3 Layer Felt Roofing System
3 Layer Felt Roofs are one of the best roofing materials for a flat roof and generally are considered to have a life of 30 to 40 years, that is assuming they are laid correctly and detailed correctly.
Exactly like a blister on your finger, blistering can occur to Felt. If this is found it needs to be cut out and repaired, as, exactly like a blister on your finger, it can burst and crack open ultimately allowing dampness into the property.
When and where there is movement, or poor detailing, cracking occurs. This leads ultimately to water getting into the structure. To rectify this you will need a new layer of Felt applied, in severe cases of cracking more than one new layer will need to be applied.
Water Logged Felt Roofs:
Whilst an felt roof can withstand water sitting on it longer than most types of flat roofs, it does ultimately start to damage it. You can, to some extent, amend the detailing by applying further Felt on top of the original.
How is Felt applied?
The Felt is placed on to the under-layer and torched to heat and shape to Specification in 3 layers. The edges will be cut and shaped as required to ensure no leaks occur.lied hot and literally put on with a trowel onto the roof in two or three coats.
