That’s why we handpick only the best materials to use for our installations – because we want your roof to last.
Why Your Roof Needs Water Barrier
Most people think of the topmost layer of roofing material when they think of a roof. However, a roof is more than just the shingles, tile or metal you see from the ground. Underneath this covering is something that’s equally important to keep your home safe and dry: the underlayment. Roofing underlayment covers the plywood roof deck and provides a second crucial barrier of protection if water gets underneath the shingles. Without underlayment, any time there was the slightest damage to the roofing material, water could seep into the roof structure and cause leaks, rot, and mold. Roof underlayment also protects the wood from Florida’s hot sun.
There are a few different types of material used for roofing underlayment. Earl W. Johnston Roofing proudly utilizes Tag & Stick, a two-ply secondary water barrier underlayment system.
Benefits of the Tag & Stick Underlayment System
Tag & Stick water barrier underlayment utilizes mechanical attachment plus self-adhesive technology to provide better protection against water while resisting high winds. Tag & Stick can be used under any steep-slope roofing product, including shingles, metal, and tile, and offers the following advantages:
- Twice the thickness of competitors. Two layers provide the most protection against water intrusion
- Longer-lasting. Built to last multiple re-roofs, saving you money in the long run.
- Single trip to job site. Tag & Stick underlayment can be applied in just one step, saving time and money on installation.
- Meets Dade County uplift requirements. Tag & Stick is designed to withstand the high winds of hurricane season.
