Modified asphalt use in roofing applications

January 1, 2019 6:15 PM

one use for modified asphalt in roofing applications is in waterproofing underlayment. An underlayment is a layer of material placed between the roof deck and the exterior surfacing material (typically shingles, wood shake, metal, tile, slate or cap sheet). It is a critical, though often overlooked, component of any complete roofing system.
