grp balcony covering is the best on the market for heavy foot traffic ideal for a balcony area in addition the GRP finish can be installed with a non-slip surface.
GRP fibreglass is a roofing system that is completely water proof. Seam-less with no weak points OR joints liquid applied with no flames and can be moulded to any detail such has Soil pipes. Windows. OR outlets. Balcony’s throughout Cumbria can sometimes be a headache once a problem occurs due to balustrades and access difficulties.
Most balconies with water ingress problems is commonly caused by the wrong boarding when installed flat roof and balcony boarding has come a long way over the years now instead of using plywood or marine ply we use OSB-3 sterling board 18m tounge and groove (OSB-3) Oriented Strand Board. Roof decking boards are moisture resistant which makes them ideal for flat roofs and balcony areas
A balcony replacement now can be installed much easier with pre-made fibreglass trims and up-stands all these trims are in 3m lengths and once fixed to the OSB boards are fibre glassed on to and make a seam-less seal around the whole area of the roof. These trims come in different profiles for different applications such has a raised edge trim which would direct the water towards the drip edge and stop the water running over the side of the roof this would normally be done with timber then made water tight which can be difficult when there’s balustrades around the roof.
The seam-less finish looks great and much better than the traditional torch-on felt system
