With all the seams in a roof, especially with traditional shingles, there needs to be a layer of protection between the roofing materials and the physical structure of a house. That’s where roofing underlayment materials come into play. Traditionally, an asphalt-saturated building paper acted as a weather barrier between roofing materials and the roof; however, nowadays there are many options for roofing underlayment materials including everything from rubberized asphalt to organic, fiberglass to synthetic.


The right underlayment for a roof will keep moisture, cold weather and stifling summer air out, giving the roof a longer life. Many have anti-slip technology to protect the people who install the roof, and they can be exposed for up to six months while the roof gets built. If going green is important, choose from organic underlayments, as well as synthetic ones which can help the home become Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified.

Westlake Royal Roofing Solutions

While tile is ultimately the first line of defense against the elements on a roof installation, underlayments play a critical role by providing a secondary level of waterproofing protection directly on top of the wood roof deck. As a crucial barrier that contributes to the performance and longevity of the entire roof system, it is important to choose the right underlayment for your roof and your particular climate.
