What are the benefits of high performance felt roofing?

High performance felt roofing is a type of felt roof that is created using polyester, rather than glass fibre. This is installed in the same way as any other felt roof, by building layers of the fibre mat, coated with a bituminous coating.

There are a number of advantages and benefits to high performance felt roofing for any flat roof. These advantages include:

  • Increased durability- Compared to other types of felt roofing, high performance felt roofing can offer an increased durability. This is because of the use of polyester, rather than glass fibre, which allows for an increased level of flexibility, while also being tear and puncture resistant, taking less damage from heavy weather or even animals.
  • Increased Longevity- Because high performance felt roofing is more durable and flexible than other options, this tends to have a longer life expectancy too. In general, a high performance felt roof will be guaranteed for 30 years. This is a long lasting roofing option, when compared to other roofing options for flat roofs.
  • Lower maintenance- In comparison to a green or sedum roof, a high performance felt roof requires much less maintenance. All you will need to do is remove debris and leaves from the roof and gutter a couple of times a year.
  • Reliable- built up felt roofing is a robust, durable and resilient option for any roof. Built to withstand high and low temperatures, as well as all types of weather, a good quality, high performance felt roof is a good investment.
