Underlayment prevents leaks

Tarco Specialty Products Inc. has made available LeakBarrier™ Ice and Water Armor, a self-adhering underlayment that protects a roof deck and building from leaks, ice and water dams, and wind-driven rain.

The product, which can be used under metal, tile or shingles, is designed for valleys, ridges, coping joints, chimneys, vents, dormers, skylights and low-slope roof areas. The underlayment is made of SBS-modified bitumen and features a split-back release film that is said to adhere to concrete, plywood, wood composition board and gypsum sheathing decks.

The product is available in 1- or 2-square rolls and two skid-resistant surfaces.
