Roll Roofing

This roll roofing product is made of asphalt saturated organic felt, coated on both sides with asphalt and surfaced on both sides with fine mineral matter.

In most areas of the country, a roof can't withstand exposure to the elements with just a layer of shingles to protect it. An additional underlayment layer(s) is needed to deter water penetration. 

Properly sealing out water before shingling requires these elements:

Laying a waterproofing membrane.

We start by adding a waterproofing membrane along eaves and valleys. These are high-risk areas for leaks; valleys due to improper flashing installation and eaves because of icedams. We used a thick, bituminous material with an adhesive backing. 
 

Rolling out builder's felt. Builder's felt (tar paper) is the most widely used roofing underlayment. It comes in rolls and its thickness is gauged in pounds. Typically, a roll of 15 lb. felt may cover about 400 sq. ft. and a roll of 30lb. would cover half that area.
