Superior-quality roof deck protection should protect your home by providing a critical extra layer of protection between your shingles and your roof deck. Tiger Paw Roof Deck Protection helps prevent wind-driven rain (or water from other sources) from infiltrating under your shingles and causing damage to your roof structure, or to the inside of your home.
  • Synthetic, non-woven construction provides at least 600% (i.e. 7-times) greater tear strength than standard #30 felt in addition to water resistance
  • Helps remove nearly twice as much damaging moisture from your roof deck as the leading synthetic non-breathable underlayment
  • Tiger paw roof deck protection resists wrinkling and buckling that can telegraph through your roof shingles and detract from its finished appearance
  • Less chance of blow-off, up to 129% higher nail pull-through strength than #30 felt helps keep the product in place
  • Safer for installers, specially designed surface helps provide excellent walkability for installers versus conventional felts or typical synthetic underlayment
  • Deck-side coating, anti-skid back coating helps improve walkability, while also helping to keep the roll stationary during installation
  • Stronger, synthetic, non-woven construction provides at least 600% (i.e. 7 times) greater tear strength than standard #30 felt
  • Cooler to work with, light-grey surface is cooler in hot weather than conventional black felts
  • Flexible application, recommended for use with asphaltic shingle roof systems, may also be used with non-asphaltic systems, such as slate, wood, metal, or tile
  • Versatile, can withstand UV degradation for 180 days, if necessary

Questions & Answers

can tiger paw be used for tile underlayment

If i put nails in the roof tile will it seal as it enters the tiger paw protecting plywood ?
Asked by: petey
No, It will not. Only something like Grace (ice and water) or Henry Blue Shield will do that.

If this is an "Extra Layer of Protection", what is it supposed to be used with as the primary layer of protection?

The description says this product is an "Extra Layer of Protection", what is it supposed to be used with as the primary layer of protection? The description also compares it properties to roof felt, as superior, yet does not say it replaces felt, as it is an "extra layer of protection". Please let me know how this product is to be used, and what it is to be used with. Thank you, Home Depot Shopper
Asked by: HopeDepotShopper
The shingles or other outer material (metal, cedar, clay) are the primary layer. Tiger Paw would be used as underlayment instead of felt.

How thick is this underlayment. It is a bubble underlayment. Do u have bubble underlayment

Asked by: Rod
Hello, we do not currently offer bubble underlayment. Tiger Paw is manufactured for use under sloped roofing systems to serve as a secondary layer of protection under the final roof covering, such as asphalt shingles. Thank you for your question.

400 sq. ft. Tiger Paw Roof Deck Protection Underlayment is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of all under metal roofs! Our new house has a metal roof and a STEEP pitch. I used 30# felt under the metal for all of the roofing job. BIG mistake!! Within a few weeks, the sheetrock in the greatroom had moisture stains on it from the condensation under the metal(went right through the felt!). The ceiling is vaulted...no attic over the greatroom, but the remainder of the house has attic access. Those ceilings under the attic sections had no moisture problem. Apparently due to considerably more ventilation from the attic. I removed the greatroom metal, installed Tigerpaw underlayment over the felt and whaddya know! No more moisture problem. This stuff also provides GREAT traction for climbing around on steep pitches, is a breeze to install and very light weight to handle. Couldn't be happier with this product and if I ever have to remove any other sections of roofing, you can bet I'll be using Tigerpaw under it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Strainer It should state in big words, not water proof or do not leave exposed. Nice stuff but guess should of looked more into it
Date published: 2016-09-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great as floor underlayment! Our bamboo floor required a vapor barrier/ underlayment. 15lb roofing felt or equivalent was recommended. Home Depot had this in stock and it didn't smell like tar as did the roofing felt. It goes down great, it's very tough once placed and holds in place well also. It's simply a great product.
