EPDM Roofing in Telford vs Roofing Felt

17 May 2019

EPDM roofing in Telford supplied by Hems Limited is one of the most popular materials used for residential homes. Roofing felt or torch-on felt is the other material commonly used, so here we are going to look at the differences between the two.

Key Factors when Choosing Your Roofing

Durability – EPDM roofing is a far more durable material and can withstand extreme weather conditions all year round plus it’s easy to repair (if required) and flexible. Felt is far more susceptible to hot climates and cracking in the cold.
Cost – EPDM is a much more cost-effective solution in the long run because of the aforementioned durability. Felt membranes are initially cheaper but won’t last as long which will lead to extra costs for repair work down the line.
Installation – EPDM membranes installed by Hem’s team of specialists are quicker and easier to install using a safe adhesive solution. Installing torch-on felt is not a practical option as you would need a gas torch and a bitumen boiler which would need handling by professionals, only adding to the overall cost of your roofing.
Appearance – EPDM roofing creates a clean and pleasant aesthetic whereas felt roofing has a lack of durability that leads to cheap and deteriorated roofs that don’t react well to algae or moss growth.

It’s vital to work with a reputable company when you decide to have a new roof installed and with Hems Limited you will get a team with over 25 years of experience in high-quality roofing and cladding.
We have installed roofs on everything from large scale commercial buildings to public sector buildings plus domestic flat roofs for homes, garages and extensions.
