Keeping your roof covered with a simple and effective underlayment investment.
As a homeowner, do you understand roofing underlayment and how to choose the best materials?
In many instances, homeowners simply hire a roofer and trust that they will use the best products for their home. In the same breath, homeowners also want to keep costs down while insisting that the best quality materials and workmanship are used. After all, building or maintaining the home is a big investment!
Roofing underlayment is a crucial part of the roofing structure, providing protection to your home. Tag & Stick offer an innovative solution to an underlayment system that saves time and cuts down costs – all the while ensuring that your roof is protected from water penetration.
We completely understand that the ins-and-outs of a building can be intimidating and complex. If you are hungry for insight into the home’s structural system, we would not want you to be left in the dark.
What Is Roofing Underlayment?
A roofing underlayment is a water-resistant barrier that prevents the roof from leaking water into your home. The underlayment is installed directly onto the roofing deck and works as a layer of protection from severe weather – which is especially important in South Florida where we experience regular rain and wind storms.
There are three main types of underlayment, all serving the same purpose of protection to differing degrees. These underlayment options are:
- Asphalt-saturated felt – a water-resistant flexible layer used as a basement
- Synthetic underlayment – includes fiberglass which offers improved stability and tear-resistance
- Rubberized-asphalt underlayment – creates a waterproof seal due to a sticky back and protective membrane
If you do not have a roofing underlayment, or if the materials used for the job are inferior, your home is at risk of water damage as there is no effective moisture barrier.
You should be able to rely on a qualified roofer to make the best selection of materials. However, this is not always the case and roofing can be an expensive project.
With this in mind, we understand that you may want to have a say in what materials are used to build up your home. Staying informed on the most cutting-edge materials is key!
