What is roof deck protection?
Thereof, what is the best underlayment for roofing?
Synthetic underlayment (technically non-bitumen synthetic underlayment) is the preferred underlayment of most roofing professionals today. Synthetic underlayment basemat is saturated in asphalt. The addition of fiberglass gives synthetic products superior tear resistance and stability.
Similarly, does roll roofing need underlayment? While it is not necessary to install an underlay with roll roofing, it is inexpensive and adds a layer of protection that makes it worthwhile. Roll out the underlay and tack it down, making sure that it is flat and smooth, not buckled or wrinkled anywhere.

Is peel and stick underlayment worth it?
The peel and stick underlayment product is the most innovative and, in my view, worth the additional investment by homeowners. This product is a rolled fiberglass modified self-adhering membrane that seals when punctured by nails. It offers the best defense against storms when shingles are ripped off the roof.
