Fiberglass Roof Maintenance

Why is fiberglass roof maintenance done? 

Gradual wear and tear of Fiberglass roofs happen over time and small cracks may begin to appear. This is often due to poor installation or due to incorrect usage of resin mixture.  A new layer of fiberglass will help to smoothen  the roof surface and regain weatherproof properties. 

Process involved in fiberglass roof maintenance

Fiberglass roof maintenance should be started by cleaning the roof surface  with a mop or brush to remove dirt and debris. Avoid using a pressure washer because it may damage the topcoat of the roof. Then the fiberglass surface is thoroughly sanded by just pressing over the top of the roof lightly which helps to highlight any slight raises in the laminate by turning them white. Pay extra attention to laminate overlaps to trim edges and clean the surface after sanding is complete. An extra layer of laminate is added if required. Fast catalyst is mixed with resin during winter and standard or slow catalyst is mixed with resin during summer. Two coatings may help to hide the edges of matting. The final mixed resin for topcoat is applied on the roof surface by taking enough precautions. Mini roller provides a perfect finish to all trim phases and gives a far superior brushed finish. Then it is allowed to cure for half an hour. 

There are options for coating a deteriorating fiberglass roof using different materials. The coat is sprayed on and sanded down once cured or is applied with a rolling brush over a suitable primer. In all cases, it is best advised to seek professional help to ensure proper installation.
