Bettendorf's Most Reliable Roofer; Local Roof Repair Experts

Is it time for you to get roof repair or roofing replacement in the Bettendorf area? If this is the case, there are several factors to consider, one of which is the roofing underlayment. With all of the rain, wind, and hail we have had this year, it is critical to be prepared. Roofing underlayment safeguards your home against wind-driven rain and increasing dampness.

Everyday activities such as cooking, showering, and washing generate heat and moisture in the home. Exhaust fans pull the majority of the wet air into the attic, where it is vented outdoors through attic vents. The remainder of the heat rises and passes through building materials and your roof deck.

Some of the heated moisture escapes entirely through the asphalt roofing, while the remainder becomes trapped between the roof deck and the asphalt shingle. This constant moisture may wreak havoc and damage the wood roof deck. This is where roofing underlayment comes in, acting as a vapor barrier to protect your roof. It also serves as an extra layer of protection against wind-driven rain that might accumulate beneath asphalt shingles.

Traditional felt roofing underlayment was formerly thought to be a useful way to protect a roof from the weather. Technological developments have paved the door for synthetic underlayments, such as GAF's Tigerpaw, which is designed to help with ventilation and extend the life of your roof.

Synthetic Underlayment

Synthetic underlayment outlasts traditional roofing felt and gives additional benefits such as increased water tightness and traction control when the new roof is being established. It is strongly advised to utilize a synthetic underlayment for metal roofs or any shingles expected to last more than 40 years.
