i want to try out a synthetic underlayment in place of 15 or 30# felt. i am wondering if anyone has any recommendations. i have seen them advertised in as much as 10 squares per roll. i was going to ask my sales rep but i am not to confident in their opinions. are there any out there that are comparable to felt prices. also i do mostly steep slope so it has to be something that can be walkable even when wet. i usually use 3/8 staples on felt and i would like to continue to staple i don’t really like the green caps.
I have used roofers select, its a 4 square rool and staplkes will work. I like this product and have used it on family members homes.
Synthetics need to be cap nailed.
They are like a garbage bag on the roof, meaning they move around a lot and your lines move with it.
When it is wet or dewey you can’t snap lines because the chaulk doesn’t soak in.
They are only good for a long term dry in IMO.
I prefer the Titanium UDL if I need to use synthetics.
Roofers select is great stuff.
I dont really like them. felt works fine why reinvent the wheel.I agree that Certainteeds Roofer Select is awesome felt.
i use a ton of titanium UDL with no complaints.
becareful of wearin polyester(uniform) pants
i found that they dont grip it like blue
jeans or skin.
also if you put your tool down, well,
still if your lookin to get away from felt then
its a good choice…
I like gaf-elk “Shinglemate”. Used it once, and Im hooked.
thanks guys ill check those out. i have used roofers select but i didn’t buy it ill check some prices.
