ProtecTite Superior will not dry out or leech oil in high heat environments as organically saturated felts do.
Due to its synthetic construction, ProtecTite Superior is impervious to dangerous mold growth.
Advanced polymers keep the underlayment intact and prevent it from tearing, preventing leaks.
For greater protection from the elements, choosing a synthetic roofing underlayment is best because it’s moisture-resistant, and when installed correctly, it offers better protection from the weather compared to felt.
Epilay® ProtecTite® Superior Roofing Underlayment with its advanced engineering is highly recommended for mechanically attached, coated woven synthetic roofing underlayment for sloped roofs. ProtecTite® Superior, standard on our buildings, is specifically manufactured to replace the #15 Felt and #30 Felt, and it’s 25x stronger and 4x lighter.
ProtecTite® Superior’s GripWalk® unique gray top layer, which provides a cooler working surface, can be used under primary roofing materials to replace #15 Felt and #30 Felt. GripWalk® high traction walking surface permits easier steep slope walk-ability, even during high condensation or moisture on the surface.
ProtecTite Superior's Skid-Resist® anti-skid bottom surface made with advanced polymers helps keep the underlayment intact and prevents the fabric from tearing while it is being fastened, avoiding any leakages through the underlayment layer.
