MAINTENANCE FREE

MAINTENANCE FREE

Unlike traditional materials GRP (glass reinforced polyester) is truly maintenance free, just a wipe with a damp cloth will give the product an ‘as new’ appearance. Our GRP canopies will slot over most existing wooden or concrete structures and cover up any scarring. This will save money on any remedial work - unlike most building products, our products do not rot or distort, nor require any painting.
