When most people hire a roofer to replace their roof, they have the shingles in mind. Although shingles are obviously integral to the entire roof system, most people don’t think about the importance of what is under the shingles. In part 1 of this blog we will discuss the importance of the underlayment which is used in the roofing system. The underlayment is the material that gets adhered to the roof deck. For many years felt was the standard underlayment and had become a common term when discussing roofing. In the past 20-30 years synthetic
underlayment has become the new standard due to the breakthrough in technology using polypropylene and polymer. Your roof should definitely have this feature based on the durability that synthetic underlayment provides. Synthetic underlayment provides the following

  • Water repellant
  • Mold resistant
  • High tear strength
  • Suitable for extended exposure to the sun, water, and wind, as well as human movement on the roof while work is being performed.

Crucial piece to the roofing system

This underlayment is so well formulated that it has become a crucial piece to the roofing system to ensure the greatest longevity to the lifespan of your roof.
