If these roofs are protected from the suns UV rays they will last for a very long time, that is why they are sometimes covered in stone chippings or a solar reflective paint, in order to increase their lifespan. Bitumen has been used as a flat roof covering since the time of the Romans. There is a reason for this, when installed properly bitumen is completely water tight, flexible and very long lasting.

Recently there have been a number of new solutions to covering a flat roof which hit the market, notably EDPM rubber flat roofing systems and GRP fiberglass flat roofing systems. It has been interesting to see the manufacturers and installers of these flat roofing systems launch smear campaigns against the trusty torch-on felt systems. Yes, there are bad 3 layer felt jobs out there, they are installed by insufficiently skilled tradesmen, it is not the materials that are at fault.

Torch-on felt details

These smear campaigns are quite understandable from a marketing point of view as bitumen flat roofs still service then lions share of the market. The truth of the matter is that if any of the three mentioned flat roofing systems are not installed properly they are all likely to fail prematurely . There will be stories of bad rubber roof and fiberglass roof installations too unfortunatly.

A well installed 3 layer felt system will last in excess of 20 years which is not quite as good as the EPDM rubber of GRP fiberglass systems but, if the boards of your flat roof are free from rot, they can be reused with a 3 layer felt system, this is not possible with either EPDM rubber or GRP fiberglass and can mean that the bitumin felt option is upto 50 percent cheaper. If you do need to reboard the cost becomes comparable to the other two systems.
