It’s What’s Underneath That Counts

Sep 30, 2014

At Southernwood Roofing & Siding, we talk a lot about, well, roofing and siding (go figure). We’ve talked to hundreds of people at length about how a new roof or a new siding installation can increase not only the curb appeal of your home, but its energy efficiency as well. A properly functioning roof and siding also protects all the things—and people—inside your home.

As we get ready to install the roofing and siding at the new Cobb Island home we’re working on with our sister company, Southernwood Framing, we’re reminded of just how important the materials are that go underneath your roofing and siding.

In the photo above, you can see that we’ve wrapped the entire house with a moisture barrier that also functions to help control the home’s air flow. In this installation, we used DrainWrap from DupontTM—a moisture barrier that’s specially designed to provide enhanced drainage in areas subject to extreme, wind-driven rain.

You can also see from the photo that we’ve covered the roof with a roofing underlayment. This product from RhinoRoof does several things, including:

  • Prevents water from getting up under your shingles and causing damage to your home
  • Provides an extra layer of protection between your shingles and roof deck, extending the life of your roofing system
  • Helps your shingles lay flatter and more uniformly, reducing blow-off

Finally, we went the extra mile to install water and ice shields in roof valleys for added protection, doing everything we could to ensure that these homeowners would stay comfortable and dry in their waterfront home for many years to come.

Southernwood is the best when it comes to roofing and windows. I had 3 new windows installed on my house just as a test to see how they performed. I'm now going to have the rest of the house done. Don't bother shopping around, Southernwood goes the extra mile.

My wife and I are extremely pleased with our new roof. This is our weekend home so Southernwood handled the project, start to finish, while we were not there and did a great job. Very honest folks.

Ralph and Southernwood Roofing LLC was exceptional. There wasn’t a question that I could ask that one of them couldn’t answer. The roof, siding, windows, garage door all was done with precision. Definitely will recommend this company.
