A traditional grey coloured mineral roofing felt.

Dimensions:  1.0m x 6.5m and 1.0m x 10m

  • Quick and easy to install
  • Waterproofs and protects shed roofs
  • Felt has a life expectancy of 3 - 5 years.
  • Live expectancy can be substantially reduced by overhanging branches and greenary.

Installation:

  • At least a 100mm overlap on each piece of felt.
  • Make sure overlap is in the direction of water flow.
  • It is a good idea to use bitumen glue on the overlaps for extra security especially on flat roofs.
  • For flat roofs or very shallow slopes apply bitumen glue under the overlaps.
  • Overlap the edge of the roof by at least 50mm.
  • Remove film from sticky part. Heat from the sun will help to release the glue.
  • The sticky part should always be hidden.
  • Nails should be every 60mm. Close to the edge of an overlap.
  • It helps to shape a curve when folding corners.
  • Be Careful! Felt can rip easily and should be handled carefully when moving. Sharp edges, rough pulling and rough handling will damage felt easily.
  • Felt requires CAREFUL handling when moving and installing.
  • Felt is brittle in cold weather.
  • Felt is very soft in hot weather
  • Felt rips easily if not handled carefully.

Optional Roof board felt nails in bags of 200 pieces

Please Note: All felt needs careful handling. It can rip and will be brittle below 8 degrees and needs careful handling. In high temparatures it is very pliable and can rip. Always round corners before folding over. Take care when lifting and moving felt across a roof.

Alternatives - Stronger and better options than felt

Felt has a relatively short life span and needs changing quiet often over the life of any building. Please also consider alternative roofing options which are far better, stronger, greater longevity, easier to install and more suitable with less care needed:

Happy with the cabin itself, and aware that Tuin don't recommend felt but a couple of comments on this one

1: Roofing felt is never very nice to work with, and tears easily, but this stuff seems more tear-prone than average

2: given how strongly Tuin recommend their premium roof membranes/EDPM/Easy-roof over this felt, if its a near-required upgrade then the sticker-price of the cabins is almost misleading...

3: on the positive side, Tuin are very generous with the clouts (felt nails) provided with the felt so you will not run out!
