A traditional Grey Coloured mineral roofing felt.
Roofing Felt is suitable for use with all garden buildings such as sheds, log cabins, kennels, etc.
This is also recommended by IKO as an underlay before installing felt shingles acting as a membrane. It is also suitable for use under our metal roof tiles.
Dimensions: 1.0m x 6.5m and 1.0m x 10m
- Quick and easy to install
- Waterproofs and protects shed roofs
- Felt has a life expectancy of 3 – 5 years.
- Live expectancy can be substantially reduced by overhanging branches and greenery.
- At least a 100mm overlap on each piece of felt.
- Make sure overlap is in the direction of water flow.
- It is a good idea to use our Felt Glue on the overlaps for extra security especially on flat roofs.
- For flat roofs or very shallow slopes apply bitumen Felt Glue under the overlaps.
- Overlap the edge of the roof by at least 50mm.
- Remove film from the sticky part. Heat from the sun will help to release the glue.
- The sticky part should always be hidden.
- Nails should be every 60mm. Close to the edge of an overlap.
- It helps to shape a curve when folding corners.
- Be Careful! Felt can rip easily and should be handled carefully when moving. Sharp edges, rough pulling and rough handling will damage felt easily.
- Roofing Felt requires CAREFUL handling when moving and installing.
- Felt is brittle in cold weather.
- Felt is very soft in hot weather
- Roof Felt rips easily if not handled carefully.
Recommended: Roof Felt Shingle Glue
Please Note: All felt needs careful handling. It can rip and will be brittle below 8 degrees and requires careful handling. In high temperatures, it is very pliable and can rip. Always round corners before folding over. Take care when lifting and moving felt across a roof.
Alternatives – Stronger and better options than felt
Felt has a relatively short lifespan and needs changing quite often over the life of any building. Please also consider alternative roofing options such as Roofing Shingles which are far better, stronger and have a greater longevity.
The video below gives an example of how to felt a roof. Please note a Pent Roof is the same as half an apex and should be felted in the same way.
