Roofing underlayment is usually made from felt that’s saturated with asphalt layers. It can also be made from synthetic materials that offer exceptional durability, resistance and lifespan. Rubberized underlayment is a premium material that’s worth the investment since it can last for a very long time.
Regardless of the material you choose for your underlayment, you can expect that it will provide the following benefits.
Roofing underlayment isn’t visible from the outside, but it can affect your home’s curb appeal. By providing an even surface for the sheathing and shingles, you can avoid rippling and preserve the beauty of your home’s exterior. It’s important for your roof shingles to look aligned and uniform, especially if you’re selling your property, since home buyers will likely notice any imperfections in your roof.
Improved Fire Safety
Asphalt shingles have varying levels of fire resistance. Class A shingles are the most fire-resistant. But if you want your roof to further enhance its fire resistance, you need high-quality underlayment. If you’re uncertain about which shingles and underlayment to choose to improve your home’s protection against fire, consult a professional roofing company.
Added Weather Protection
Asphalt shingle roofing can withstand hail, rain, snow and other weather elements. But despite its durability, it will eventually deteriorate or suffer damage from a storm. The underlayment serves as a second layer of protection in case your shingles get blown off or suffer from cracks or splits during extreme weather.
Some underlayments are completely waterproof while others are water-resistant. All types of underlayment can act as a reliable moisture barrier during heavy rainfall.
Your roofing underlayment can be dense enough to add an extra layer of insulation for your property. It prevents outdoor temperatures from affecting your indoor comfort.
