High Performance felt membranes are developed with the inclusion of elastomeric bitumen and polyester base, providing good flexibility to cope with extreme temperature change. Felt roofing membranes comprise of two or three layers, subject to specification, forming a multi layer system for flat, pitched or curved roofs.
High Performance felt has a proven performance record and can be expected to last in excess of 20 years.
TORCH ON MEMBRANES
Torch on systems are bonded together with the use of a flame gun, which activates the bonding bitumen causing the layers to fuse together.
The top layer of the felt membrane is finished with either a mineral cap sheet which in itself is a protective layer, with its solar reflectivity or with a plain layer which would have stone chippings bonded to the surface with a suitable adhesive. The plain layer can also be used under promenade tiles, decking, inverted roof systems or painted with a solar reflective coating.
Require A New Roof?
When your old roof has come to the end of it’s life, repair after repair can become a financial burden. You will need to work closely with your roofing services provider to determine whether your roof can be repaired or replaced.
Warm Roof Required?
Warm roofs are popular in cold areas. Good roofers offer a variety of insulation options including celotex boards, rockwool, micro-fibre and space blanket. The most common types for a flat roof are rockwool for between joists, or celotex for warm and cold roof installations. Trained surveyors can advise you of your insulation options upon inspection.
