What is Felt Roofing Made From?

Felt roofing in Manchester is largely made of modified bitumen combined with either fibreglass or polyester. Polyester is usually more premium as it’s extremely difficult to tear. It also suits the general movement that occurs with flat roofs. This combination with bitumen means felt roofing is tough and reliable which gives it a long-life span.

The Advantages of Felt Roofing

Felt roofing in Manchester is a cost-effective solution for both domestic and commercial structures. It offers customers value for their money whilst being effective and easy to replace.

Felt is easy to work with and gives a nice aesthetic appeal. Once the felt roofing is damaged or has run its course most of it can be recycled making it eco-friendly.


When Should Felt Roofing Be Replaced or Repaired?

Felt roof tears and cracks

These issues are the easiest to spot. Tears and cracks can be caused by weather damage and even age. Small tears can be repaired easily, however, if it’s significantly torn or cracked in the middle, it may be time for a full replacement. Our specialist flat roofers can help decide the best course of action.

Bubbling and blistering

If the adhesive in the roof has been poorly installed in the past, you may start to notice some bubbling and blistering appearing in the felt. If detected early, it can be easily repaired. If blisters grow and pop, they can cause a hole in your roof which would need to be replaced.

Ponding on felt roof

Ponding can significantly lower the life span of your felt roof. It can cause additional stress and result in cracking and water leakages. If left too long, it can cause structural issues – requiring the roof to be repaired or replaces

Felting roofing in Manchester is a great and reliable way of covering your flat roof to make it stronger and durable, and our professional roofers are on hand to help.
