Felt Support Tray Eaves Protector 1.5m Lengths
Our felt support tray eaves protector is a simple and effective product to prevent the exposure of the roofing underlay at the eaves, which leads to long-term degradation of the underlay.
What are the key qualities of a felt support tray eaves protector?
Felt support trays prevent felt from sagging at eaves level and subsequent ponding of water. It eliminates the need to strip a large section of roof to replace old, damaged felt. This product can be installed in new builds and refurbishment projects and suites all rafter centres.
As roofing felt perishes over a period of time, it is at its most vulnerable at the eaves level, where it can sag and allow water to collect (ponding), causing felt to rot, rupture and allow water to access the roofing void, which may cause damage to rafter timbers and roof structures. This is why it is important to use a reliable roofing underlay protector such as this. Our high-quality PVC felt support trays provide clear drainage points into gutters, directing water away from underlay.
What are the main applications of a felt support tray eaves protector?
The felt support tray should be used with timber fillets. The front “bobble” edge should be dressed down towards the gutter and either stapled or nailed into position. The first “bobble” of each tray should be used to locate the overlap, while felt should be dressed over the Felt Support Tray as normal. This will then provide excellent roofing underlay protection.
When used with fascias, the support trays are placed over the fascia board and directly nailed into the rafters using corrosion resistant nails. Adjoining lengths are overlapped by a minimum of 100mm. The roofing underlay is then laid onto the support tray ensuring the bottom edge does not go over the line of the fascia board and into the gutters. Fascia vents need to be fitted directly to the top of the fascia board prior to the support tray being fitted.
