Peal and Seal is a self-adhesive, modified-bituminous roofing underlayment reinforced with a heavyweight, fiberglass mat for use under asphalt shingles. A split-back release film allows for easy handling and installation. This film peels off to expose the adhesive, which adheres directly to your roof sheathing.
Secondary Water Barrier for the best roof protection
A Secondary Water Barrier is a backup system to prevent water intrusion (through the joints in the roof decking) into the home in the event of the primary roof covering and underlayment over a roof being blown off during a hurricane. Peal and Seal as the underlayment with an asphalt shingle is a great roof system. Secondary Water Resistance, on the wind mitigation form is referring to a second way of preventing water from entering through a roof. Peal and Seal is a surprisingly lightweight self-adhesive, modified bituminous roofing underlayment. It's reinforced with a heavy weight fiberglass mat for use under tile, slate and asphalt shingles. Glass fiber reinforcement on the upper surface provides enhanced skid resistant properties for a roof.
Tapered Roof System To Prevent Ponding Water On Flat Roofs
Essentially they work as follows:
Insulated panels are placed below the membrane or final roofing solution to create slopes in the roof. Design plays an important role in the process of adding a taper system. Proper installation is essential to the system working and avoiding future problems with the roof. Poor drainage on residential roofs can result in damage far more destructive than either wind or other natural elements. Homeowners often under estimate the advantages of tapered roofing when evaluating the life expectancy of a roof.
Positive drainage is necessary to insure a safe, long lasting roof. Ponded water can result in costly repairs and even per-mosture roof failure, which is rarely covered under warranty or by insurance. Positive sloped roof systems result in reduced maintenance and less stress to your homes structure.
Tapered roof insulation is an excellent way to both help insulate flat roof decks as well as provide positive drainage. Applied directly to the roof surface, tapered roof insulation can prolong the life of the roof by assisting in the drainage of any collected water, as well as helping to eliminate any potential weight or load bearing issues.
