Icopal Coal Black Square Butt Felt Shingle
Icopal Square Butt Felt Shingles
Icopal Square Butt Felt Shingle is a fantastic option if you are looking for an attractive, durable and waterproof roofing solution. Thanks to its proven performance, felt shingle has long been a popular roofing material for both domestic and commercial properties. Icopal Square Butt Felt Shingle is classically used on beach huts, garden sheds and sports pavilions.
We only sell the Icopal Square Butt Felt Shingle in natural colours, making it the perfect choice if you want your building to blend in seamlessly with the outside environment. The square butt shape of the shingle replicates the appearance of square roof tiles, giving any building a highly attractive and uniformed finish.
The shingle can be easily applied to both shallow and steep roofs, with only a different application method to consider. For roofs that have a pitch between 15 and 45 degrees, a shingle underlay must be applied to the roof structure prior to laying. For roofs steeper than 45 degrees, and for vertical surfaces, Icopal Square Butt Felt Shingle can be applied directly onto the roof structure.
Whether you’re looking to invest in the assistance of a professional company, or fancy having a go at applying the shingle yourself, Icopal provides easy step by step application instructions which are simple to follow. They also list all the necessary building materials.
Icopal have also come up with a simple way of ensuring that the strips of square butt felt shingle are applied properly. The ‘tab and groove’ location system ensures that the appropriate layers are formed throughout the application process, which in turn maximises the felt shingle’s waterproof properties. With the felt shingle applied properly, you won’t have to worry about the adverse effects of damp.
The durability of the square butt felt shingle comes down to its highly effective layering. The bottom layer consists of heavy weight glass fibre, which itself is highly weather resistant. It is then layered with oxidised bitumen, which is incredibly water resistant and topped with an upper surface coated in coloured mineral granules. To ensure the colours don’t fade in sunlight, Icopal Square Butt Felt Shingle is given a UV resistant finish.
