"nice and easy to use, even gritting. Used as a top coat felt on a large shed and it did the trick, no ripping or tearing when moving around into position."

"The felt appears to be good quakity (certainly heavier duty than what is generally available in other DIY stores). Instructions were comprehensive and installation was straightforward. Can't tell you how durable it is for 15 years!!"

"This was a forced purchase because the roofing felt on my garden shed blew off in a gale. I fixed the felt to the roof using 20 mm galvanised felt nails, plus wood battens to hold the edges down at the gable ends of the shed. No gunge or adhesives. The roll size of 8 m x 1 m was about right for the size of the shed, allowing good overlaps at the joins between the cut sheets. Four weeks later, after a lot of rain, the interior of the shed is still dry. Fingers crossed, the felt will last for many years."

"Found this product, Ultra Durable shed felt, very easy to handle, my 12 year old son helped move the rolls to the back of the house! Cutting the rolls was easier than previous felt that had been used. Thankfully there were no tears or rips in the felt as had been experienced with previous roofing felts. Only time will tell if it is as durable as indicated."

"The shed felt appears to be a good quality product, and delivery was prompt. I ordered three rolls, which were delivered very securely packed on a pallet -- no damage to the ends as might have happened had they been sent 'loose'. I was lucky to have a couple of warm days in which to re-felt the sheds, which made handling the felt much easier."

"You can buy cheaper roofing felt, but this stuff will last and is better value by far. It's easy to cut and lay and it won't tear or split while you're measuring and fitting it. If you have to get excited about roofing felt, do so about this one!"

"This is a high quality roofing felt. It lies flat almost as soon as it is unrolled, and is exceptionally easy to work around corners and joints. Unlike cheaper felt it does not crack when folded, allowing much more flexibility around upstands etc. It is also easy to cut with a knife.
The roof I recovered has stood up to torrential downpours since it was installed with no hint of a leak.
Very pleased

"I have previously used a thick top layer mineral felt with sharp chippings that I secured with lap adhesive but it was hard to turn down and secure on a shed roof.
This product was a suitable weight for shed roofs and was not liable to tearing when pulled tight for nailing.
Used only clout nails without adhesive owing to wet weather conditions and length of drying time needed before applying next layer.
As with all bitumen felt knive blades soon get clogged with bitumen when cutting and have to be cleaned with a solvent to ensure subsequent clean cuts. The mineral coating is fairly fine and does not seem to blunt cutting edge too quickly or graze the hands.
