Roof Felt & Battens

Roof Felt is a secondary barrier between your roof tiles and loft space. If the tiles have deteriorated, allowing water through, the roofing felt will act as a safety barrier, directing water away from your property.  

Roof Battens are the lengths of wood that are laid between the rafters to secure the roofing felt and to accept the tiles or slates when they are fitted.

Whilst Roofing Felt is robust, over time, it will deteriorate and require replacing. If your roof tiles have failed and caused water to ingress into the roof, you may need the felt to be replaced or even a section of batten to be replaced as well.

Common Problems with a Roof Felt

Barby Roofing is constantly in demand for patch repairs and entire 're-roofs' to the Felt and Battens. Typical problems include wet patches on bedroom ceilings or walls.

  • This could indicate that your roof tiles require attention but also that your roof felt has failed to act as a safety barrier.
  • Older properties, which had a very early type of felt, suffer from condensation due to the felt not being breathable.
  • Brittle or disintegrating roofing felt is a sure sign that the felt is life-expired and requires replacing.

Barby Roofing responded very promptly to a problem on my daughters bungalow roof. Everything sorted and a tidy job done in less than 24 hours. Would certainly recommend!

Peter Barrow

I have no hesitation in recommending Barby Roofing. They answered the phone, they came when they said they would and they did a thorough and professional job. The quality of their work was first class - they did some very neat leadwork on my chimney, for example, and fixed some tricky tiles back in place around a Velux window. Pleasant to deal with and good value too.

Joyce Higgs

I was very impressed by the professional way Barby Roofing carried out repairs to my roof this week.  The two young men were well organised and left my premises very tidy.  I will definitely be recommending the company in the future. Thank you.

Our 110 year old roof sprang a leak!!!.  A friend recommended Barby roofers to us and we were so lucky she did becauseTobias and his team were amazing and nothing was too much trouble. Polite, hard working and we cannot thank them enough for making us water tight. I would recommend them without reservation.

Barby Roofing carried out repairs to my chimney, valleys and ridge tiles. They did an excellent job and did some extra pointing work which was not on the quote! I was very pleased with the photos they showed me.
