Signs Your Felt Roof Needs Replaced

Signs indicating that your felt roof may need a full replacement include:

Constant Leaks: Persistent leaks or water stains on ceilings or walls can indicate underlying roofing issues.

Visible Damage: Look for signs of wear and tear such as cracks, splits, or blistering on the surface of the felt.

Sagging or Drooping: A roof that appears to be sagging or drooping in certain areas may signal structural damage or deterioration of the underlying materials.

Missing Granules: If your felt roof has a granulated surface, missing granules or bald spots could suggest age related degradation.

Bubbling or Blisters: Bubbling or blistering on the surface of the felt can indicate moisture trapped underneath, which may lead to further damage if not addressed promptly.

Rot or Mould: Signs of rot or mould growth, such as dark spots or discolouration, may indicate moisture infiltration and potential structural damage.

Age: Consider the age of your felt roof. Most felt roofs have a lifespan of around 20-30 years, so if yours is approaching or exceeding this timeframe, it may be time for replacement.

If you notice any of these signs, it’s advisable to consider a replacement roof, with repairs often only leading to further issues arising in the future.

Felt Garage Roof Replacement

Old garages are commonly known to have felt fitted on them. Here is the process we follow to remove the old felt and install a modern replacement.

Old Roof Removal

Felt Stripping: Begin by carefully removing the old felt roofing material, starting from the edges and progressing inward. Employ tools like a roofing spade or scraper for effective removal.

Roof Inspection: After stripping away the old felt, thoroughly inspect the roof deck for any damage, rot, or structural issues requiring attention before proceeding with the new roof installation.

Preparation for New Roof

Cleaning: Cleanse the roof deck to eliminate debris, dust, and any lingering adhesive from the previous felt.

Repair Deck: Address any damage or rot on the roof deck by replacing compromised boards or sheathing as necessary.

Priming: Apply a primer to the cleaned and repaired roof deck to enhance adhesion and waterproofing capabilities for the upcoming installation.

New Roof Installation

Choose Materials: Decide whether to install either EPDM rubber or metal cladding as a long lasting durable replacement.

Installation: Adhere to manufacturer guidelines and industry standards for installing EPDM rubber or metal cladding. Also ensure gutters, downpipes and other upvc is in place.

Finishing Touches and Inspection

Inspection: Conduct a comprehensive inspection of the newly installed roof to confirm quality installation.
