Tag & Stick Underlayment Installation Guide

Proper Tag & Stick roofing underlayment installation is crucial to ensuring its effectiveness and longevity. How you ask? Well, improper installation can lead to water damage, leaks, and reduced energy efficiency, none of which are welcomed in a home or business.

To ensure that the correct techniques are used, an experienced and knowledgeable contractor should be consulted. This will maximize its benefits and ensure long-term protection for your roofing system.

For all of these reasons and more, Tag & Stick would like to share the best underlayment installation steps.

  1. With a half sheet of Tag & Stick, mechanically attach it to the sheathing with nails and tin tags, round cap nails, or approved fasteners.
  2. The eave metal needs to be then installed according to building codes.
  3. At intersecting Gables, the eave metal needs to be wrapped up the Gable and secured with approved fasteners.
  4. The second course of Tag & Stick should be applied with the adhesive portion directly over the half sheet.
  5. Secure the top edge, bottom edge, and side laps with approved fasteners.
  6. Compatible Flashing Cement will then be placed on the Woven Fabric that will receive a top layer of self-adhered Woven Fabric.
  7. Once everything is secured and aligned, the release film can be removed, and the self-adhered portion of the Tag & Stick can be stuck down.
  8. Each course of Tag & Stick should be applied by attaching the self-adhered portion to the mechanically attached portion of the previous course.

During the underlayment installation, it’s important to remember the Selvage portion of each course needs to be secured before the self-adhered Woven Fabric is stuck down.
