Weathertight roofing materials give cost-effective protection in winter months


Weathertight roofing materials give cost-effective protection in winter months

The winter months are a testing time for all buildings & particularly roofs with frosts, gales and heavy rain all taking their toll but using BBA certified roofing products such as Weathertight Durable Roof Underlay is one way to get the best protection you can.

Weathertight is a composite waterproof under slate and tile barrier membrane designed for use on most types of ventilated cold or warm pitched roofs, which protects against the ingress of wind blown rain and snow. It can be used both to provide temporary protection during construction, and then on as insulation during the life of the building.

Weathertight roof insulation is produced by Technical Textile Services Ltd (TTS Ltd) in Manchester, UK and is lightweight and easy to handle as well as being Bitumen free, clean and easy to cut & install. Brian Whitney of TTS comments: “When builders and home owners are considering insulation systems, they should seriously think about Weathertight because it is a cost-effective way to insulate and protect roofs.”

Brian continues: “Weathertight has a nonwoven fabric backing that holds condensation, which helps to prevent problems caused by the run-off of condensation on to roof timbers. It can be used on ventilated cold roofs where roofing insulation is at ceiling level or boarded and on ventilated warm roofs where battens and counter battens are used to secure the underlay above the insulation.”

One building firm that has used Weathertight roofing products and is happy to recommend them is ACR of Kent, who say: “We used this product on a prestige refurbishment job in Tonbridge, Kent. It felt strong and substantial and laid well and quickly without any problems. In short, we consider Weathertight Durable Roof Underlay to be as good as any other BBA certified synthetic roofing felt we have used previously - but with the important added benefit of being cheaper in price.”

Insulation installers working to BS 5534 and BS 8000 Part 6 need not be concerned about using Weathertight roofing supplies for the first time because full details are given on including information on laying, lapping and possible repairs.
