    Hi all,

    Just noticed that my garage roof has been leaking. It must have been during the heavy downpour the other day. Being as I work for a large builders merchants ill have no issues getting replacement felt for little cost, but am I able to use normal green mineral felt on a roof that is at the moment laid with felt and shingle/gravel?

    Thanks

    If you want to overlay you'll need the old chippings off and the surface sound and dry.

    As above.

    But i'd consider total replacement once you "discover" a leaking felted roof.

    "green mineral felt" can refer to a number of different felts - typically, it refers to shed felt.

    Post pics & you will get more specific advice from on here.
