There are many components that make up a roof. If one part is worn, warped, or rotting, it will cause the other parts to deteriorate more quickly as well. This is why residents should consider the innovative technique of “lift and relay.” Every roof is equipped with something called an “underlayment,” which is set below the shingles or tiles of a roof. If the underlayment is damaged, usually by water or old age, it should be removed. Then, a fresh layer of underlayment can be attached to the wood decking before the tiles and shingles are set back on top.
The battens, which are used to properly raise the shingles or tiles off of the roof deck, will also be removed by this process. Once they are replaced, they can be more efficient at decreasing the levels of heat absorbed in the attic, cutting energy costs at the same time.

Because roofs with damaged underlayment will have a greatly reduced integrity, it is important to perform lift and relay sooner rather than later. Residents can avoid an untimely collapse by being proactive in scheduling this crucial service.
Critical signs that lift and relay services are needed include:
The Typical Lifespan of Roofing Underlayment
In addition to recognizing the most obvious signs that roofing underlayment is in trouble, it is important to know how long underlayment usually lasts. Underlayment does not always show impending signs of collapse, especially due to its hidden location. Directly laid on top of the roof deck, underlayment is designed to help secure the roof from inclement natural elements. However, since it is constructed from plywood, its lifespan of 20 to 30 years can be negatively influenced by exposure to water.
