We install 2 different types of roofing underlayment; synthetic felt or peel n’ stick (Ice & Water Shield). In Tampa Florida we don’t experience situations such as Ice Dams so we typically install synthetic felt; unless the customer prefers peel n’ stick as as added layer of protection. We also install peel n’ stick on all roofs with a 4 in 12 pitch or lower. Not only is it recommended, it is required by the building departments. The brands of synthetic felt we install are GAF Felt Buster, & RhinoRoof U20. Both brands of of equal quality. Our roofers prefer to work with RhinoRoof U20 as it is easy to work with, but in order to qualify for the GAF Golden Pledge warranty a GAF underlayment is required to be installed. If you choose to upgrade your underlayment from synthetic felt to peel n’ stick we typically install the Resisto Self-Adhered Waterproofing Membrane or GAF WeatherWatch® We can install any brand of underlayment your prefer but if you choose to upgrade your warranty to the GAF Golden Pledge then we will be required to install a GAF manufactured underlayment.
GAF Cobra Rigid Vent 3
For attic ventilation we typically install GAF Cobra Rigid Vent 3 which is a shingle over ventilation system designed to perform in high heat regions such as Tampa FL, while also keeping up with the beauty of the GAF Timberline HDZ shingles.
GAF Seal‑A‑Ridge® Hip & Ridge Cap Shingles
To save money many roofing companies will use 3 tab single layer shingles and then cut the tabs to match the shingles. Not only is this time consuming, the shingle colors from the tabs are not designed to match the shingles in the field. On ALL of our shingle roofs we always use a shingle specifically designed to be a ridge and hip shingle that is manufactured to match the architectural shingles installed in the field of the roof.
