Underlayment prevents leaks

Tarco has introduced its LeakBarrier PS200MU Ice and Water Armor, a self-adhering, fiberglass-reinforced, modified bituminous underlayment that reportedly helps protect a building's deck and internal structure against leaks caused by ice and water damming and wind-driven rain.

LeakBarrier PS200 Ice and Water Armor reportedly can be used in high-temperature environments and features a skid-resistant, nonabrasive polyolefinic film. The underlayment reportedly is effective in valleys, ridges, coping joints, chimneys, vents, dormers, skylights and low-slope roof sections and can be used under shingles, slate and mechanically attached tiles, as well as metal roofing. It is said to be durable and feature high tensile and tear strengths.
