"I use these regularly for repairs where either the old felt has deteriorated, when the roof water is coming in behind the gutter or is someone has put new gutters on and they are proud of roof line. They are a really good idea and easy to fit ( Before these were invented we used a 12" roll of DPc to do the same job, although these are better as the eaves tray have a angle into the gutter)
"We've just moved into a 200 year old cottage with a pan tile roof. Despite most of the roof felt being fine, and just as another reviewer predicted, the felt has rotted where it folds into the gutter. All I needed to do was lift the bottom row of tiles and gently push the tray under the old felt, making a few cut-outs to avoid any nails etc. The tray was easy to cut with a saw or by scoring it with a knife and then snapping it. I did need to adjust the 'bend angle' as my roof slope is quite shallow but this was easy after pouring boiling water on it."
"Nothing wrong with this product. It does exactly what it should do. The only criticism would be price. You can purchase this quite easily from a builders merchant for about two pounds in money per meter inc VAT....also in 1.5m lengths."
"Wonderful product: I've used these support trays to repair badly worn felt under pantiles. The usual problem with felt & pantiles is water puddling just before the gutter. Then, a combination of UV and freeze/thaw does a brilliant job of destroying the felt. End result: water on the wall plate and/or barge board etc, and even damp patches inside the house. Solution: remove the bottom row of tiles, trim back the old felt and slide these support trays under. Fix them with stainless steel screws for a permanent fit. To really complete the job, fit the comb filler to stop birds and the like getting into the roof space. Both these items are relatively expensive from Screwfix, as I've found to my cost!"
"This product is absolutely perfect where the existing under tile roof felt has degraded at the eaves. Installation is easy and once in place you feel as though your property is secure from the weather for decades to come."
"Great items, just push roof tiles back, cut a couple of inches off old worn felt, then push these supports under old felt. pull down tiles and jobs a good un. these supports sit on the wood facia and angle upwards to support the felt, then the curve sits in the guttering, easy job to do to stop water going into your soffats."
"Excellent product !!!! dont even bother to try and get round not useing this, some paople say you can double up on felt tiles for the edges but these tray take 5 minutes to install and also give you a strait line to work from so there is no reason to mess about"
"If you're replacing or capping facias this does the job and protects your investment. Good quality with the right combination of depth, stiffness, thickness (to slide under the existing felt - & GRP valley) and 'cutability' using utility (Stanley) knife or carpet scissors. I'd use again."
