Pros: strength, flexibility, price
" At little extra cost compared to basic roofing felt, this is 10 times better. It's much more robust, is slightly more flexible and doesn't tear anywhere near as easily as the basic green felt I've always used previously. "

Pros: great quality and easy to manage
Cons: none
" There were cheaper products available but after reading dismal reviews, I opted for what seemed to be a more expensive choice. The felt was easy to manage, clearly a quality product and with up to 15 years expected life was the better choice. Highly recommended. "

Pros: won't rip or tear even though it is thin.
Cons: none
" Used two rolls of this to recover by 10x12 foot shed. Product is quite thin but very tough. Being thin makes it easy to get neat folds on the sides and ends. Trims we'll with a Stanley knife. I used tar adhesive to glue the overlaps and it looks great. Does the job and fully expecting it to last the 15years stated in the label. Very happy with this product. "

Pros: tough & flexible
Cons: roll should be 250mm longer
" Granddaughters 1 year old (expensive) play house had the original felt ripped off by high winds, so decided to replace it with something more substantial.
This felt covered well, without too many ripples etc. We decided to reinforce the roof and use substantial battons to hold it down.
The play house now looks good enough for a Princess & I know that I won't need to touch it again until she heads off to Uni.
The only negative with the felt as most roofs are now nominal metric sizes and you need an overlap so to avoid serious wastage the roll should be 250mm longer

Pros: none
Cons: leaked from the first rain
" first winter and the roof under the roof felt is black with mould and visibly water damaged...all over. It would have been drier with no roof felt as at least it would have aired in between showers. When it was raining the water was running down the bottom surface of the roof.
Total waste of time and money + damage to other materials used in the shed. I despair, how do companies survive selling such sub standard products? ! Where to get a waterproof roofing felt?
Have reroofed a few sheds before but this is beyond a joke. "

" 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. "
