GRP stands for ‘Glass Reinforced Plastic’ a material made from a polyester resin, which is reinforced by chopped strand mat glass fibres to form a GRP laminate. It is a very popular composite material to use due to the fact that not only is it very strong but also surprisingly light.
7 years ago we bought a 3 storey house in Pimlico with the intention of retiring there sometime around 2014. One of the attractions of the property was that the entire roof was a roof garden of some 45.1 square metres. We did the place up in order to rent it, which included installing a new GRP roof and new lead flashings. We then put timber decking over this as the walking surface of the roof garden.
Having viewed most of your videos on your YouTube channel, I’m wondering if you cover the Portsmouth area for a small flat roof covering? I’m planning a 7m x 3m extension utilising a warm roof construction I think. The roof will also have a 3m x 1m roof light in it.
