Brite Tek backing

Anyone have any thoughts on pros and cons to felt/fleece backing on roof material? Going to re-roof the ole girl this spring/summer and curious. I would thing felt/fleece would maybe be there for noise?

It is there for cushioning. It provides abrasion resistance by isolating the Brite Tek from the roofs substrate and from your footfalls above while you are on the roof.

If you are thinking it might make the roof noise less in heavy rain, I doubt if it would make a noticeable difference. However, I see no reason not to try it if the price isn't too bad. You could probably use standard 30# roofing felt. It's not going to add much weight (about 60# for the entire roof?).

I hadn't thought of the abrasion resistance aspect. Makes sense.

The felt also is there for better adhesion and easier seperation later on, when roof needs to be replaced. Brite tek is an awesome product, will last a very long time if kept clean.
