland. This not only helps keep your interiors safe – it also prevents any structural damage happening to the building itself, and reduces costs in the long-run. Fibreglass roofs offer unparalleled weather proofing, and are resilient against common roofing problems like leaks and water ingress.
With any roof project, you have to consider and calculate the cost of materials, installation and maintenance. Roof work can easily escalate and become expensive, so to find the best options that you can afford within your budget, you need to spend time researching to find the perfect balance between affordability and quality. For example: felt roofs can last as little as five years, while fibreglass systems generally last well over 20! As such, fibreglass roofs are often much more affordable over their lifetime.
Fibreglass roofs are highly durable and, once they are installed, they require very little maintenance. This is because, when installed properly by a professional, problems with fibreglass roofs are very rare. Should a fibreglass roof develop an issue, like a crack or leak, repairs are often very simple to do without the need to remove or replace it.
Fibreglass Roof Installation
There are several steps that need to be taken when installing a fibreglass roof. While this can be done independently, the most sensible and cost-effective way to install a fibreglass roof is to source an experienced professional. This is because fibreglass roof installation is a specialist process, and even the smallest mistakes can lead to expensive issues.
As a credible roofing contractor, we have an intricate understanding of the possible risks associated with each stage of installation – and, more importantly – what best practices need to be implemented in order to avoid these.
As such, installing fibreglass roofs is a specialism we pride ourselves on here at Nationwide. From installing decking, edging and trims, laminating and topcoating – we can talk you through what’s involved in each step of the process, so you know exactly what to expect from us.
