Roofing Cost – Will I Be Able to Afford a New Roof?
Jul 24, 2019
Buying a new roof is a large expense no matter what the square footage size of your house. However, it’s not something you should delay if your roof leaks. Water can seep into lower parts of your house causing more damage, thus creating a larger expenditure. Yet, roofing cost is not in your budget and you don’t think you can afford it.

Synthetic Underlayment for Superior ProtectionUnderlayment is something we rarely think about in buying a new roof, yet is so important. It is the waterproofing barrier that covers the roof deck underneath all other coverings. Synthetic underlayment has an extremely high tear strength; it won’t wrinkle and tear around fasteners when exposed to the elements. This provides fewer opportunities for water infiltration. Additionally, synthetics are inert to mold, prohibiting growth. At Xterior, we only use a quality high-performance synthetic roof underlayment featuring a durable construction. This helps shield your home from moisture infiltration. Providing professional installation, we offer a superior workmanship guarantee with some of the best warranties in the business.
