Roof Underlayment

Longer lasting roofs that are less likely to leak

Longer lasting roofs that are less likely to leak

Replacing roof shingles is an expensive undertaking, so you want to do it right the first time.

If you want a long-lasting roof that will keep your house dry, you need three elements:

1. Shingles

These days, you’ll rarely find a problem with a roofing shingle. That’s because they’re all manufactured with high quality control standards. Besides their appearance, the main difference from one shingle to the next is the length of the warranty. The longer the warranty, the more expensive the shingles. Even if you choose lower-cost shingles with a 20-year warranty, you want the roof to last at least 20 years before you have to replace it.

2. Labor

Most roof problems are caused by bad installation. The roofing installer may be in a hurry and not paying attention to the critical details, and the contractor may be using less experienced installers who are learning on the job. That’s why it’s important to carefully consider the roofing contractor you choose. The least expensive contractors may not be the best choice, and may cost you more in the long run.

3. Underlayment

Strong winds can lift shingles, exposing your roof deck to damaging moisture. Rainstorms expose your roof to bursts of wind-driven rain that can easily find its way under the shingles. That’s why we have designed all our underlayments to be extremely tear-resistant to ensure its integrity at every step of the installation process.
