This perfect partnership doesn’t mean that Tag & Stick underlayment isn’t suitable for residential roofing jobs. On the contrary, it boasts a number of properties that make it the ideal choice for your residential roofing jobs.
Here are some of the questions we’re frequently asked regarding using Tag & Stick underlayment for residential roofing.
Does The Roofs Slope Affect The Use Of Tag & Stick Underlayment?
In the United States, there is no standard roof pitch angle, but slopes ranging from 2/12 and up. Tag & Stick underlayment is designed to work on all slopes. This makes it the ideal product to recommend to your residential roofing clients, whether they have the flattest or the steepest sloped roof.
Can I Use Tag & Stick On Any Shape Roof?
Tag & Stick is a superbly versatile product that can be used regardless of whether your client has a gable, shed, mansard, hip or any other shaped roof.
Does Using Tag & Stick Limit The Roofing Covering Material That Can Be Used?
Tag & Stick won’t limit your client’s choice of roofing material at all. It is a fully versatile underlayment that can be paired with slate, shingle, metal or concret/clay tiles.
My Client Needs A Complete Re-Roof. Do I Need To Replace The Flashings.
The answer is no, unless they are damaged and need replacing. Tag & Stick will work with all existing residential roofing structures.
If Tag & Stick Is So Strong, Does It Require Extra Layers? Will This Increase The Length Of Time My Workers Will Have To Be On Site?
No, in fact, using Tag & Stick will cut down on the time spent on site as the self-adhering process and the manual attachment can be done in the same site visit. Unlike traditional roofing that requires a multi-stage, multi-step application process, Tag & Stick uses new technology that requires the first and second sheets to be mechanically attached together. The pressure created between them forms an adhesive. The laminated two plies create a two-ply, water-resistant barrier.
How Does Tag & Stick Compare to Other Roofing Underlayment In Terms Of Thickness?
Due to its double-ply, reinforced fiberglass construction, Tag & Stick provides an impressive 115 mil thick underlayment. Most other products on the market are roughly half that thickness.
Will I Need A Bigger Team On Site To Install Tag & Stick?
As there are less steps involved in the Tag & Stick installation process, you can use smaller teams to get the job done in less time. This makes it possible for you to split up your teams and double the amount of work you’re able to get done at the same time, possibly even for different clients.
How Risky Is The Tag & Stick Application Process For My Workers?
Compared to the traditional methods of underlayment application, applying Tag & Stick is simpler, cleaner and far less dangerous. Traditional methods carry a high risk of injury, particularly due to the use of a kettle and hot mopping. Unlike hot mopping that gives off potentially toxic fumes, Tag & Stick is harmless and safe.
What If My Client Needs To Reroof After Using Tag & Stick Underlayment?
Because Tag & Stick underlayment is mechanically applied, there will be no damage to the underlying sheathing should your client ever need to reroof.
Which Product Is Going To Give My Client The Longest Lifespan? Traditional Or Tag & Stick?
Asphalt flux and reinforced fiberglass are the key components of Tag & Stick. This is a combination that is hard to beat when it comes to durability and long lifespan. Traditional underlayment is made from less hard-wearing materials and experience wear and tear quite quickly. It isn’t unusual for traditional underlayment to be damaged even during the installation process by the high levels of foot traffic.

Tag & Stick is the only residential roofing underlayment system over a base sheet that meets the South Florida Building wind uplift code requirements. It’s safe to say that your client’s roofs will benefit most from your use of Tag & Stick underlayment.
