Underlayments & Breathability.

Climate is an important consideration when choosing an underlayment. If snow and ice will cover vents, the wise move is a breathable underlayment.

The stack effect.

To move air throughout the attic, it’s necessary to achieve a “stack” effect, in which airflow across the roof draws air up through soffit or edge vents. The air is pulled through the attic, and then flows of out the ridge vents or can vents.

Protecting Against Ice Damming.

Shingles and underlayments can’t prevent leaks when water sits stagnant. During winter, water becomes trapped at the eaves, often causing considerable damage.

Ice and water shield is the best defense.

A water-tight layer of rubber membrane, that can keep standing water at bay is the only way to mitigate the danger posed by ice buildup.

Chimney Saddles & Flashing.

A chimney saddle provides a downward path so that water, ice, snow, and other debris are drawn past the chimney to the eaves.

High-Tech Shingles

Complete color and style options.

Because Atlas® offers a wide variety of shingle colors and styles, we’re confident that we can help you make a selection that’s just right for your home.

SBS rubber and granule retention.

Shingles fail when granule loss exposes the asphalt to the sun. When the asphalt cracks, the matt is unprotected and rapidly deteriorates. Atlas® Stormmaster incorporates SBS rubber to reduce granule loss by 90%.

Industry-best algae resistance.

Atlas® shingles include far more algae-resistant copper-coated granules than competing algae-resistant shingles. Preventing algae lichen growth, helps to further prevent granule loss.
