Can staples be used on the RoofTopGuard II Premium and Roofers Choice II Synthetic Underlayment lines?
No. We recommend that 1” capped nails be used during installation (smooth shank preferred). However, if staples are used, they must be capped staples. If capped staples are used, extra care must be taken to fasten at a 90 degree angle or there is a risk dimpling the cap and compromising the integrity of the cap’s sealing effect.

Both RoofTopGuard II Premium or Roofers Choice II can be left exposed to the elements and UV for 180 days, or 6 months. This rate is based on proper installation of the product.
Can RoofTopGuard II Premium and Roofers Choice II be used on slopes less than 2:12?
Yes. However, the underlayment must not be mechanically fastened, and all laps must be sealed.
