Quality roofing underlayment is critical for helping to prevent wind-driven rain from infiltrating under the roof's shingles and potentially damaging the home's structure and interior. Traditional asphalt felt underlayments tear easily and absorb moisture, leading to wrinkling that telegraphs through the shingles. Competitively priced with typical #15 and #30 asphalt felts, GAF FeltBuster High-Traction Synthetic Roofing Felt is virtually untearable and will not absorb moisture, helping to prevent wrinkling. Its specially designed surface combines enhanced walk ability with a cooler working surface (versus black asphalt felts). Part of the GAF Lifetime Roofing System, FeltBuster High-Traction Synthetic Roofing Felt is covered by up to a lifetime limited warranty when installed on lifetime shingle roofs.
  • Enhanced Walkability — Special spunbound surface helps provide increased traction versus typical asphalt felts
  • Tough Synthetic Construction — Resists tearing and will not absorb moisture, become brittle, or leach oils
  • Cooler to Work On — Medium-gray surface is up to 30° cooler than typical black asphalt felts (Based on GAF testing with underlayments installed on plywood deck at 90°F (32.2°C) ambient temperature and left exposed to direct sunlight)
  • Easy to Work With — Super-lightweight, 10-square, 48 in. (1.23 m) wide roll (versus typical 36 in. [914 mm] wide felt rolls)
  • Durable — Non-asphaltic polypropylene construction for long-lasting performance (unlike conventional felts that can disintegrate over time)
  • A Better-Looking Roof — Lies flatter than typical felts and avoids “telegraphing” of wrinkles, which can detract from the look of the new roof
  • Peace of Mind — Part of the GAF Lifetime Roofing System and eligible for Lifetime ltd. warranty when installed on Lifetime Shingle roofs (See GAF Shingle & Accessory Ltd. Warranty for complete coverage and restrictions)

Questions & Answers

What kind of tape is used for the edge overlays, side overlays, and fasteners?

What kind of tape is used for the edge overlays, side overlays, and fasteners?
Asked by: dls
According to GAF installation instructions no tape is used. Fasten with plastic cap nails one every foot on bottom edge & 2 rows in middle one every two feet, stagger or alternate nails in these rows. Upper edge is overlapped by next sheet. There are circles every six inches in the three rows to aid in nail placement.

Feltbuster was installed on my roof and it rained overnight. The rain was heavy, but there was no wind. The roof leaked at every plywood seam. The leaks were so bad it was raining inside the building. It wasn't just a drip here or there. In some cases it was a steady stream. Is this normal? I realize the product is not for weather protection, but I have used tar paper in the past and did have any issues. Please answer ASAP as I have to decide whether to tear this off and replace it with tar paper.

Can i use this as underlayment over my shingles i am re roofing with metal.

Metal roof
Asked by: Lidia
Yes, Most DIY metal roof panels can be laid right on top of shingles with no felt or underlayment of any sort, putting this underlayment on will slightly prevent water from traveling up under the metal roof, the biggest benefit i found is when you get a hole, you can cut the metal back from edge and use the underlayment for helping a fiberglass patch hold to the roof.

1000 sq. ft. FeltBuster Synthetic Roofing Underlayment Roll is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 157.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Attn Sonny I am a licensed contractor and I recently installed this underlayment on a roof in Boerne, Texas. I began this job under clear skies but that soon changed. A few months ago, when there was severe flooding in nearby areas, I was able to complete the metal roof- albeit under ominous clouds. I know this product is not recommended as an underlayment for metal roofing however in my experience with other underlayments I found that this was comparable to the more expensive products. If properly installed this underlayment does not allow for water penetration and will hold up better than any felt product I have ever used. I gave this four stars only because I have used one other underlayment which is triple the price but the best product money can buy. Whether you're putting down shingles or metal this product is well worth the price. I chose to install this with 1/2" Arrow T-50 staples and a couple of hammer tackers. Install time was reduced drastically and the homeowner never had a drop of water in her home.
