Westlake Royal Building Products™ has introduced SwiftGuard™, a synthetic roofing underlayment for steel, tile, shingle, and shake roofing. SwiftGuard is ideal for use in steep-slope roofing installations. The underlayment benefits from an innovative, patented nail gasketing technology, which helps ensure steel, tile, shake, and shingle roofing systems are better able to withstand the elements in all climates and seasons. Because of this technology, along with the product’s UV and thermal stability, SwiftGuard may be left uncovered and exposed to the elements for up to six months, or 180 days, without degradation.

The underlayment boasts a high-grip backing and a non-woven thermally embossed fiber face for increased deck grab and superior walkability. The product is available in 10-square rolls weighing just 35.5 lbs. each, providing lightweight ease in transporting, loading, installation, and storing. Clearly identifiable lay lines and fastening markers also enable swift and easy installation.
