CertainTeed® DryRoof™ SA Underlayment

In response to contractor demand for a high-performance, budget-friendly underlayment, CertainTeed has developed DryRoof SA. The underlayment is specifically designed to withstand high levels of moisture while providing contractors with ease of installation and the ability to offer manufacturer-backed extended roof system warranties.

The newest addition is lightweight and prevents water intrusion via watertight seals around fasteners and roof penetration points. Designed for use with asphalt shingles, this cost-conscious and self-adhering underlayment features a split-release backing for speedy and secure installations.

DryRoof SA is specifically engineered for use as a wind-driven rain guard along eves, roof penetrations, and valleys. It is UV-exposure-resistant for six months, adheres well to most surfaces, offers excellent elasticity, and has a slip-resistant sand surface to reduce the risk of falls. The underlayment can be used to cover an entire roof deck, as it serves as a valley liner, water penetration defense, and wind-driven rain guard.
