I've been using it for 7-8 years. Not sure how long it was available before that.

It's more like $130 for a 10 sq roll. 15lb felt is 4sq/roll and 30lb is 2sq/roll.

There is significantly less labor installing synthetic underlayment and the brands I'm familiar with have open times of at least 6 months.

I'm certainly a Pro, but my customers have to "put up with" a temporary roof covering. It's not that hard to dry in a roof and I did it with felt before the synthetics were available. But there is a difference between "drying in" and "blacking in"\


My thoughts exactly

not really a question of ''putting up'' with temporary roofing is different than ''putting up'' with water in their house

and i have nothing but respect for the pro roofers on here,you guys know this

It was most likely done wrong. No more, no less. Unless he used a perf 15 or another improper underlayment, then he did it wrong.

Did the felt move in the wind causing the staple holes to enlarge?
Let alone did the felt get torn in the wind?

Sorry guys, not me. I wasn't saying anyone couldn't paper in a house and be water-tight, just saying I wouldn't take the risk with my customers.

What do these two things mean?

Dollar to a doughnut that felt was left over from the built up low slope roof on the warehouse and it is perforated felt for use in Built up roofing. The perforations are to allow trapped air out and strike through of the asphalt. It may also be Tar impregnated (Coal Tar) in which case you do not want it anywhere near asphalt products. Did the felt say it was ASTM D-226, type 2, Perforated on the label?

Also, the guys are right. You only remove what you can put back in the same day.

We have voted, and you have been found wanting.
