3 torch on roof repair or grp fibreglass finish

Hi, I've got 2 different quotes for my leaking valley on a terraced house. Both are coming in roughly the same cost but seem to be different things - can anyone tell me what is the best yet option?

1. 3 torch on system, basically leaving the old zinc valley in place but installing a new running outlet.

2. Strip out front valley, replace boards with new ply and apply GRP fibreglass finish.

We use both fibreglass and EPDM, I would say FIBREGLASS any day of the week is the best material, in fact we are doing one today in the Forest of Dean if the temperatures are in our favour.

I would definetly recommend the grp/fiberglass system and have installed several of these

Rip everything out and do GRP fibreglass.Easy to repair,cheap to repair.At least 50 years no problem if correctly installed.

Fibreglass and torch on felt are both very good products
However for a fast clean and virtually no smell i would advise anybody to use Firestone Rubbercover its very durable and would not crack over time and will out live any other product in the market place 50 years plus is the manufacturers guideline on its lifespan also should work out cheaper.

I personally do Grp/fibreglass and have done literally hundreds of valleys/gulleys. You won't get a much better finish if done by a professional.
