The underlayment is an underlying component of your roof that plays an essential role in leak prevention. Similar to shingles and flashing, this roof component is prone to various issues.
Today, expert siding contractor A1 Siding & Roofing discusses the common causes of underlayment failure and explains what happens if you don’t address this problem promptly.
Causes of Failure
Low-quality materials are one of the most common causes of underlayment failure. This can cause the underlayment to develop creases and fail sooner than expected. That being said, even high-quality materials can fail. In this case, faulty installation is usually the main culprit.
Wet underlayment can put your home at risk due to excessive weight. This layer of roofing can buckle and even potentially give way when wet. Underlayment can also be prone to mold growth, which can cause health problems. In addition, leaks can form, causing water damage to various parts of your home.
How can you spot underlayment failure quickly? The best solution is by working with your trusted local roofing contractor for routine inspections.
