4 reasons to completely remove your old Roofing underlayment.  

In this post, HF Roofing Contractors discusses why you should have your old underlayment completely torn off; NO EXCUSES.

When it comes to a Full Roof Replacement, everything must be done correctly. After all, the smallest mistake can cause the biggest mishaps for your roofing system and yourself as the homeowner. With that in mind, when replacing your roof, one thing you should ensure will be done is to remove and replace the old underlayment completely.

1.Weight Concerns– It's essential to be mindful of weight concerns when it comes to your roofing system. Roofing shingles can be heavy, and when combined with any potential mishaps like snow and ice buildup or water pooling, your roof can become even heavier. The old underlayment can also contribute to this weight, which can ultimately compromise the integrity of your roof.

2.Roof Decking Inspection – Your roof decking must be inspected for any wood rot, weakness, or mold during its replacement. To accomplish this, your exterior service provider or roofing company must remove the old underlayment. That way, any potential causes for damage can be spotted and repaired before installing the new roofing underlayment.

3.Warranty Concerns – For your shingle’s warranty to be in effect, the shingle manufacturers will require a new layer of felt during its installation. With that in mind, failing to tear off the old underlayment before adding the new shingle could void its warranty since your contractor didn’t install the roof according to their specifications.

4. You Paid for It – Your insurance claim can pay for your new roof, and the service it pays for includes the removal of the old underlayment. Anything less than that would mean that your contractor didn’t completely work for what you paid and likely took shortcuts to complete the job.
