LayfastSBS® Roofing Underlayment
LayfastSBS® is a superior and competitively priced alternative to traditional 30 and 40 lb organic felt. The addition of SBS rubber to asphalt gives LayfastSBS® an elastomeric property that is not available in common felt. LayfastSBS® contains a higher percentage of asphalt for increased waterproofing. Its inorganic fiberglass reinforcement eliminates the rot and deterioration associated with saturated felt.
LayfastSBS® is available in three weights, 35-43-70 lbs/square. It can be used in lieu of 30 and 40# felt as an underlayment under shingle, tile, and metal roofs.
LayfastSBS® is ICC (formerly ICBO) approved and complies with ASTM D226 standards, which most tile, shingle, and metal manufacturers require.
We have developed a motion graphic video which you can use to present features and benefits of LayfastSBS® to your customers (Home owners, Architects, etc.).
LayfastSBS® in the better choice, in the long run.
Most of the quality tile, shingle, and metal roofing manufacturers offer 30+ year warranties – these usually cover deterioration of tile and shingle only. Since the underlayment is the only moisture barrier used in the assembly, employing an inferior underlayment with a shorter life expectancy will compromise the system’s integrity.

The majority of architects and contractors have realized the necessity of a better underlayment, such as self-adhesive membranes, for valleys and eaves. Most self-adhesive membranes are manufactured with SBS-modified asphalt, which is the same compound used in LayfastSBS®. By specifying LayfastSBS® in the field and a self-adhesive membrane in valleys and eaves, you are specifying a 100% SBS underlayment system throughout the roofing system and prolonging the waterproofing capability. In contrast to self-adhesive membranes LayfastSBS® is mechanically fastened, thus allowing the system to breathe.

For pennies more, offer a superior product to your customer. Typical increased cost to use LayfastSBS® in place of felt is about $0.02–$0.08/square foot.
Fiberglass reinforced (inorganic) does not rot like felt. Felt is reinforced with recycled paper – and you have seen what happens to paper products, like newspaper, after they are left out in the weather.
SBS rubberized asphalt provides a more pliable and elastic membrane. Minimizes buckles and wrinkles by laying flatter and smoother…saving time.
Side laps do not curl up over time. Does not scuff or tear easily and is less susceptible to damage from other trades.
