It’s impossible to have a roof without underlayment. This component blocks the moisture that asphalt shingles miss, protecting your attic and living spaces from water damage. Every roofing system has a durable and dependable underlayment that ages with the roof.
In this post, Fields Roof Service, Inc. discusses how important an underlayment’s role is in roofing systems.
Your roof would look drastically different without its underlayment. An underlayment gives an even surface for the roof shingles, giving them a smooth and uniform appearance on the outside. This means excellent curb appeal for your home, which is essential if you have plans of selling your property.
Excellent underlayment improves your roof’s fire resistance. High-quality underlayment can slow the progress of fire, especially if combined with fire-resistant Class A shingles. If you want enhanced protection against fire, ask your roofing contractor about the roofing and underlayment materials suitable for your home.
Your roof underlayment will serve as a second layer of protection during extreme weather conditions. If your asphalt shingles get blown off during a storm, the underlayment will ensure won’t get into your attic and leak into your indoor spaces.
The material of the underlayment must be water-resistant or waterproof. Asphalt-saturated felt, rubberized asphalt or synthetic underlayment are the most commonly used materials for roofing underlayment.
Dense underlayment adds an extra layer of insulation to your home. It helps keep your indoor temperatures stable as it repels outside air. As a result, your HVAC will work more efficiently and consume less energy while providing you with comfortable temperatures.
