Could ‘Cure it: GRP’ be the final solution for waterproofing flat roofs?

March 6th, 2014

Any roofer will know that flat roofs are a little problematic, especially when it comes to keeping them waterproof. It’s true that, no matter how well the roof was originally installed, a flat roof will leak more frequently than any other type of roof.

Well, there could be a solution. Replace your flat, leaking roof with something new and make it leak free for a very long time. How long? Well, it’s been hard to give an exact estimate. Some studies say 50 years, many say more! There’s a 20 year materials guarantee which demonstrates the confidence CURE IT have in their revolutionary GRP roofing, which means fibreglass roofing to those unfamiliar with the term.

Fibreglass is commonly used in the production of boats and ponds. Things that have to be strong and watertight when underwater. Not only is it waterproof, it is also fire retardant (BS476-3 EXT.F.AB), very easy to install and it’s not just for flat roofs, it can can be used almost anywhere:

  • Domestic or ‘pitched’ roofs
  • Porches
  • Extensions
  • Garages
  • Commercial applications
  • Balconies, walkways, steps, parapets (can be non-slip specified for heavy footfall)
  • Gutters
  • Rooflights
  • Green roofs
  • Ponds/pools
  • Vertical surfaces
A fibreglass roof can add value to a property and doesn’t require seams, joints or welds, or heat or even specialist tools. It’s also available in a massive range of colours and finishes, so any customers’ needs can be met. CURE IT can provide full training for its installation too, if the following video isn’t enough to convince you about how easy GRP roofing is to install. Everything you need for your own set up of the CURE IT GRP Waterproofing System you can now get straight from Selco.
