Secure under foot, reliable over head. ProTex.
100-percent synthetic construction will neither rot nor support the growth of mold like organic felt products may. When left exposed, ProTex resists ultraviolet exposure for six months without swelling, warping, or wrinkling. Felt cannot offer these performance advantages when installed or left exposed to the elements. ProTex has proprietary slip-resistant features; felt does not. ProTex fastens securely; felt tears and is vulnerable to "blow offs." One roll of ProTex will cover five times the area a single roll of felt will. We stand behind that with our 30-year limited warranty.
ProTex is also more versatile, adaptable, and user-friendly than other synthetic underlayments. Its specially formulated polymer walking surface offers dynamic traction in a variety of weather conditions. Triple-layer polymer construction contributes to superior strength, durability and lightweight handling. And because it’s available with the most comprehensive custom printing in the industry, it can be a powerful advertising and lead-generation tool.
Homeowners rely on ProTex to protect their homes; roofers rely on it for roofer-friendly installation. Because it’s woven from polymer fabric, it’s strong and less likely to tear on fasteners, in high-traffic areas, or during high winds. Since a single roll of ProTex covers five times the area of a roll of Type 30 felt, crews can finish jobs more quickly — saving time and money. It also grips phenomenally well and has a skid-resistant polymer walking surface for dynamic traction. The result? Performance you can count on. Lastly, ProTex can be left exposed for up to 180 days.
While both FelTex and ProTex are superior products, ProTex is contractor-grade, whereas FelTex is among the safest, strongest, and best-performing underlayments on the market. The differences are as follows:
