Underlayments

15lb or 30lb felt ?

In order to achieve fire-resistant ratings (Class A or C), an underlayment must be used regardless of the type of shingle being installed.

A minimum of 2 layers of felt is required for roofs with slopes less than 4/12. In such cases, the application must meet the requirements for low slope roofs. Alternatives for 2 layers would be 1 layer ice and water shield.

The difference between the two :

We prefer the heavier felt for a few reasons. One, we prefer to provide a more durable temporary water barrier while in renovations. Two, the 30 lb felt wont tear out while walking on steep roofs. Three, the paper lays evenly reducing wrinkles in the roof system.

 

NO. 30 ASTM -- Features a premium quality TAMKO organic felt that is saturated with asphalt. Accepted for use as an underlayment felt to be applied over the deck prior to the installation of TAMKO asphalt shingles. ASTM D-226, Type II. 72'x36" 216 sq. ft. per roll
