Since 1983 MBTechnology has been committed to a single idea of engineering affordable premium roofing and underlayment systems that are also high performing. Layfast SBS is a fiberglass reinforced underlayment manufactured with synthetic rubber modified asphalt, or SBS, and is one of MBTechnology’s most important innovations.
Most quality tile shingle and metal roofing manufacturers offer 30-plus year warranties that typically cover deterioration of the tile or shingle only. However, underlayment beneath the outer shingle provides a critical moisture barrier. All too often, inferior low life-expectancy underlayments, such as traditional roofing felt paper, compromise the system’s waterproofing ability and overall durability. Layfast SBS rubberized asphalt composition provides superior waterproofing, durability and fastener sealing. Its fiberglass reinforced base resists rot and wear better than traditional felt underlayments, making Layfast SBS one of the strongest and most durable watertight roofing underlayment available for your home.
Best of all, Layfast SBS complies with and exceeds the physical requirements established by the international code council for underlayment for tile shingle and metal roofs and is covered by one of the best warranties in the business. Make the smart choice to upgrade your underlayment to Layfast SBS for a more resilient roof.
