What should be included with a proper shingle underlayment?

At Right Rate Roofing, we believe in a complete roof tear off to ensure the proper shingle underlayment is in place. Your roof should have the proper seal, defense, and be able to breathe when finished. Owens Corning Total Protection Roofing System will provide that when installed by Right Rate Roofing.

  2. Synthetic Felt
  3. Ridge Vent

Ice and Water Barrier

What does an ice and water barrier do? It is installed at the eaves of your roof to help protect against damage caused by ice damming. While it doesn’t prevent ice damming, it will prevent damage to your roof and interior of your home. If ice gets underneath your shingles, it could cause interior damage. To ensure proper installation, Right Rate Roofing always installs 2 rows of ice and water barrier to make sure your roof is code compliant.

Synthetic Felt

What is synthetic felt? It is a self-adhesive material that sticks down to the deck of your roof. It helps bind the wood material and will become one with the wood overtime. The synthetic felt from Owens Corning will not tear, is not slick, and is water resistant. This is an additional layer of protection for the interior of your home.

Ridge Vent

What is a ridge vent? A properly installed roof should be able to breathe and that means your roof should have proper ventilation in place. A ridge vent will reduce heat and prevent moisture buildup in your attic. Improper roof venting will lead to ice damming, roof deterioration, and mold infestation.
