Bitumen Felt Roof

Bituminous felt roofing is one of the oldest types of flat roofing material around. It is comprised of glass fiber or polyester fleece molded into a sheet with a mixture of bitumen (essentially asphalt) and sand or limestone. It comes in rolls of varying widths and is installed by rolling them out onto a roof. Some bitumen-felt roofing is self-adhering, while others are applied by heating with a torch.

Benefits of Bitumen Felt Roofing

Bitumen felt roofing is most commonly used to cover flat roofs. There are many benefits associated with this kind of roofing, including:

  • Long-lasting lifespan
  • Durable
  • Waterproof
  • Minimal maintenance

Bitumen felt roofing forms a waterproof layer that will typically last 10 to 15 years, depending on weather conditions. The roofing withstands UV rays and high temperatures and will tolerate limited foot traffic and falling debris. Maintenance is minimal, and the cost puts it squarely in the middle of commercial roofing systems. Besides being used as a roofing system, it is also widely used as an underlay for slate and tile roofing.

We had our flat top roof replaced by Overhead. It was done quickly, when a problem arose, they consulted both us and Paul the owner for the best solution, and cleaned up the whole yard after. We did have a leak since due to our unusual roof drain and they returned and fixed it immediately under warrantee. We will definitely recommend their service.
