The roof isn’t simply propped atop the walls of the house. Actually, there are roofing underlayments, or additional weather barriers, inserted between the roof and the main structure of the house. Think of it as further roofing reinforcement. That means even if the outermost material sustains damage, the interior will remain safe.
Asphalt felts used to be the preferred material for underlayments. Eventually, contractors shifted to the use of synthetic underlayment because of the material’s durability and affordability. Today, even more options abound, like fiberglass and organic. It’s no longer just cost-friendliness and effectiveness that matter, but also environment-friendliness and sustainability.
Any homeowner can ask for these options from experienced roofing contractors in Charlotte, NC like us at CMS Roofing. As a GAF Master Elite® Roofer, we are well-versed in roofing underlayments, especially the synthetic type.

Features and Benefits
Synthetic underlayments are the preferred choice today because of their various advantages. For one, it is up there in the ranks in terms of enhanced walkability. The best part about it is that this characteristic applies regardless of the floor conditions.
Another big plus to this product is that it is so sturdy. Its polypropylene composition also makes it moisture-resistant. As experts on roofing in Charleston, we know that a moisture-resistant underlayment is important in protecting the roof from telegraphing and wrinkling.
