If you have ever wondered what purpose felt underlayment serves, we can tell you it has an important role in protecting your home from the damage moisture can cause. The roofer will layer felt between the shingles and roof deck as a second layer of protection against the elements. In a driving rain, moisture can penetrate between or under shingles. Ice dams in gutters in the winter also can trap water under shingles but the felt allows the water to run off. The felt acts as a barrier between that moisture and your wood substructure. In some instances, felt underlayment enhances the fire resistance of the roof shingles. Felt is a worthy backup for your shingles.
Roofing contractors know that a roofing job can get interrupted by unexpected rain showers and storms. In Carlisle, felt roofing will help protect the wood deck and home from water along with tarping. Once the felt is down, protection is in place while the shingles are being set. It also provides a smoother surface to work on. There are two weights from which to choose, 15 or 30. Our experienced staff at North West Roofing Supplies can help you determine the right one for your job and the amount you need. For superior backup you can even add a double layer if conditions warrant it. Our staff has actual roofing experience so they will be able to answer any questions you may have.
