Mulehide roofing material vs. other materials?

14137 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Hates my roof

I need to have my roof repaired ASAP. Currently, my roof has asphalt shingles that were not properly installed. I've had a leaky roof every time it rained.

The contractor is saying that he would use a Mulehide roofing material, which is suppose to be self-adhering, no nails or anything. Does anyone have any feedback on this type of product?

Also, if you don't recommend the product and it's durability, then what do you recommend instead?

I live in Arizona, so I need a product that can withstand 110+ degrees Fahrenheit weather and high winds during monsoon season.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your response!

It seems like you like the Mulehide product because of the ease in labor and it's inexpensive.

Would it be the best product for a roof that has a mix of a low and medium pitched roof and in the weather conditions I described (extra hot and windy)?

The majority of the leaky area has a 3/12 roof pitch and the rest of the roof has a 7/12 roof pitch.

When I think that it is only an adhesive that is holding the material to the roof, I just think that the heat will melt that adhesive away after 1 or 2 years of our AZ sun.

Thanks again,
