When looking to reroof, many homeowners search for tiles or shingle roofing, without giving their underlayment any thought. Instead of planning a complete reroof, consider improving and strengthening your roof’s underlayment.
Roofing underlayment proves a more cost-effective and efficient option
A total reroof is a once in a lifetime task (and cost) that homeowners take on thinking that it will last. However, the problem is not always with the roofing material itself, but with the weak and unreliable underlayment that is installed. A typical reroof can cost approximately $10,000-$17,000 whereas the cost of upgrading your underlayment from felt paper to a stronger, more durable material like SBS underlayment is between $200 and $400 entirely.
Underlayment acts as a moisture barrier, keeping the membrane watertight
You can’t rely on your tile roof to keep out the moisture that is produced by the elements. Water can slip through the edges and gaps without the proper barrier protecting your home. Layfast SBS has a rubberized asphalt composition that not only offers exceptional waterproofing, but durability and fastener sealing as well. It’s approved by the International Code Council (ICC) and carries a 10-, 15-, 20- and 30-year warranty.
A better underlayment is critical in the final roofing assembly
A quality underlayment can prove beneficial during the installation and repair of your roof’s tiles or shingles. This protective layer will prevent debris and other elements from accessing the interior of your home and also improve the safety of working on your roof. Underlayment is a crucial part of the roofing process and can help achieve a successful roof installation or repair.
