VaproShield has announced it has a new roofing underlayment, SlopeShield Plus Self-Adhered. The water-resistive and vapor-permeable roofing underlayment is made of spun-bond polyester with a polymer composite coating. The manufacturer says it quiets the “concussion effect” of heavy rain and foot traffic during construction. The underlayment is compatible with metal roofing, slate or clay tile with batten or counter-batten substructures, and cedar shingles or shakes with VaproShield’s VaproMat. It’s designed for use on sloped roofs of 2:12 or greater pitch. Contact a local distributor for pricing.
