Understanding Underlayment When Getting A Roof Replacement

At Impact Roofing & Renovations, we understand that a robust roofing system is fundamental to the safety and durability of your home. A vital yet frequently underestimated component of this system is the underlayment. It acts as a protective blanket that fortifies your home against a myriad of environmental challenges. Our blog today sheds light on the significance of this crucial layer, particularly in the context of a roof replacement, and why opting for cutting-edge products surpasses traditional methods.


Decoding Underlayment in Roof Replacement

The underlayment is essentially the armor that lies beneath the visible shingles of your roof. It’s a pivotal aspect of a roof replacement, providing an extra layer of defense against moisture, winds, and other forces of nature. When you’re embarking on a roof replacement, the choice of underlayment can be the difference between a good investment and a great one.

While we recognize the industry’s respect for brands like Owens Corning, Impact Roofing & Renovations is dedicated to integrating only the highest quality underlayment in our roof replacement projects. Our approach ensures that each roof replacement not only meets but exceeds the expectations of durability and resilience.


The Shift Away from Traditional Felt Underlayment in Roof Replacement

The era of traditional asphalt-saturated felt underlayment is fading. Once a staple in roof replacements, felt paper is now being scrutinized for its lack of resilience and sustainability, particularly when it comes to a roof replacement in extreme weather conditions.


Pioneering Roof Replacement Solutions

Impact Roofing & Renovations has taken a pioneering stance in roof replacement by adopting advanced synthetic underlayment materials that promise unmatched protection:


WeatherLock® Flex by Owens Corning: 

This innovative product offers a robust, self-sealing barrier ideal for roof replacements in climates that test the limits of your roofing materials.

Pros: Enhanced sealing capability and resilience.

Deck Defense® High-Performance Synthetic Roof Underlayment

Another gem from Owens Corning, this synthetic option is revolutionizing roof replacements with its high-strength, water-resistant qualities.

Cons: An investment in your roof replacement that delivers superior performance and peace of mind.


Choosing Felt Underlayment: A Compromise on Roof Replacement Quality

Moving away from felt underlayment is a strategic decision by Impact Roofing & Renovations. Its propensity for damage under harsh conditions makes it a less-than-ideal candidate for a quality roof replacement.


Selecting the Ideal Underlayment for Your Roof Replacement

At Impact Roofing & Renovations, we specialize in tailoring roof replacement solutions that include the finest Owens Corning underlayment options to suit every unique requirement.


The Lasting Impact of Quality Underlayment on Roof Replacement

Inferior underlayment can lead to a host of issues, significantly shortening the life span of your roof. That’s why Impact Roofing & Renovations commits to employing premier underlayment materials in every roof replacement, ensuring your home stands secure against potential damage.


Underlayment: The Foundation of a Successful Roof Replacement
