What is Felt Roofing?

Roofing felt is a composite of an absorbent sheet of organic or synthetic fibre. It is saturated and coated with a waterproofing agent such as tar or asphaltic bitumen that prevents ingress of moisture. The felt roofing system is built up of multiple layers of high performance felts over an insulated timber or concrete flat roof deck. The layers of vapour dispersion and control membranes are then sealed with graded roofing felts to guarantee a waterproof installation.

Felt Roof Features

NWIR can install a number of market-leading felt roofing systems with APAO, APP and SBS materials.
Our felt roofing systems are suitable for new build and refurbishment projects; here are the features of felt roofing:
Felt systems can be installed onto a wide range of surfaces, including but not limited to:- asphalt, concrete, aged felt and more.
Overlaying an existing flat roof with new Bituminous felt is a highly economical option when there is no requirement to remove the existing roof.
Felt roofing can easily incorporate a layer of insulation to increase the thermal performance of your building.

Felt Roofing Systems

Felt roofing systems are available in traditional torch applied and fully cold applied versions to suit our client’s site installation requirements. At NWIR, our felt roofing systems demonstrate a high tensile strength, which allows for the roof’s thermal movement during the sudden changes of the UK climate.
Depending on your building requirements, our highly experienced roofers will tailor our felt roofing systems to suit your needs.

Felt Roof Solutions

Felt roofing solutions are available as single layer overlay systems or as a fully insulated roof build-up to current warm roof regulations. Tapered insulation schemes can be introduced to the existing flat roof to create effective falls to eliminate ponding water. Within the roof refurbishment process after moisture scanning the existing roof, many existing waterproofing systems can often be overlaid to reduce cost and minimise disruption at site.
