The Importance of Roofing Underlayment

Michigan weather can be brutal on your home’s roof. Which is why our Pro Grade shingles are made to withstand severe temperatures, fierce wind, torrential rainstorms, and blizzarding snow. To fully protect your home from the elements we use Pro Synthetic Underlayment.

The Importance of Roofing Underlayment

What is it?

Pro Synthetic Underlayment works to create a buffer between your roofs deck and the covering materials. This extra layer protects your roof’s deck from any moisture that manages to get under your shingles. Compared to traditional underlayments, like felt, our synthetic underlayment is lightweight and resistant to tearing and wrinkling. This material does not absorb moisture meaning that it is immune to fungal growth.

Why do I need it?

Even with the best roofing techniques and materials sometimes severe weather will find a way to get moisture underneath your shingles. Once that moisture comes into contact with your roofs deck, significant issues can begin to arise. Pro Synthetic Underlayment helps seal up your roofs deck before any shingles are installed, creating a water-resistant barrier and prolonging the life of your roof.

Where does it go?

We protect the first 6 feet of your roof’s deck with ice & water shield as well as the valleys, but we also cover every other inch of your deck with our underlayment. This creates a unified layer of protection for your home. It also works to protect your roof during installation in case any weather-related delays interrupt the process.

What Our Roofing Customers Are Saying

  • I had a new window installed in my master bedroom and after it was installed it was still leaking (confirmed it was from the roof) I honestly thought it was the window. I was at my wits-end I had a new roof installed less than 10 years ago and it had done nothing but leak and cause damage to a new finished master bedroom. I went multiple rounds with that company and had no resolution. I felt defeated. That's when Gary called and made a suggestion to come out and take a look at everything for me. Gary is one of the most kindest, polite men I have ever met. Not only did he calm me down from the verge of tears because no matter what I did I could not get a resolution from the previous company. He went above and beyond to make a plan with me. He took the time to talk to me in length and on several occasions to come up with a solution to correct this other companies work. As it turned out it was not only was it my roof that needed to be fixed but there was some siding corrections that needed to happen as well. The crews that came to my home were professional, kind and thorough. Gary even came on installation day to ensure that everything was going as planned. Not to my surprise they ran into a few issues but they quickly evaluated and resolved them and kept me in the loop as to what was happening and what they found. I am so happy it is not everyday that a companies VP will come to do these things for a customer. The new roof was done on April 30th and there has been a few storms since and not one drop of water has come through the roof or window. This is only phase one of things that need to happen at my home. I have two more exterior phases that I will contacting your company for. I cannot thank everyone enough for all they have done. I recommend Pro Home to anyone and everyone.
