What Is Felt Roofing?
Felt roofing is a robust and versatile roofing solution that is renowned for its longevity and excellent waterproofing capabilities. Crafted from a blend of organic fibres and bitumen, felt roofing is exceptionally durable, resistant to harsh weather conditions, and provides highly efficient insulation. One of its key benefits is its cost-effectiveness, as it offers a high-performance solution at a relatively low cost. It’s also low maintenance, requiring minimal upkeep once installed, making it a popular choice for various types of structures. At IPX Roofing Services, our expertise in felt roofing extends to the installation of both torch-on felt roofs and self-adhesive felt roofs. With our high-quality felt roofing solutions, we aim to provide our clients with a reliable, cost-effective, and long-lasting roofing solution that meets their specific needs.
Understanding Felt Roofing and its Benefits
Felt roofing, also known as tar paper, is a building material utilized primarily in roofing applications to make the structure waterproof. It’s constructed by saturating a base material, commonly wool, cellulose, polyester, or fibreglass, with a bituminous substance like asphalt. This provides the felt with its characteristic waterproofing properties.
Felt roofing is a popular choice for many due to a variety of reasons. The primary benefit is its exceptional waterproofing capabilities. It effectively prevents water ingress, protecting the structure’s interior from potential water damage. This is particularly beneficial in regions with high precipitation or damp climates.
Another advantage is its durability. Felt roofing is designed to withstand harsh weather conditions, be it intense sun, heavy rain, or strong winds, ensuring the longevity of your roof.
Felt roofing is also cost-effective. This economic efficiency extends beyond the initial cost of installation, as its durability and low-maintenance nature mean fewer repair and replacement costs in the long run.
Beyond functional benefits, felt roofing also offers aesthetic flexibility. Available in a range of colours and styles, it can be tailored to complement any architectural design, enhancing the overall look of the structure.
For all these reasons, felt roofing makes for a solid and reliable choice for your roofing needs. With IPX Roofing Services, you can be assured of the highest quality felt roofing installation, ensuring your structure remains protected, durable, and aesthetically pleasing for years to come.
Various Types of Felt Roofing
Felt roofing comes in different types, offering various benefits tailored to the specific needs of a building or structure. At IPX Roofing Services, we provide a range of felt roofing options to cater to diverse customer requirements.
Torch-On Felt Roofing
Torch-on felt roofing, also known as torch-down roofing, involves applying sheets of bituminous felt with a torch. This process ensures a robust and seamless finish, providing an effective waterproof barrier. Torch-on felt roofing is known for its superior durability and high resistance to foot traffic, making it an ideal choice for commercial buildings and flat roofs.
Self-Adhesive Felt Roofing
Self-adhesive felt roofing is a user-friendly solution that does not require any heat for installation. The felt comes with a pre-applied adhesive layer, making the installation process quick and easy. This type of felt roofing is an excellent choice for smaller structures such as garden sheds, garages, and outbuildings.
Mineral Felt Roofing
Mineral felt roofing comes with a granulated, weather-resistant finish that can withstand harsh weather conditions. This type of felt roofing not only provides superior protection but also comes in a range of colors, adding aesthetic appeal to your building.
Polyester Felt Roofing
Polyester felt roofing uses a polyester base, making it highly flexible and resistant to splitting. This type of felt roofing is ideal for structures that require a more flexible roofing solution, such as buildings with unconventional shapes or curves.
At IPX Roofing Services, we help you select the felt roofing type best suited to your needs, ensuring optimal performance and longevity.

Frequently Asked Questions About Felt Roofing
What Is roofing felt?
Roofing felt, often referred to as tar paper, is a heavy-duty protective layer that is installed between the roof deck and the roofing shingles. It is commonly made from a base of natural materials such as wood cellulose or synthetic materials like polyester or fiberglass, which is then saturated with a waterproofing agent, typically bitumen (asphalt). The primary function of roofing felt is to provide an extra layer of protection against external elements such as rain, wind, and snow, thereby preventing water intrusion and subsequent damage to the roof structure. This critical component of the roofing system also provides a clean, even surface for the application of shingles, improving the final appearance of the roof. Furthermore, in the event of shingle blow-off during severe weather, roofing felt can provide an additional barrier against the elements until repairs can be made. With its blend of affordability, ease of installation, and protective qualities, roofing felt is a popular choice in both residential and commercial roofing projects. Trust the experts at IPX Roofing Services to ensure your roofing felt is installed correctly for maximum performance and durability.
