Any roofing system needs to have an ice and water shield for protection, especially in New England. A roofing underlayment system can prevent water concerns in your homes including wind-driven rain, flowing water, ice dams, seepage, and other water problems. An ice & water shield product will protect your homes from these issues for the upcoming fall & winter and can be used under standard type roofs or even conventional asphalt shingles. Here is a list of benefits in using a water & ice shield product as a roofing underlayment.
-Easy to apply: The peel and stick membrane seals around the problem areas
-Sticks to a roof effectively better than any other product
-protects to very high temperatures
-Prevents wind-driven rain and backed-up water from ice dams from piercing your roof
-Seals around nails
-Provides dual barrier protection
-Does not dry up and crack
– Stops leaks around flashing areas (vents, valley, etc.)
Ice & water shield application works well in new home construction and on re-roofing projects. It can be used on the entire roof for extra protection but most often applied only where the problems generally occur. In home ownership, the reliability of the roof is of great importance. There are many elements that can cause great damage to your roof and anything under your roof especially in harsh weather conditions in the New England area.
