Tag & Stick: Durable Roofing Materials
The roof is a home’s first line of defense against the elements, protecting your family and belongings. For a roof to perform its job effectively, especially in the Florida climate, it needs to be installed with durable roofing materials. A Florida home roof needs to be able to withstand intense heat, torrential downpour, and most importantly, hurricane season. Roofing underlayment plays a large role in making this possible.
Tag & Stick roofing underlayment is quickly becoming an industry go-to solution for roofers. Understanding underlayment and why it’s important may prove why Tag & Stick may be just for you!
Understanding Roof Underlayment
Roofing installation involves a number of different processes, one of which is the underlayment system. Roof underlayment is a key part of most roofing systems. Spread over the roof’s plywood deck before the tiles or shingles are laid, roof underlayment protects the wood from the outdoor elements. Acting as a barrier against the heat and moisture.
Living in Florida means that your roofing underlayment has to be strong enough to withstand intense heat, heavy downpours, and hurricane season. All of this combined with each unique roofing design means that choosing the type of underlayment for your roof is no quick task. You’ll need to consider the type of roofing deck, covering, materials, and method of installation.
The three most popular underlayment options are asphalt-saturated felt paper, synthetic underlayment, and rubberized roofing underlayment. While each has its own strengths, Tag & Stick may be the ultimate solution for all sloped roofing needs.
