Felt and bitumen roofing is a traditional way to waterproof a roof. It is typically used on smaller structures such as outhouses, garages, sheds and extensions.

Felt/Bitumen Roofing – What is Involved?

The work generally consists of three layers of high performance roofing felt laid in hot bitumen. The edges are finished with a blue/grey mineral felt.
The surface can be completed with an alternative of three different finishes:
  • Silver bitumen paint
  • Granite chippings
  • Mineral finish
Work is usually completed within 2 days depending on the nature of the job.

10 Year Felt & Bitumen Roofing Guarantee

All of the felt and bitumen roofs I install come with a 10 year guarantee giving you the reassurance that, were anything to go wrong, you won’t end up forking out. This guarantee is provided in the form of a written certificate handed to all felt and bitumen roofing customers upon completion of work.

An Affordable Option

Felt and bitumen roofing is one of the most popular and cost effective ways to cover a roof with maximum protection from the harsh Cornish weather.
Despite supposedly being an affordable option, I frequently hear of customers receiving eye-watering felt roofing quotes, especially from large companies. My advice; shop around, compare quotes and pick the provider that is right for you.
When finding quotes, make sure that you also ask about rubbish disposal. Here at CA Flat Roofing I ensure that all rubbish is removed from the site at the end of the job at no extra cost – who wants a skip full of old roofing?
