Felt Roofing is known to be highly durable and usually lasts around thirty years.

Manufacturers added asbestos to roofing felt until 1992, in which the UK banned it. As a result, not all roofing felt will contain asbestos. People who carry out work on asbestos material must receive the correct information, instruction and training, so be sure to discuss with your roofer if the roofing felt complies with the laws in place.
