Granulated Self-Adhered Roofing Underlayment Features Slip-Resistant Surface

RhinoRoof Granulated Self-Adhered Roofing Underlayment The RhinoRoof brand of synthetic roofing underlayment now includes comprehensive roof deck protection. Comprised of the most advanced formulations for self-adhered roofing technology, new RhinoRoof Granulated Self-Adhered Roofing underlayment features a granulated, slip-resistant surface. The new synthetic underlayment offering complements contractors’ safety programs by providing a slip-resistant surface material on roofs of varying slopes. When paired with RhinoRoof U20 synthetic underlayment, the Granulated Self-Adhered Roofing Underlayment provides a system approach to protecting the entire roof deck against ice dams and wind-driven rains.

“RhinoRoof Granulated Self-Adhered Roofing Underlayment provides protection in the most vulnerable areas of the roof such as eaves and valleys,” said Jim Stange, Product Manager for Self-Adhered Underlayment. He noted the “peel and stick” product offers excellent adhesion across a broad temperature range. “The new granulated self-adhesive underlayment has been tested for adhesion at 40F and 75F and exceeds D1970 standards,” he said. The product can be left exposed for up to 30 days. Even at cold temperatures, the RhinoRoof® Granulated Self-Adhered Roofing Underlayment adheres to the roof deck, supporting flexible installation during seasons when temperatures can fluctuate widely.

Accroding to the company, multiple features contribute to the performance of RhinoRoof Granulated Self-Adhered Roofing Underlayment. The granulated surface features a 3-inch taped selvage edge and a polymer modified asphalt backing. The split sheet peel-away release liner facilitates easy installation on a broad range of roof designs. The product is packaged in a shrink-wrapped poly-sleeve, making it less susceptible to damage from the elements and easy to carry on the jobsite.

InterWrap Teams up with Habitat for Humanity to Build Homes

InterWrap teamed up with Habitat for Humanity to build homes and hope in partnership with more than 200 low-income families during Habitat for Humanity’s annual Home Builders Blitz. This was InterWrap’s first collaboration with Habitat, and the company is donating nine skids of RhinoRoof U20, equivalent to more than 500 rolls.

“It’s a great opportunity for professional home builders and suppliers to collaborate and help build homes for families in need,” says Scott Fisher InterWrap’s SE regional sales manager. “Our contribution of RhinoRoof underlayment provides these homes with a secondary layer of roofing protection should the primary roofing fail for any reason temporarily protecting the homeowner’s interior and valued possessions from water damage.”

During the annual building event, Habitat for Humanity recruited and partnered with local professional builders, who in turn provided labor, funding and materials while coordinating the project through its completion. This partnership allows Habitat affiliates to serve more families without the usual tasks of raising funds and recruiting volunteers.

Habitat for Humanity has hosted four national Home Builders Blitz events since 2006, with nearly 1,400 homes having been constructed by construction professionals.
