Fibreglass Roof Derby

By the specialist roofing experts

Fiberglass roofing is made up of woven fiberglass material that has been coated with resin and then baked in an oven to make this type of roof waterproof. The materials used offer protection from harsh weather conditions such as hail storms and high winds making it one of the best long-lasting roof options available today, not just for your home but also commercial properties. Fibreglass roofs belong to the family of roofs called plastic roofs which also includes PVC and polycarbonate.

Advantages of fiberglass roofs include the following:

  • They come with a warranty for up to 20 years, making it easier than other types of roof materials (such as asphalt shingle) when you need repairs or replacement tiles within that time period.
  • Fiberglass roofing is lightweight and does not include metal or other heavy materials which make it easy to install on your roof.
  • Fiberglass roofs are a great roofing option for areas that experience high winds because they will not be damaged in the event of a strong storm. Fiberglass roofing is resistant to high winds because they are not as easily damaged by strong storms. Fibreglass roofs have a higher resistance against fire and do not burn easily which makes them less likely to be destroyed in the event of an inferno. 
  • Fiberglass roofs are highly resistant to hail storms and have a high resistance against fire because they do not burn easily. 
  • Fiberglass roofs find useful application in buildings such as churches and schools. This is because fibreglass roofs have a higher resistance against fire and do not burn easily which makes them less likely to be destroyed in the event of an inferno


Limitations of fiberglass roofing include the following:

  • Fibreglass roofing can be very expensive which makes it a less popular option than asphalt shingle, metal or slate roofing for most homeowners looking to install new tiles on their homes.
  • Installation is tough without professional help as you will need special tools such as power drills, saws and shovels in order to complete installation properly.

Considerations to make in selecting fiberglass roofing include the following:

  •  Fiberglass roofing is resistant to high winds because they are not as easily damaged by strong storms.
  • Fibreglass roofs have a higher resistance against fire and do not burn easily which makes them less likely to be destroyed in the event of an inferno.
