Who Needs Roof Underlayment
When consumers think of a roof, they tend to think of what is seen on the outside: shingles or tiles. If you prod deeper, you will probably hear something about beams and supporting structure.
Did you notice what’s missing?
Of course, just like with everything in life, there are things that can be seen with a naked eye, and there are things that require a little bit more insight and attention in order to be identified and understood.
Welcome to the world of Syntex!
If the roof covering (like shingles) is the “coat” that clothes your home, the underlayment is like a nice sweater or a solid undershirt, if you will…
The underlayment provides the waterproof foundation upon which the roofing covering is applied. Just like going outside with just a coat on a rainy (or snowy) day is not the smartest idea, leaving your outer covering exposed to the elements without a solid foundation is not just careless, but can turn into a very costly problem.
High quality roof underlayment prevents rain from gusty winds (as well as water from other sources) from infiltrating under your shingles and causing damage to the roof structure or the inside of your home. It also prevents surface from growing mold or rot.
Furthermore, a superior underlayment such as Syntex Classic ensures that the house stays dry even if high winds damage the outer roof covering (shingles).
