When you are having a new roof installed then there are many different aspects that go into the installation process. One of the most important aspects of a roof is the waterproofing and this requires the right underlayment.
What Is Underlayment?
The underlayment is the first thing that is installed when a new roof is being fitted. It goes above the roof deck and is installed before the shingles are put in place. Underlayment can prevent any rainwater from penetrating through into the roof deck. Roofers will install the underlayment quickly as soon as the roof deck has been put down because it also protects the deck before the shingles are installed.
There are several things that roof fitters look for when they are selecting underlayment for a roof:
- Easy Installation – this is essential so that the roof can start to be protected as soon as possible. We will look to use an underlayment that can be simply be rolled out and then secured to the roof.
- Durablity – It is important that the underlayment is durable so it will continue to protect your roof for many years after installation. This is the main reason that we only use the highest quality underlayment for our projects as we want you to be satisfied with the results for years to come.
- Good Amount Of Traction – This is important when the roof is still being installed. We take the safety of our employees very seriously and it is important that they are able to work safely while installing the roof. Good traction also means that the roof tiles are more likely to stay in place.
- Waterproof – The main purpose of underlayment is to keep the roof waterproof. We ensure that all the underlayment we use is fully waterproof and will remain this way for many years. We look for underlayment that sheds the water rather than absorbing it as this offers greater protection for your roof.
