The Benefits of Torch-On Felt Roofing

There are so many advantages to having this traditional material installed at your property, such as:

  • Faster Installations

    Although this flat roof installation process requires health and safety training because our roofers use blowtorches, securing the felt in place is simpler than with other roofing materials. As a result, hot bitumen roofing can be done much quicker, which means it costs less to our clients.

  • Waterproof Seals

    Torch-on felt roofing forms a resilient and watertight seal with the roof surface. This keeps the material securely in place during adverse weather conditions, including strong winds. Additionally, it prevents water from penetrating the roof, sealing minor cracks and imperfections.

  • Strength and Durability -

    Modern pour-and-roll roofing is remarkably strong and UV-resistant. When set, it forms a hard, bonded layer on the roof’s surface, capable of withstanding extreme conditions. When properly installed and maintained, your new flat roof installation should last up to 30 years.

Our roofing contractors at Southern Way Roofing can adapt torch-on felt to suit roofs of all shapes and sizes. Following installation, we can also replace existing guttering and other roofline components with new uPVC materials.

Are you not sure whether or not it’s time to replace the roof on your Taunton property? Here are some signs to watch out for:

  • Age

    Felt roofs typically last 20-30 years. This may be significantly shorter if the original installation was substandard or you’ve ignored previous damage.

  • Cracks and Tears

    Over time, felt can become brittle, leading to cracks. Large tears expose the substructure and allow water ingress.

  • Moisture

    Have you noticed water spots on the ceiling of your property or damp in the attic? If ignored, you risk structural damage and mould.

  • Pooling Water

    Flat roof installations shouldn't hold water. If puddles form after rain, drainage fails, and the felt is compromised.
