Felt Roofing: Adaptable to a variety of surfaces
Resistant from the elements and suitable for any size job, felt roofing is a popular choice for sheds, garages and extensions. Incredibly versatile, felt can be applied to any flat, curved or pitched roof surface
How it’s installed
Felt roofs can be installed using either
hot works or cold works techniques.
Cold works techniques are easier but not suitable for uneven surfaces or when being applied in cold conditions. Hot works techniques use either bitumen to bond and seal layers of felt or a gas torch to heat the felt and attach it to the roof.
Torch On Felt
Torch on felt sees three layers of bitumen felt are welded onto the roof with a blow torch which will create the waterproof seal, traditionally these layers are made up of vapour control sheets, reinforced felt and a cap sheet with mineral finish. For habitable areas of your home you will require three layers. However, for sheds and garages you will only require two.
Torched-on felt is a quick and straightforward job, one of the factors that adds to the quick installation time is the fact that this method can be carried out in wet and dry conditions. Torch felt is resistant to UV rays, strong winds and rain, which is very handy considering how suddenly the British weather can change.
