Learn More About Shingles and Underlayments
Asphalt shingles are the most common roofing material for homes in Florida. They consist of three different materials, a base material of organic felt or glass fiber for strength, a surfacing material made of a mineral granule to protect against impact and ultraviolet damage while also providing fire resistance, and asphalt to serve as a bonding agent for all the components. When installed, these shingle components are applied to an underlayment of asphalt-saturated felts for extra protection for your roof.
We use Peal n' Stick underlayments for most of our roofing jobs. It is a modified peel and stick product that seals around all penetrations on your roof, sticking directly to the roof deck. Insurance companies consider it as a secondary water barrier, which may save you money on your insurance premiums. This is a highly recommended underlayment for homes and businesses in hurricane-prone areas.
