Replacing Or Repairing Your Roof With Felt Roof Tiles


With summer almost here, now is the perfect time to really start planning those roofing projects you've been thinking about all winter. Summer is the ideal time of year for these types of home improvement projects, because no matter if you are repairing leaks or replacing an old roof with a new one, it's easier to do so when the sun is shining. As opposed to when it's raining or snowing! Which means that the first question you need to ask yourself is what type of roofing materials will you use?

For many people, the easy answer to this is the materials that are the cheapest. But this isn't always the best idea, especially when you are literally talking about the roof over your head. Rather than looking for the cheapest shingles and other building products you'll need, it's a better idea to look for products that are a good blend of quality and affordable. For example, felt roof tiles are both of these things - affordable and good quality. Never heard of them? Well then let's take a look at what exactly these type of tiles are.

Felt roof tiles are sheets of felt that generally have four tiles in them. These sheets are applied to a roof overlapping one another, to create a tiled roof effect, without the cost of individual tiles made of other materials. A base layer of felt is usually laid over the bare wood of the roof itself, with the tile sheets layered over that. Angled tin and felt strips are used to fill in gaps between gables to keep water from getting in, which gives this type of roofing material a lifespan of 15 years or more. And an added bonus is that they come in different colors.

Of course, tiles made of felt aren't ideal for all homes and climates, which means that you'll want to talk with your contractor before deciding on felt. Or, if you are taking a DIY approach to your roofing repairs, it means that you'll need to research how well felt roof tiles do in your climate. And if it turns out that felt isn't right for your home, don't worry because there are lots of other options for helping you make those repairs or replacements you've been planning.
