A traditional felt roof in Shropshire is a flat roof surface that is built up using a wooden base and adding 2-3 layers of bitumous felt. These are then bonded together with heated bitumen and are subject to a finishing top coat that provdes both and attractive surface whilst helping protect the new roof from the elements. This type of roof forms a dense and wheather proof barrier to the elements. At Rapid Roofing Solutions we have installed hundreds of Felt flat roofs across the Shropshire area.

Tried & tested technique
Our felt laying method is designed for optimum durability and leak resistance. We use the traditional three layer system, which comprises of a 1mm thick venting layer which is laid loose then a 2mm thick underlay, which is stuck by using a blow lamp. Then a 4mm thick mineral finish is applied. This flat roof laying technique provides maximum strength and leak resistance.
Colour and finishes include: mineral with colour options of green, brown and grey which have UV protection built in. There is also a painted silver finish which is solar reflective, and reduces solar heating of the roof.
The finished job
Today roofing felts are usually referred to as bituminous reinforced
membranes and while the felts may look much the same as yesterday's, the performance and materials used in their development have improved dramatically, increasing resistance to aging and weathering. These developments have helped ensure that roofing felts meet customer needs and that of Building Regulations. Rapid Roofing Solutions are committed to using only the best materials and along with our skilled craftmanship we produce flat roofs in Shropshire that look great and will last the test of time.
