By Cass Jacoby.  

Tuck® NovaSeal® roofing underlayments are designed with the contractor in mind; learn what makes these products superior. 

NovaSeal® roofing underlayments are designed to help contractors deliver quality roofs that meet Canadian construction market requirements, satisfying both the architects and trade professionals as they build multi-family homes and residential and commercial buildings across the country.   

The underlayments are lighter and easier to handle, with a 10-square roll only weighing 29 pounds for fast installation. Additionally, these underlayments offer exceptional tear and puncture resistance and greater roof coverage per roll than traditional roofing felt. Made from woven polypropylene and a slip-resistant nonwoven top surface, these underlayments offer superior waterproofing as well as excellent slip resistance. 

Learn more about the three underlayments TUCK® offers and why they are such an asset for roofing contractors.