Where can I use felt on my home?
Felt roofing, offered by IPX Roofing Services, is a versatile and durable option that can be used in various areas of your UK home. It is particularly well-suited for flat roofs, such as those often found on extensions, garages, and garden sheds. Felt can also be used as an underlay beneath other roofing materials on pitched roofs, providing an extra layer of protection. In addition, it serves as an excellent waterproof barrier for balconies and terraces. With professional installation and proper maintenance, felt roofing can provide a reliable and long-lasting solution for your roofing needs.
How much does it cost to put felt on a roof?
The cost of installing felt roofing can vary greatly depending on multiple factors, such as the size and complexity of the roof, the grade of felt used, and the geographic location. As of current market trends, for a typical UK home, you can expect to pay between £50-£100 per square meter for high-quality felt roofing, including the cost of materials and labour. However, bear in mind that this is a rough estimate, and costs can vary. At IPX Roofing Services, we strive to offer competitive pricing while maintaining the highest standards of quality and service. We recommend reaching out to us directly for a customised quote tailored to your specific needs.
How long does a felted roof last?
With regard to longevity, a well-maintained, professionally installed felt roof from IPX Roofing Services can last up to 20-30 years. The exact lifespan may vary based on factors such as the quality of the materials used, the prevailing climatic conditions, and the frequency of maintenance. It’s essential to undertake regular inspections and promptly address any signs of wear and tear. This will not only extend the functional life of your felt roof but also ensure that your home remains protected against the elements. Remember that at IPX Roofing Services, we’re always available for expert advice, routine maintenance, and any repair services you may require.
Do you need a membrane under roofing felt?
Yes, using a membrane under roofing felt is highly recommended. This layer, often referred to as a ‘vapour control layer’ (VCL), is crucial in managing condensation and moisture within the roof structure, thus preventing potential water damage. It acts as a barrier, limiting the amount of warm, moist air that can penetrate into the roof from the interior of the building. Without this layer, condensation can build up, leading to damp, rot, and ultimately, structural damage. At IPX Roofing Services, we ensure that a suitable VCL is included as part of our professional installation process for felt roofing, providing you with an extra level of protection and peace of mind.
Should you felt an old roof?
Felt roofing over an existing old roof is a decision that should be made with careful consideration. In some situations, it can be a practical and cost-effective solution, providing an additional layer of protection to an older roof that is still structurally sound. However, it’s critical to ensure that the old roof is in good condition, free of any existing moisture or rot, and that the underlying structure is capable of supporting the additional weight of the new felt layer. Applying felt over a damaged or deteriorated roof can merely mask underlying issues, leading to more significant problems down the line. At IPX Roofing Services, we recommend a thorough inspection and assessment by one of our experienced roofing professionals before making a decision. We can provide expert advice tailored to your unique situation, ensuring the most effective and long-lasting solution for your roofing needs.
Can you walk on felt roof?
While it is technically possible to walk on a felt roof, it is generally not recommended unless necessary for maintenance or inspection purposes. Walking on the roof can potentially damage the felt surface, leading to punctures or tears that could compromise its waterproofing capabilities. If it is essential to access the roof, we advise wearing soft-soled shoes and walking slowly and carefully to minimise the risk of damage. At IPX Roofing Services, we also offer professional inspection and maintenance services, reducing the need for homeowners to access the roof themselves. Safety, after all, is of utmost priority, and we are here to assist in ensuring your roof remains in optimal condition for a good number of years.
Is roofing felt 100% waterproof?
Felt roofing is designed to be highly water-resistant, providing an effective barrier against rainfall and other forms of moisture. However, while it offers excellent waterproofing capabilities, it is crucial to note that no roofing material can claim to be 100% waterproof under all conditions. Even felt roofing, if improperly installed or poorly maintained, can succumb to water ingress over time. This is why professional installation and regular maintenance, as provided by IPX Roofing Services, are crucial to ensuring the longevity and durability of your felt roofing. Also, the use of additional layers, such as a vapour control layer (VCL), can further enhance its waterproofing effectiveness.
