Underlayment products help block water from the roof deck and out of the home to help prevent rot, mold, and water damage. Depending on the pitch of the roof and snow accumulation, sometimes, an Ice and Water barrier underlayment is also recommended in the valleys of your roof. Ice and Water Shield helps prevent water that may want to travel uphill due to ice damming.
