Is Felt Roofing Any Good?

Felt and flat roofing systems are a popular choice and can mostly be found in shed and garage roofs. It is important to understand what the intended use is to determine if it’s the right one for your home or not.

How Is A Felt Roof Installed?

Previously, hot bitumen was used to install felt roof systems. This process was time-consuming and wasn’t really an effective way of installing as it didn’t last particularly long.

The alternative and more modern technique of installing a felt roof is to use a torch-on felt. This is applied in sheets using a blow torch to make one side sticky and layer it on. There are many key benefits of torch-felt roofing compared to the traditional method.

They are easy to apply, more durable, lightweight and inexpensive too. As such has become a popular choice among many homeowners.

Benefits Of Installing Felt Roofing


Felts are very versatile and can fit into most roofing structures regardless of their size and shape. You could also source them in various colours that match the environment and property style.


The felt membranes are lightweight and can easily fit into a range of roofing structures from smaller, weaker ones such as garages and sheds right through to more robust buildings.


Compared to other roofing membranes such as asphalt, rubber, fiberglass and PVC, felt and flat roofs are cheaper to install, maintain and also repair should they get damaged.

Easily repairable:

If your felt roof should get damaged, it can be repaired or patched quite easily and cheaply.

Drawbacks Of Felt Roofing


One of the drawbacks of felt roofing is that requires constant maintenance. Else, it could lead to splitting, UV damage and cracking. It is therefore important that you seek professional help from certified roofers to continuously maintain your felt roof.

Weather damage:

Felts are comparatively more prone to damages caused by extreme weather conditions. For instance, it can also warp out in hot temperatures and brittle during winter.

Repaired felts look untidy:

Though damage to felt is easily repairable, if not done right, the patches can look shabby and unneat. This could however be handled well by professional roofers who have experience in patching them up without affecting the look of it.
