As a Florida state certified roofing contractor, it is important for us to provide our customers with the best roofing options available in the market. One of the most important aspects of any roofing project is the underlayment, which is a layer of material that sits between the roofing material and the roof deck. While traditional tar paper has been the standard underlayment for many years, we are now recommending a newer and superior option – synthetic underlayment.
What is synthetic underlayment? Synthetic underlayment is a high-tech alternative to traditional tar paper. It is made of polypropylene or polyester fabric that is saturated or coated with asphalt. Compared to traditional tar paper, synthetic underlayment is stronger, more durable, and more resistant to tears and punctures.
Why is synthetic underlayment better than tar paper underlayment?
In conclusion, while traditional tar paper has been used as the standard underlayment for many years, synthetic underlayment is now the superior option for roofing projects. It is more durable, longer-lasting, better for waterproofing, safer, and more environmentally friendly.
At Taylor’s Roofing, we recommend and use synthetic underlayment for all our asphalt shingle roofing projects to provide our customers with the best quality roofing systems available.
