IKO Super Roofing Felt | 8m Black

IKO Super Roofing Felt is an essential part of any roofing construction. These sheets of tar paper are placed under the shingles of a roof to ensure a weatherproof and durable roof. The waterproof properties of this felt eliminates any possibility of leakage and even when used alone can survive and protect against the most extreme of conditions, even storms. It is usually a requirement in UK homes to have some type of Roofing Felt installed, so it is important to choose one that is built to last, this includes IKO.

This particular IKO felt is reinforced with polyester, has a guaranteed life of 15 years and is quick and easy to install.  Available in 8m lengths in a colour choice of green or black, or 10m lengths in green or slate green.
