Typar Surround

The roofing deck is the area that supports the actual roofing material, and protecting it from moisture is key to assuring the lifespan of the roof and the long-term durability of the home.
roll
Whether your roof is covered with shingles, shakes, tile, slate or metal, be sure it’s protected with SURROUND SR Underlayment. A smart alternative to felt, it is water’s toughest opponent, creating a secondary water barrier that reduces the incidence of leaks caused by storm damage, wind-driven rain, ice dams and worn roofing materials. It is a waterproof, synthetic polymer material that will protect your homes against moisture intrusion.

Start protecting your home at the top with Surround SR Underlayment.

In addition to superior weather protection, SURROUND SR Underlayment offers five key advantages:

  • Stronger - 10 times stronger than 30# felt for the ultimate tear resistance, so it will not blow off during installation and helps eliminate the need for costly roof repair.
  • Drier - the unique slip-resistant surface is waterproof to prevent moisture issues.
  • Lighter - up to 10 times lighter than 30# felt so it's easy to carry onto a roof.
  • Faster - in addition to having five times more underlayment per roll than felt, the rolls are also 25 percent wider for quicker roof deck coverage.
  • Secure - SURROUND SR Underlayment meets the more stringent requirements of ICC AC48-Acceptance Criteria for Roof Underlayment for Use in Severe Climate Areas.

 

 

 

 

Vic West Steel Roofing

logo

There are a number of profiles to choose from but the SuperVic profile is the most common.

Our SuperVic profile gives you the classic look of standing seam in a cost-effective roofing solution. Four main ribs 3/4" (19 mm) high, coupled with stiffening beads on each low side of these main ribs, give triple protection and assure a snug fitting side lap. SuperVic's greater strength permits spans over 20" (508 mm), resulting in fewer supports and fasteners. This alone translates into an installation and material savings cost, making SuperVic the perfect choice for long term protection on a limited budget.

  • New construction or re-roof applications
  • Perfect for the home, cottage or any other backyard structure
  • Approved by C.M.H.C. 6382
  • 40-year limited warranty on the paint finish
  • Exposed fastening system allows for easy and speedy installation
  • Extremely low maintenance
  • Wide spectrum of colors
  • Suitable for roof or wall applications
  • Great as a new construction or retrofit products
  • Will not warp, crack or split
  • Very lightweight
  • Mold and mildew resistant

View the VicWest site for all profiles and colour selection. We get a truck every Wednesday so allow at least a week to order. Sheets are custom cut to length and usually the 28 guage thick is purchased. Steel roofing works best on higher pitched roofs and is best that the roofing does not line up with your deck railing when the snow comes sliding off! Many accessories are available for this product. Contact our sales representatives for the fine details.
