Synthetic Roofing Underlayment for Any Climate

Synthetic Roofing Underlayment For Any Climate

One area where sustainability meets performance is with synthetic roofing underlayment. This innovative material offers a significant upgrade over traditional felt underlayment,  that benefits both your roof and the environment.

The US climate is vast and varied, with regions experiencing scorching summers, freezing winters, and everything in between. This diversity demands a roofing system that can withstand these extremes. Synthetic underlayment rises to the challenge, offering superior protection compared to its felt counterpart. 

Here are the advantages of synthetic underlayment for US climates:

Durability Throughout the Season

  • Temperature Resistance: Synthetic underlayment remains flexible even in sub-zero temperatures. This prevents tears and gaps that could compromise the roof’s integrity during harsh winters. Conversely, in scorching summers, synthetic underlayment won’t buckle or melt, ensuring continued protection from the outside elements.
  • Moisture Management: The US experiences a wide range of precipitation, from heavy rain to snowfall. Synthetic underlayment excels at repelling water.  Its water-resistant properties prevent leaks and the growth of mold and mildew under the shingles, even during extended periods of rain or snowmelt.
  • Wind Protection:  High winds are a concern in many parts of the US.  Synthetic underlayment provides superior tear-resistance, withstanding strong winds that could otherwise tear or detach the underlayment, exposing the roof deck to the elements.

Long-Term Performance:

  • Lifespan:  Synthetic underlayment offers a significantly longer lifespan. Synthetic underlayment can last for 30-50 years,  matching the lifespan of many modern roofing materials. This translates to fewer roof replacements and reduced environmental impact.
  • UV Resistance:  The relentless sun can degrade traditional underlayment over time.  Synthetic underlayment,  however,  is formulated with UV inhibitors that shield it from the sun’s harmful rays,  preventing it from becoming brittle and breaking down.

Sustainable Choice:

  • Reduced Waste:  Traditional underlayment is often derived from petroleum products and requires ongoing replacement due to its shorter lifespan. Synthetic underlayment,  on the other hand,  can be partially composed of recycled materials and lasts considerably longer,  reducing overall waste generation.
  • Lower Environmental Impact:  With a longer lifespan and potentially recycled content, synthetic underlayment contributes to a more sustainable roofing project.  This aligns perfectly with GreenPro Ventures’ commitment to eco-friendly practices.

Installation Advantages:

  • Lightweight and Easier Handling: Synthetic underlayment is lighter than the traditional ones, making it easier for roofers to handle and install, which can reduce labor costs.
  • Walkability:  Certain types of synthetic underlayment offer superior walkability compared to the traditional ones. Thus it improves safety and efficiency during the installation process.
