Felt roofing

Many garages or shed roofs were made from asbestos cement, featuring around 10 to 15 per cent of the total product. Garage roofs typically feature white asbestos or Chrysotile and commonly found mineral fibre that was added to construction products because it was strong, fire-resistant, and affordable.

Issues can occur with asbestos roofing when the asbestos cement deteriorates due to wear and tear and age. It can become more brittle, and there is a greater risk of asbestos fibres being released into the air. This puts anyone nearby at risk of asbestos exposure. Once breathed in, asbestos can cause a host of health issues. Asbestos inhalation has no symptoms, and asbestos cannot be seen or smelt.

Our asbestos experts will be able to survey your asbestos roof and advise you regarding the best steps. If we remove your asbestos garage roof, we can install a new roof made from several materials, including high-performance felt.

The benefits of felt roofing

The team at All Garage Roofs uses IKO TGX torch-on roofing sheets. This is a polyester carrier coated with polymer-modified bitumen. This type of roofing material can be used for flat or sloping roofs.

The benefits of felt roofing include the following:


Felt roofing offers a highly resistant and weathertight seal, so it is very weathertight and can withstand all adverse weather conditions, including strong wind, UV, rain, and snow.

It also will not be pierced by trees or falling debris.

Strong & durable

Traditionally, felt roofing did not have a reputation for being robust.

However, the latest technically advanced three-layer systems offer exceptional strength.

Once installed and hardened, the system is very hard-wearing.


Our felt roofing materials are highly versatile. The flexible and rolled-up sheets can be cut to size and shape to fit a wide range of garages, sheds, and other outbuildings.

Once the felt is heated, it can be easy to work with.

Easy to install

Torch-on felt roofing is lightweight and easy to install.

It is applied by installing two layers of underlay and one layer of cap sheeting that uses heat to weld it to the roofing structure.

Installation can be completed at any time of the year but must be completed by a professional.

Added value

As a middle-of-the-road option when it comes to price, felt roofing adds value, so it makes a sensible choice.

It is designed to provide a robust and weatherproof option that is low maintenance.

It can also be applied to a wide range of roofing surfaces and applied to curved, flat or pitched roofs.

Easily repairable

Felt roofing is low maintenance and requires minimal attention to keep it in good condition.

In addition, due to the way it is installed, felt roofing repairs are easy and cheap to complete because a replacement section of the roof can be fitted.
