What Are The Important Steps of the Roof Underlayment Installation?

1. Apply The Drip Edge

The drip edge is applied to an eave. It’s important that the drip edge flashing is cut at an angle, so it’s easy to apply.

2. Overlap And Cut Edges

The drip-edges pieces are placed together and overlap about 6” inches. Make sure there are no gaps and put them in place with roofing nails.

3. Roll Out Roof Underlayment Material

Depending on which material is used, like Tag & Stick, it must be unrolled so it can be applied free of bubbles or creases.

4. Start Applying  

This allows the material to be more secure. Place a few nails on one side to hold it down temporarily as the material adheres to the roof. Then remove the nails and apply the material to the other side of the roof. The process is finished once you secure it with roofing nails.
