Roofing Underlayments - Storm Guard - Roofing Felt

15lb or 30lb felt ?

In order to achieve fire-resistant ratings (Class A or C), an underlayment must be used regardless of the type of shingle being installed.

A minimum of 2 layers of felt or 60lbs of base (2 layers of 30lb) is required for roofs with slopes less than 4/12. In such cases, the application must meet the requirements for low slope roofs. Alternatives for 2 layers would be 1 layer ice and water shield.

The difference between 15lb and 30lb :

  • We prefer the heavier felt for a few reasons. 
  • We prefer to provide a more durable temporary water barrier while in renovations. 
  • The 30 lb felt wont tear out while walking on steep roofs. 
  • The felt paper lays evenly reducing wrinkles in the roof system.
