Felt roofing is a popular choice for flat roofing in the UK, but has a number of disadvantages. Generally, it is hard to install and requires regular maintenance. It also wears down very quickly if the roof space is constantly used. If the roofing material is exposed to UV rays, it will crack and peel. Another disadvantage of felt is its lack of flexibility, which makes it vulnerable to tearing.
As with any type of roofing, bitumen felt flat roofing needs regular maintenance. If a roof is exposed to direct sunlight for prolonged periods, the protective layer of crushed mineral will wear away. Exposure to UV rays will cause the bitumen base to crack and break. Additionally, felt is difficult to install and requires regular repair. Lastly, felt is not very flexible. Sharp objects will pierce the protective layer of felt and tear it.
