Why should I choose The Northwest Fibreglass roofing system when there are cheaper roof coverings available?

A

First of all, The Northwest Fibreglass roofing system is not a roof covering, it is a complete roofing system. This means that your Northwest Fibreglass roofing contractor will fit a new roof deck of high grade exterior plywood or OSB sterling board onto which the Fibreglass roofing GRP system (glassfibre reinforced polyester resin) is applied to form a seamless membrane that is totally impervious to water. It is a premium system, that comes with an insurance backed 25 year guarantee. Yes, you can have your roof recovered in felt for less, but after a few years it will crack at the seams, blister and let in water again. Also once a roof has started leaking it will invariably weaken or rot the substrate. What you get with The Northwest Fibreglass roofing system is complete peace of mind. Once it’s installed you never need worry about the roof deteriorating or leaking again.
Also when you consider that your Fibreglass roof will outlast felt by a factor of at least three or four times, it’s clearly an investment that will save you money over the longer term. Our home is our biggest investment so we should protect its value by ensuring that the roof is always structurally sound and waterproof

   

Q 

How can I stop water gathering on my flat roof?

A

Water ‘ponding’ is avoided by building in a slight fall (slope) into your new roof to run off water into the gutters. Your old roof is most likely covered in stone chippings, moss and lichen - which all encourage ponding anyway. There are no stones with The Northwest Fibreglass roofing system and it doesn’t attract moss or lichen. Even with your new Northwest Fibreglass roofing system you will see no ponding and don’t worry, The Northwest Fibreglass roofing system is totally impervious to water.

   

Q 

What if I sell my home, is the guarantee transferable?

A

Yes, The Northwest Fibreglass roofing system guarantee is as watertight as the system itself. It is insurance backed and independently administered. Should you sell your house within the 25 year warranty period then let us know and the guarantee will be transferred into the name of the new owner – which is added reassurance to them.

   

Q 

What does BBA approval mean?

A

BBA Certificates have been providing authoritative and independent information on the performance of building products for over 35 years. Every BBA Certificate contains important data on durability, installation and compliance with Building Regulations throughout the UK. The Northwest Fibreglass roofing system uses fibreglass reinforced resins that have been specially developed for flat roofing. Don’t be taken in by companies offering cheap fibreglass roofing systems as they won't be BBA approved and they’ll probably be using ordinary rigid fibreglass resins – which are not designed for use on buildings. Chances are they’ll also be laying onto a chipboard (OSB) deck rather than exterior grade plywood.

Q

How long will it last?
