If you are building a kit summerhouse and it is supplied with felt you can simply buy rubber and use that instead.
If the supplier is also erecting it ask if they will use rubber that you supply instead of the felt they will supply. Would you be willing to pay a few quid extra for them to do it?
You may also have to sign a waiver to absolve them from any responsibility if the roof leaks at some future date.

I fitted my roof felt from side to side with a 4" overlap and a bead of sealant in between the layers.
It stood up to a tremendous thunderstorm a few weeks ago when we experienced flash flooding on the roads.

Should have bought a better one.

Felt, felt shingles, onduline, rubber, wooden shingles - they all ought to be options really.
