What is Underlayment?

Today we are going to talk about what underlayment does and why we use ABC’s underlayment for each job. 

What underlayment is and why it's important?

Underlayment is an additional layer that is applied on top of the roof deck to help protect against most elements like rain, snow and wind. Most underlayment is either felt or synthetic. Here at King Construction we use ABC’s own synthetic underlayment for our jobs. 

Underlayment is important because it gives the roof an extra layer of protection against the elements that could harm the structure of the roof. Compared to the other type of underlayment which is felt, synthetic underlayment like ABC’s is a lot more durable. 

 

How we install underlayment?

Luckily underlayment, especially synthetic underlayment, is pretty simple to install and when done correctly can add a lot more durability to your roof. 

Because synthetic underlayment is lightweight its easy to take trips to get the right amount of underlayment for the roof. Once on the roof the rolls can be rolled out and with ABC’s underlayment they have marked spots on where to put your fasteners. We use roofing hammers to put our fasteners in. Once a roll is done and secure we cut off any excess product and the underlayment is installed. 

Our thoughts on ABC underlayment

ABC’s underlayment has been our go to for almost every shingle job we do. It's lightweight and is so easy to install. We usually only need a few rolls to get our job done and the size of these rolls fit each roof so well that we don't have to worry about cutting off or lapping extra underlayment. 

Underlayment is crucial if you want to keep your roof deck protected from the harsh elements of nature. Whether it is felt or synthetic like we use, underlayment is something you definitely want on your roof when you’re thinking about durability and safety. We want to shout out our friends at ABC for their awesome underlayment.
