Roof felting is a fundamental stage when it comes to the creation of a sturdy, reliable and waterproof roof. Felting a roof adds a vital added layer of protection, helping to ensure that the property stays safe and dry no matter what the weather throws at it, even if a storm blows a tile off.
It's a component that forms a layer between the roofing tiles or roof material and your house, and is designed to protect your home. If moisture, from water or snow for example, leaks under your roof materials, the roof felt will provide the protection needed to keep your home dry. This is particularly true if you’re felting a flat roof as there’s no pitch to allow the water to run off.
Roof felt usually comes in rolls, enabling easy installation and fit no matter your size roof. Some types of roofing felt can also help to increase the overall fire rating of your roof and ensure it complies with proper installation practices, so it's worth researching the different types before you buy.
