  4. 4. IT IS CONSTRUCTED BETWEEN YOUR ROOF DECKING (BOTTOM) AND TILES OR SHINGLES (TOP).
  5. 5. IT PROTECTS YOUR HOME FROM ANY WATER OR MOISTURE THAT GETS PAST YOUR TILES OR SHINGLES.
  6. 6. IT PREVENTS MOISTURE BUILD UP BETWEEN YOUR ATTIC AND THE ROOFING MATERIAL THAT COULD CAUSE SIGNIFICANT WATER DAMAGE TO YOUR ROOF DECKING.
  7. 7. IT ALSO PROVIDES A PROTECTIVE MEMBRANE BETWEEN THE SAP FROM THE WOOD IN YOUR DECKING AND THE SHINGLE RESTING ABOVE IT.
