Underlayment For Colorado Mountain Roofs
Residential and Commercial Roof Underlayment
A roofing underlayment is typically a rubberized membrane that goes under shingles to prevent water penetration. It is the one piece of a roofing system that is expressly designed to be waterproof. Without a self-adhered underlayment, water from wind-driven rain or ice dams can infiltrate under your shingles and severely damage your roof—or even worse, the inside of your home.
TRC has noticed over time that rubberized or asphalt based peel and stick underlayments with either manufacturers like Grace or Weatherlock Flex through Owens Corning have proven themselves for years and continue to prove themselves in our mountain conditions. Manufacturers will produce products for the masses, but with our unique mountain conditions, one has to try various materials, test them and insure the products are performing the best they possibly can. These are some of the benefits of peel and stick underlayments.
- Easy to apply (peel and stick) membrane seals around problem areas
- Sticks to a roof better than any other product
- Protects to ultra-high temperatures, typically 250 degrees
- Helps keep wind-driven rain and backed-up water due to ice dams from penetrating your roof (considering ventilation and building science)
- Prevents leaks around flashing areas. (Vents, valleys, etc.)
- Seals around nails
- Has a non-slip walking surface
- Provides dual barrier protection
- Protects under almost all roofs
