What are the advantages of high performance felt roofing?

There are a wide range of benefits to choosing high performance felt roofing, and these include:

  • Exceptional waterproofing- one of the main roles of any roof is to prevent water ingress and to prevent leaks. High performance felt roofing dramatically reduces the risk of leaks, due to it’s exceptional waterproofing quality. This can help to keep the structure of your property safe, reducing the need for costly repairs in the long term. This can also help to reduce potential health hazards like mold and mildew.
  • Longevity- high performance felt roofing is generally guaranteed for 30 years. This is a long lasting roofing option, when compared to other roofing options for flat roofs. This means that your roof should not be damaged by weather or animals during this time, and will only need a small amount of maintenance, instead of repairs.
  • Good thermal insulation- much of the heat in the home is lost through the roof, and the right roof type can help to reduce the amount of this heat loss. High performance felt roofing offers a high level of thermal insulation and this can help to retain heat indoors, leading to reduced energy consumption and lower heating bills.
  • Low maintenance- felt roofing is low-maintenance, requiring minimal upkeep over its lifespan. In fact, regular inspections and minor repairs are usually sufficient to keep the roof in great condition. This low-maintenance attribute can save you both time and money in the long run.
