Tiger Paw Roof Deck Protection

Help Protect Your Home from Damaging 
Moisture with Premium Roof Deck Protection

Premium-Quality Roof Deck Protection Can Protect and Beautify at The Same Time!

Premium-quality roof deck protection should protect your home by providing a critical extra layer of protection between your shingles and your roof deck. It helps prevent wind-driven rain (or water from other sources) from infiltrating under your shingles and causing damage to your roof structure, or to the inside of your home. In addition, premium-quality roof deck protection will:

  • Help reduce damaging moisture that can become trapped on your roof deck
  • Provide longer-lasting leak protection than conventional “felts” 
    (which can rot or become brittle before your shingles reach their useful life)
  • Help your shingles lie flat and uniform, for a better-looking finished roof


There are many components to a roofing system. A complete roofing system includes field shingles, starter shingles, hip and ridge shingles, underlayment, leak barrier, pipe flashings and proper ventilation. There are many different options for each of these key components of the roofing system. Roofing underlayment is critical to the roofing systems longevity and overall effectiveness.

Urbach Roofing Inc. has installed virtually every type of roofing underlayment on the market in San Diego County and surrounding cities. After our many years of experience we have found our favorite underlayment, GAF’s Tigerpaw Synthetic underlayment. Tigerpaw Synthetic underlayment is not only superior for its application on the roof, but it’s much easier on our installers as well. Here are some of the features of the underlayment.

• Safer for Installers: It’s specially designed surface helps provide excellent walkability for installers versus conventional felts, or typical synthetic underlayment’s.

• Special Moisture Control Design: This helps remove nearly twice as much damaging moisture from your roof deck as the leading synthetic non-breathable underlayment. *As per ASTM D570-modified.

• Stronger: The synthetic non-woven construction provides at least 600%, or at least 7 x’s greater tear strength than standard #30 felt.

• Lightweight: At 40 lbs. per roll, it’s approximately 33% lighter that a roll of #30 felt.

• Installs Faster: The 10 squares, 48” wide roll installs up to 33% faster than conventional felts.

• Roll Length: 250 feet; Roll Width: 48”; Total Area: 10 squares (1,000 sq. ft.); Roll Weight: 40 lbs.

A quality roofer will always use a roofing underlayment on your home when performing a re-roof. Do not settle for a fly-by-night roofer re-using the old underlayment in your new roof system or cutting corners by not using underlayment at all.
