Cost – flat roof made from felt is the best option in terms of value
Suitability – They suit any size of roof and can be made to fit most shapes. The new bitumen allows for shrinkage and expansion and is a modern invention – nothing like the old flat roofs from 30 years ago. Not ideal for walking across on a hot summer’s day though as this would damage the roof.
Damage resistance – Hot weather makes the roof susceptible if you walk across it without protecting it with boards to spread the weight. Ideally a flat roof should not be walked on without protection.
Repairability – If you stick to a plain finish then it is ok if the roof needs patching. This is one of the advantages of felt.
Appearance – There are several different colour finishes and they do look better than a rubber roof in my opinion.
Installation – The main thing to say is that this is not DIY as there is a hot blow torch required. That’s why you need a professional who is insured!

When I drive along sometimes I see fly tipping. It makes me really mad when I see roof tiles or felt (or anything) that has been dumped in a lay by just to save a few quid.
When I do a job, I price in my travel to the tip and make sure I pay what is due for the rubbish to be dealt with properly.
When you get a quote for a flat roof make sure you use someone who disposes of the rubbish properly. There’s nothing worse than a cowboy operator undercharging because he doesn’t do ALL the work necessary to be a proper trader.
