Expert installation of 3 layer felt roofing systems.

What Is A 3 Layer Felt Roof System?

Offering an upgrade on the old-fashioned bitumen and stone chip system of felt roofing, the 3 layer felt roof system has changed the way these roofs are laid.

Giving the benefit of longer-lasting resistance to UV rays, this method of laying flat roofs has a lot of advantages, and is sure to be a fine choice for your dormer, extension, or anywhere else you have a flat roof.

What are the advantages of a 3 layer felt roof system?

Fitted using a blowtorch, the 3 layer felt roof system benefits from being more stable than the older methods. Each of the three layers is laid in a half-lap system, so any joint in the roof is as far away as possible from another joint.

The 3 layer felt roof system is also versatile when it comes to appearance. If you are looking for a more colourful finish, or something reflective, it’s easily achieved with this system. Whatever your purposes for having a new roof installed, it will meet your needs.

Perhaps most importantly of all, the 3 layer torch on felt roof system is durable. While the bitumen and stone chip system could only guarantee you five years of service, this system will offer at least twice as much, but could serve you without issues for as long as 20 years.
