Jim Freedman, president of A.L. Freedman Co., Fort Myers, Fla., previously worked for many years as a roofing contractor in Massachusetts and for four roofing product manufacturers.
He says that though self-adhering underlayment has a long history in the North where it protects against ice dams, he believes the same logic applies in the South: Interior structural damage caused by water intrusion under a primary roof coveringâ€"whether caused by ice buildup, water pooling or windblown rainâ€"can be prevented with a secondary water barrier. Self-adhering polymer-modified bitumen underlayments provide a weatherproofing layer beneath primary roof coverings, and asphalt-saturated felts are water-shedding. "Shingles, tile and metal roofing are water-shedding but not waterproof," Freedman explains. "When a hurricane or severe weather blows off roofing materials or blows water underneath a roof, the typical asphalt-saturated felt underlayment does not protect a building's interior. "When Hurricane Charley hit in 2004, we looked at many roof system failures," he continues.
