Also known as built up felt roofing; bituminous felt roofing is a tough, strong, and hard-wearing flat roofing option. This involves installing multi-layered felt fiber mats that are coated on each side with a bituminous coat, for highly effective weatherproofing and a lengthy life span.
We use specialised bituminous membranes here at Enviroply Roofing and this means we can install a full range of both torch-on and self-adhesive bituminous membranes to suit a range of flat roofing projects and requirements.
While installation is fast with a torch on bituminous felt roof, the self-adhesive option offers the same high level of protection and quality, while being perfect for flame free roofing projects and installations.
The multi-layer design of the specialised range means that the two different compounds can work effectively together for a high-performance roofing solution that is also technically advanced. The top layer of the membrane provides heat resistance and durability, while the lower layer provides the necessary flexibility and thermal resistance.
What are the benefits of bituminous felt roofing?
A bituminous felt roof can be an effective option bringing a number of benefits, including:
- Excellent heat resistance- the multi-layer membrane is designed for maximum heat resistance which prevents damage and allows the membrane to be more long lasting.
- Excellent durability and a higher life expectancy- a bituminous felt roof offers a high life expectancy because of the quality of the design and the advanced technology. This means that your roof will last longer and be more cost effective.
- High strength and high impact resistance- bituminous felt roofing offers high tensile strength for maximum roof protection, and high impact resistance for maximum stability.
