Your bituminous felt roof in safe hands

Bituminous Felt

Ashford Hill are proud of our reputation as approved bituminous felt contractors for market leading roof coverings provided by Bailey, Bauder, Danosa, Garland, Icopal and Wolfin.

Bituminous felt roofing systems

All bituminous felt roofing has vastly improved in quality and performance over recent years. The felts can be used on pitched roofs with gradients of up to 25 degrees, curved and other complex shaped roofs, around upstands for skylights and roof lanterns, as well as the classic flat roof. Bituminous felt can be used to create integrated flashing, box gutters, run out valleys or junctions between abutments and the main roof. Additionally, it can overlay external insulation applied to improve a buildings energy efficiency.

A variety of systems

To drive their competitive positioning bituminous felts are available in a range of systems and a selection of colours. The premium solutions are typically durable single layer felts installed with hot air to eliminate risk and known as torch free, as well as the traditional three-layer felts that require gas torches to generate the heat required to bond the layers. This system contrasts the entry level felts that require hot bitumen to apply and seal the single or multi-layer felts. Ashford Hill Roofing subscribes to the Safe2Torch initiative ensuring that all gas torches, boilers and hot bitumen are handled safely, professionally and in accordance with BS 476: Part 3 2004 and UK Building Regulations Part B.

Ashford Hill Roofing’s experience

Ashford Hill Roofing has a team of dedicated bituminous roofing operatives, all highly experienced and trained in our manufacturers systems. To deliver the best results, we prefer to remove all existing felt before installing a new covering in order to deliver a waterproof membrane with the best resistance to hot and cold temperatures.

Ashford Hill Roofing has extensive experience across the domestic, commercial and public sectors for both new build and refurbishment projects.
