Synthetic Felt Vs. 30# Felt Paper Roofing Underlayment

Which Is Best For Roofs In Denver, Colorado?

You wouldn’t consider buying a car without checking to see what’s under the hood, right? The same should hold true when purchasing a new roof. As your Denver roofing company, our highly trained professional sales staff always discusses the type of underlayment which is going to be installed under your shingles.

The underlayment is an extremely important component of any Denver roofing system. As with our ever changing world, technological advances occur to almost everything and roofing underlayment is no exception. For many years, felt underlayment had been the industry standard. Your Denver roofing company, Roof Worx likes to be on the leading edge of the industry and offers on a regular basis Synthetic Underlayment to our customers. Each shingle manufacturer has different names for their synthetic underlayment, but they all essentially perform the same way. Because of the extremes in temperature in the Denver roofing market, synthetic underlayment can offer benefits that felt underlayment cannot. Below is a list of benefits to utilizing synthetic underlayment.

  • It is breathable and helps aid in venting moisture from your attic.
  • It seals around nail penetrations preventing wind-driven rain from leaking through.
  • Synthetics are 600 times stronger and have greater tear strength due to its non-woven construction.
  • Roofing crews find it easier to install because it comes in 10 square rolls which weigh about 40 lbs.

This is 33% lighter than a roll of #30 felt paper which is a 2 square roll.

Just like a lot of things in life, what’s on the inside is just as important as what is on the outside. You can trust your Denver roofing company to make sure you are getting the best components for your Denver roofing project.
