There are a wide number of uses for felt roofing in Ashby de la Zouch. One of these is the use of thin felt as a base for flat roofs which are then flooded with asphalt and topped with gravel. This keeps the heat from the sun and weather off the asphalt or bitumen and helps protect it from cracking or blistering. Roofing felts are usually a thin fibre material impregnated with bitumen. This s a similar product to tar paper and is also used to make roof shingles and roll roofing. It has been used for decades as waterproof covering in residential and commercial buildings. These bitumen compositional membranes incorporate two layers. The first underside polymer membrane is used as a solid background and is often reinforced with glass fibre.
We provide affordable roofing for both residential and commercial properties. In Ashby de la Zouch, felt roofing can keep your roof waterproof for many years. On top of the polymer membrane we use mineral granules and then place a bitumen mixture on top which encapsulates the entire roof. Felt roofing paper is also used as an underlay beneath other building materials, particularly roofing and siding materials. The felt roofing paper can also be used in re-roofing applications where it will cushion unevenness and old nails and splinters on the existing timber roof frame. The felt roofing paper is made by pulling rolls of base felt through large tanks of bitumen mixture until they are saturated resulting in a water resistant but breathable material.
