Roofing Product Tip: Synthetic Vs. Felt Roofing Underlayment
Prospectors during the California gold rush covered the roofs of their temporary shacks with roofing felt also known as felt paper or tar paper. Fast forward one hundred seventy years and roofing felt is still the most popular roofing material (now used as an underlayment) being installed today. But it looks like we will reach the tipping point in the next couple years where more homes in the United States will be covered with synthetic underlayment than with roofing felt.
