Because Tile Roofs Are Not Watertight, You Need A Self-Adhering Premium Leak Barrier
To protect against leaks, contractors typically nail one or two layers of “tar paper” to your roof before they install the tile. But “tar paper” doesn’t provide much protection because it’s made with conventional organic felt, which can become saturated with water and reduce its ability to prevent leaks. So even though you pay a large premium for a tile roof, your home — your most valuable asset — is potentially left vulnerable to water damage.
UnderRoof™ 2 Waterproof Protection is a specially-designed self-adhering leak barrier for tile roofs.
It provides excellent protection from leaks that can result from tile saturation,
clogged gutters, wind-driven rain, or (in cold climates) freeze-thaw damage. Made
with flexible SBS-modified compound and reinforced with a fiberglass-reinforced
polyester core, UnderRoof™ 2 Leak Barrier applies easily and can
be left exposed for up to 180 days, if necessary. The heat-activated adhesive allows
the product to be repositionable for ease of installation, but seals tightly once
in place, providing a barrier against leaks.
UnderRoof™ 2 Leak Barrier is a key part of the GAF Lifetime Roofing System
The word “Lifetime” refers to the length of coverage provided by the GAF Shingle & Accessory Ltd. Warranty
(refer to the actual warranty for complete coverage and restrictions), and means as long as the original
individual owner(s) of a single-family detached residence [or the second owner(s) in certain circumstances]
owns the property where the shingles are installed. For owners/structures not meeting the above criteria,
Lifetime coverage is not applicable.
