Your roofing underlayment is there to protect your home from water that will get past the shingles. How? Because shingled roofing isn't a waterproof barrier. It is a water shedding barrier. It works using gravity, when wind overpowers gravity in a strong storm, water can be pushed under the shingles. So, that's why it's important. Many contractors get away with using the cheapest underlayment available --- tar soaked paper. Yes, paper! It is commonly referred to as felt, but it is not felt. Because paper tears so easily it is hard, if not impossible in some situations to install without tearing it. This is one reason we never use it. We use a synthetic underlayment, tested to be over 20 times stronger! Call us out and we will show you some samples. You need to know.
The ventilation is very important. Without it attic spaces get very hot. This can leads to a harder working a/c, leading to a shorter lifespan for your a/c, leading to sooner a/c replacement.... You can see how this is going. It affects a lot. In addition to these other things, it can void your shingle warranty. Sometimes builders have built it so poorly it is very costly to fix. Normally we can throw that in for free with most roof replacements. Oh, and did I mention that poor roof ventilation can cut the life of your shingles in half? Thanks for taking the time to read over this info. Now go ahead, give us a call so we can answer all your questions.
