Roofing installment requires ensuring the roof edge will properly be attached. Underlayment will be critical to getting an effective installation. Your roof should be resistant to strong winds that could hurt your roof.

For the roofing, the drip edge will go into two different parts of the roof. For the side part of the roof, drip edge will go after the underlayment and drip edge will go before for the lower part of the roof. First of all, install the drip edge along the roof’s bottom edge on the barrier of the water and ice.

Roofing underlayment consists of water-resistant materials. It comes into synthetic or felt paper products with two common sizes like 15# and 30#. Before purchasing, you should be familiar with the difference between these types. 30# is much more fortify and durable than 15#, and synthetic products are much more durable than felt paper products.

If you want to protect your roof most effectively and looking for the best way, then you should go for synthetic underlayment. Although it is more expensive than felt paper products, it is the most appropriate as well as a durable option to protect the roof for a long duration.

After selecting a suitable underlayment, roll that along the edge of the roof and fix it by using cap roof nails. The distance of the nail should be 4 inches from the outside edges and approximately 8 inches in the center. You should be careful that nails should not pass through the drip edge.

Roll out another underlayment in such a way that new row overlaps the previous one for at least 6 inches. So roll out and overlap the underlayment so that both sides of the roof sections up at the peak of the roof so install a new row straddling the peak so that underlayment finished up from both sides of the roof at the same time.
