NovaSeal® ULTRA is the underlayment that you can trust to deliver more to your jobsite by offering additional safety for your crews and high performance. 

NovaSeal® roofing underlayments by TUCK® are designed to help contactors deliver quality roofs that meet Canadian construction market requirements. When they say “build on trust”, they mean it! NovaSeal® roofing underlayments satisfy the needs of both architects and trade professionals as they build residential and multi-family homes, and commercial buildings across the country.   

This commitment towards homeowner protection and contractor success is clear in their synthetic underlayment NovaSeal® ULTRA. NovaSeal® ULTRA forms a barrier in a roofing system that helps protect residential or commercial steep-slope roofs in the most extreme weather conditions and deliver exceptional long-term weather barrier performance. It is made from a woven polypropylene and a slip resistant nonwoven top surface that makes it completely waterproof.  

NovaSeal® ULTRA synthetic roof underlayment delivers exceptional long-term weather barrier performance compared to traditional asphalt felt products. NovaSeal® ULTRA is designed for use under metal, asphalt shingles, synthetic shingles, primed cedar shakes and tiles.    

Additional benefits specific to NovaSeal® ULTRA include: 

  • Durable, woven construction holds up to rugged tile, metal and slate installs. 

  • Strong and pliable material that performs in the most extreme temperatures. 

  • Up to 20 times stronger than felt underlayments. 

  • Will not crack or dry out under metal or tile. 

  • Exceptional tear and puncture resistance. 

  • Withstands UV exposure for up to 180 days. 

  • Horizontal marker for overlap. 

  • Excellent slip resistant properties. 

  • Lighter weight and easier to handle (10-square roll is only 35 pounds).  

  • Greater roof coverage per roll than traditional roofing felt. 

  • Contributes to LEED points, 100% recyclable. 

  • Tan surface keeps roof cooler to work on. 

Additionally, NovaSeal® ULTRA comes with a lifetime warranty and meets a comprehensive list of building codes like: 

  • ICC-ES AC 188 Approved 

  • Miami-Dade County Approve 

  • Florida Building Code Approved 

  • Texas Department of Insurance Listed 

  • Class A ASTM E108
