Fibreglass roofs consist of polyester resin and distributed strand mat glass fibers, forming a strong laminate. They have become a popular choice for flat roofing due to their strength and lightweight nature, minimizing additional stress on buildings.
Lightweight Material: Fibreglass roofs are thinner and lighter than traditional metal, terracotta, or cement roofs, facilitating easy installation.
Energy Efficiency: Fibreglass roofs allow natural light in, reducing the need for artificial lighting and lowering energy consumption.
Structural Integrity: Properly installed fibreglass roofs do not require repairs, maintaining their structural integrity over time.
Weather Resistance: Fibreglass roofs are resistant to sun damage, waterproof, and more fire-resistant than pressed fiber, making them suitable for areas prone to bushfires.
Delamination, Cracking, and Splitting: Deteriorating fibreglass sheets lose their ability to transmit natural light, leading to increased energy usage.
Wind Damage: Cracked and split sheets are prone to tearing in strong winds, posing a risk of damage to the roofing system.
Leakage Issues: Deteriorated sheets are a common cause of leaks, emphasizing the importance of proactive maintenance.
Energy Efficiency Improvement: Duravex Commercial Roofing replaced old fibreglass sheets, resulting in a substantial reduction in energy consumption for their client.
Carbon Footprint Reduction: Upgrading to new fibreglass sheets not only improves energy efficiency but also contributes to minimizing the client’s carbon footprint.
Enhanced Durability: Roof replacements ensure the integrity of the roofing system, preventing leaks and other issues associated with deteriorated sheets.
Cost Savings: Fibreglass roofs are cost-effective compared to traditional roofing materials, offering savings in both installation and long-term maintenance.
Sun and Water Resistance: Fibreglass roofs resist sun damage and are waterproof, ensuring longevity and protection against the elements.
Fire Resistance: Fibreglass roofs provide increased fire resistance, making them suitable for properties in areas prone to bushfires.
Environmental Friendliness: Minimal asphalt in fibreglass roofs contributes to their eco-friendly nature.
Longevity: A well-installed fibreglass roof can last at least 30 years with no detectable deterioration, and even inexpensive options offer a lifespan of 20 years.
Potential Issues: While durable, all roofs may experience damage or deterioration at some point, necessitating attention to maintain their longevity.
