Roofing felt, also known as built up bitumen felt systems, is one of the older, more traditional, roofing systems which has been modernised due to technological advances. It is a lightweight material that is easy to install and budget-friendly. Flat roofs commonly use roofing felt so it is seen in projects such as extensions, garages and sheds, however the Index torch on options are suitable for flat, sloped and curved roofs. These products can be used to waterproof and protect outside buildings from the weather and damp as a temporary or permanent fix. There are different finishes to provide a traditional look. The lifetime will depend on the product, whether it experiences a large amount of footfall, and any sort of damage caused by debris, but in general this type of roof withstands all types of weather and UV exposure very well and heavy duty roofing felt is available for a stronger finish with up to a 25 year insurance-backed manufacturers guarantee.
When it comes to installing a system like this, you have a choice of application types, depending on the product. Application is simple and not time consuming, especially compared to other systems. It can also be carried out in most weather and does not require special conditions. Basic roofing felt can be nailed on or stuck with a felt adhesive these types of felts are easily applied and used mainly for sheds outhouses and summerhouses aviaries or other small animal houses.
