Corrugated fiberglass roofing – Fiberglass roofing provides a sealed surface with strong thermal resistance properties. Corrugated fiberglass roofing consists of ridged panels that overlap across the roof surface. Improper installation and extreme weather conditions can cause leaks in corrugated fiberglass roof. Repairing a leaky roof includes replacement of damaged panels or patch worn areas.
Corrugated fiberglass roofing systems consist of panels made of compressed glass microfibers embedded in the organic resin materials. Fiberglass provides a strong, durable, heat-resistant surface suitable for construction and roofing. The use of glass in the manufacture of the panels creates a translucent material that lets in light while keeping out harmful ultraviolet rays. The glass and resin composite materials also make for a lightweight roofing material. Corrugated fiberglass panels shown on commercial and private buildings.
Harsh weather, normal wear and improper installation can lead to leaks in the corrugated fiberglass roofing. Exposure to heat and cold can break down fiberglass panels over time. Strong winds can also cause considerable damage. While wind damage does not appear at once, over time the wind can flow weaken panel adhesive materials and loosen the screw screws that hold the panels in place. For low-sloping roofs, improper drainage and water pooling also degrade panel materials and cause leaks.
