There are many different roofing underlayment options for you to consider in Calgary. The underlayment is responsible for preventing water from going underneath your shingles and causing roof damage to both the structure as well as the inside of your home. This extra layer of protection between the roof deck and the shingles is also critical against wind damage.
On a slope roof, there are three types of underlayment that are commonly used. This includes felt paper, rubberized asphalt, and synthetic felt.
Synthetic felt has become the most common underlayment within residential applications in Calgary AB.
There are many synthetic underlay is available, ranging from polypropylene polyethylene. These are low weight and high strain, providing a number of advantages. These synthetic underlay’s are also resistant to mould and fungus, and won’t absorb moisture. They are also UV resistant and can be left exposed to the elements for long periods of time.
Rubberized asphalt is an underlay with an adhesive backing. Because it has rubberlike qualities, it provides a strong seal around roof edges, nails, and much more. It also provides an ice and water shield, ensuring that every nail within your roof is self-sealed and therefore watertight.
