Roofing for commercial, domestic and industrial properties is an important consideration, that does need to be taken seriously. The right roof can have an impact on the safety and security of your building, the weather protection, as well as the thermal insulation. For flat roofs, felt roofing is a great option. But high performance felt roofing can be even better. But what are the advantages of high performance felt roofing? Well, here at Gilston Building Services we offer a variety of high quality roofing services. This includes built up felt roofing, and high performance felt roofing. As a result, we have produced this guide to the benefits of high performance felt roofing.
What is 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,
What are the advantages of high performance felt roofing?
High performance felt roofing can bring a range of advantages, including:
- Longevity- high performance felt roofing does generally come with a lifetime expectancy of around 30 years and most suppliers will offer at least 25 year guarantee! So you wont need to replace your roof for many years to come.
- Durability- because high performance felt roofing is created using polyester, this type of roof is far more flexible, and long lasting than other types of felt roofing. It is also tear and puncture resistant, so will take much less damage from the weather, or animals.
- Cost – High performance felt roofing is cheaper than other options available on the market, but it does still provide a highly effective and watertight roof.
