Icopal Classic Round Felt Shingles
Icopal Classic Round Felt Shingles|
If you’re looking for an attractive, waterproof coating for your roof, there’s no product more suitable than Icopal Classic Round Felt Shingle. Thanks to its durability and proven performance, it is a fantastic option for both domestic and commercial properties. Felt shingle has classically been used on chalets, beach huts and sports pavilions.
Because of the wide range of natural colours available, your choice of Icopal Classic Round Shingle will blend in seamlessly with any existing external building or organic features. The roundness of the design also contributes to the subtle and soft appearance.
The shingle can be easily applied to both shallower and steeper roofs, with just a difference in application methods to consider. For roofs between 15 and 45 degrees, a shingle underlay is required. For roofs steeper than 45 degrees, the shingle can be applied straight onto the roofing structure. Felt shingle can even be applied to vertical areas.
Whether you’re looking to invest in the assistance of a professional roofer or you like the idea of a bit of DIY, Icopal Classic Round Felt Shingle can be installed using Icopal’s easy to follow step-by-step instructions and list of the necessary building materials.
The application process is hugely facilitated through a unique ‘tab and groove’ location system, which helps to ensure the appropriate layering is achieved. Proper layering of each individual strip will ensure that the shingle remains highly water resistant, so you can rest assured that your roof structure won’t suffer from the adverse effects of damp.
The durability of Icopal Classic Round Felt Shingle largely comes down to the heavy weight glass fibre base, which is then layered with oxidised bitumen, producing a combination that is durable, waterproof and highly weather resistant.
On top of the oxidised bitumen layer is an upper surface, which is coated in coloured mineral granules. To ensure that the coloured minerals don’t fade under the sun’s rays, the shingle is given a UV resistant finish.
