If you are looking for an efficient way to waterproof your roof and make it last longer, Cover It GRP roofing is an excellent option for those who want a waterproof and long-lasting roof. GRP stands for glass reinforced plastic which is a synthetic material that provides superior protection from water, air, chemicals, and UV rays. In this blog post, we’ll provide a comprehensive guide to help you install Cover It GRP roofing.
Step 1: Preparing the Roof Surface
Before installing your new Cover It GRP roofing, it’s important that you prepare the surface of your existing roof. First, clean the surface with a pressure washer or brush to remove any dirt and debris. Then inspect the surface closely for any damages or cracks that need to be repaired before proceeding with the installation process. Make sure that all holes are patched up and any loose materials are secured tightly in place using screws or nails.
Step 2: Installing the Primer Layer
Once your roof surface is prepped and ready, you can begin installing the primer layer of your Cover It GRP roofing system. The primer layer helps create a strong bond between the new material and existing surfaces. Start by mixing together two parts of resin with one part of catalyst according to instructions on the packaging. Use a brush or roller to apply the mixture evenly across the entire surface of your existing roof before allowing it time to dry completely (as instructed on the packaging).
Step 3: Installing the GRP Sheet Layer
The next step is to install the sheet layer—the top layer of your Cover It GRP roofing system. Begin by measuring out how much sheet material will be needed based on dimensions of your existing rooftop space (this can vary depending on which type of sheet material you choose). Once you have enough sheets cut out, use adhesive caulking around each edge before placing them onto the primed surface firmly in place. Allow time for everything to set completely before proceeding with Step 4 below.
Step 4: Applying Topcoat Finish
Finally, apply a top coat finish over top of all sheets using either a brush or roller as desired (again making sure everything is completely dry first!). Allow time for everything to dry completely before inspecting everything once again for any areas that may need additional attention or touch ups prior to enjoying your newly installed Cover It GRP Roofing System! All done!
