Rhode Island Roofing Tip of the Month: Importance of Roof Underlayment

Roof underlayment is a critical component of your roofing system, even though it is not visible. When looking for the parts of your roof, you will usually think about your shingles since this is the common thing that you see. However, the underlayment also provides us the protection from water damages. It is made from a water-resistant material that is usually applied under the shingles to greatly enhance the resistance of our roof against weather elements.

How Important is the Roof Underlayment?

There are different types of underlayment. Be sure to ask the roofer about the option that they are offering. Roof underlayment can be categorized as water-resistant material and waterproof materials. The benefit that they offer will convince you that you should never ignore this part.

It Protect You from Moisture Damage

The underlayment will provide your roof with an extra layer of protection against moisture. Therefore, even if the shingles have been damaged, the moisture will not immediately enter your house. It should give you enough time to fix the missing shingles. Shingles may be effective in protecting us from the UV damages. Nonetheless, they will not be sealed on their corners that makes them less resistant against wind. This makes them vulnerable on tearing.

Protect Our House During Roof Repair and Installation

The roof underlayment will act as a barrier between the different elements all throughout the year. Nonetheless, you will particularly notice its usefulness during roof repair and installation. This will protect your house against the scattered debris when you are removing the old structure. It also serves as a barrier against water or wind during small roof repairs. By keeping the roof deck free from debris and moisture, you can greatly reduce the premature deterioration of your roofing system.

Provides A Uniform Look

The underlayment will provide your shingles with a smooth and uniformed surface where they will be attached. Regardless if you are choosing a synthetic or felt underlayment, this section will help in hiding any areas that will appear uneven. Otherwise this uneven surface will become visible after your install the shingles. This helps in creating a more polished look and excellent aesthetic feature.

Barrier Against Weather Element

The roof shingles are engineered to protect us from different weather elements. However, your underlayment also delivers an extra protection. Once the wind pulls out the shingles, you may still rely on your underlayment to keep the rain off our house. Hopefully, the protection will remain until such time that you are ready to replace the shingles. It also prevents the strong wind from entering our house as long as you provide the right insulation.

It is essential to note that underlayment may be required during roof installation. Contingent upon your location, there may be a local requirement or regulation that instruct you to add this layer before installing the shingles. In order to determine if this is required in your municipality, you may want to ask the local roofing contractor about it.
