Make a Feature of Your Bay Window

Bay windows can be an attractive feature of any property. However, you can bring them to life even more by adding a flat or pitched roof. These can now be manufactured in a range of colors and are extremely durable, providing numerous benefits for homeowners.

Curb Appeal

We all want our homes to be admired by visitors and passers-by and including a bay window roof can instantly brighten up the exterior. If you’re thinking of putting your house on the market, then first impressions really do count. It’s better to replace an old roof that’s in need of repair before potential buyers come for viewings. A property that looks well maintained from the outside is seen as a better prospect, as the interior will probably be of the same standard.

Choice of Colors

The majority of bay window roofs are now produced from GRP (glass reinforced plastic), which is also known as fiberglass. Unlike traditional roofing materials such as lead and tile, GRP can be manufactured in a variety of colors. This means you can match it to the existing roof so that it doesn’t look too different, or you could completely change the color so it really stands out. You could choose colors traditionally associated with roofs, such as slate grey or terracotta. Alternatively, most styles can be produced in any BS or RAL color, allowing you to create a truly unique feature.

Protects Your Property

Not only does a bay window roof improve the overall look of your property, but it can also help to protect it from inclement weather. GRP is extremely durable and strong, meaning it can withstand all extremes of British weather. It will perform the same in both heavy and persistent rain or heat-wave conditions. The material is waterproof and, as long as it’s installed properly, will ensure your property is leak-free for the life of the roof. The final finish includes a UV-resistant coating, which will reduce any color deterioration and keep the roof in excellent condition.

Easy to Maintain

GRP roofs are maintenance-free and won’t need any specialist treatments once they’re installed. The best way to ensure that your new roof lasts a lifetime is to have it installed correctly in the first place. They’re relatively easy to fit and don’t require any specialist equipment or machinery. However, by having it professionally installed, you can guarantee that everything has been done in the right way and that you won’t have any issues in the future.

Improve Security

With the decline in the economy there has been an increase in the numbers of thefts of lead across the country. Lead has a high scrap value and has long been sought after by criminals looking to make some easy money. The benefit of replacing your existing lead roof with a GRP one is that the new material doesn’t have a resale value. This makes it worthless to thieves, so will make your property less of a target.
