What is the purpose Roofing Underlayment?

Roofing underlayment, which prevents wind-driven rain or water from infiltrating under your shingles, tiles, etc., prevents damage to your roof deck. When properly installed, it can extend the life of your roof. All roofs are not the same though. You’ll need underlayment that is compatible with your specific roof covering.

Within the roofing system, underlayment is considered the primary moisture barrier. It is installed between the roof deck and the roof covering.

Underlayment is water resistant, it protects the roof deck from water damage and keeps moisture from growing both during the roof installation and the life of the roof. The underlayment is protected from UV rays and the harsh weather by the roof covering.

That is if the underlayment material has been properly matched to YOUR roof covering and has been installed correctly. Poor workmanship, and non-compatibility between the underlayment and roof covering can accelerate the deterioration of your roof.

Working with a professional roofer is the key to assure that this does not happen. With today’s advancements in roofing underlayment materials, it is smart to have a professional roofer choose the right materials for you.

Other factors that impact the choice of your roofing underlayment are:

  • Climate Roof
  • Design
  • Building Codes
  • Fire Rating

Remember your roof plays a huge role in protecting your family, your prized possessions, and the entire structure of your home.
