When you think about it, a roof has to battle a lot of enemies…
In the attic:
If repairs are needed, don’t skimp on quality to save a few bucks. Much of the damage associated with serious storms results from water entering the home when roof coverings or sidings are blown off.
This is why it is imperative that you have a secondary layer of waterproofing protection underneath the shingles and siding. If proper protection measures are not taken, the resulting leaks are the main cause of interior damage, as well as potential causes of rot and mold. Rot and mold can lead to major structural damage and even potential health problems for homeowners.
FEMA has published recommendations for the use of fully-adhered roofing underlayments, such as GCP Applied Technologies’ Grace Ice & Water Shield®, as an enhanced secondary water barrier for homes. In the event roof coverings are blown off or water manages to get underneath your shingles, these underlayments are the key to preventing water infiltration.
