Stormtite is IKO’s economical synthetic underlayment choice. Stronger than conventional organic felts, Stormtite installs easily, even in cold weather, due to its light weight. It is engineered to be used under asphalt shingles and is part of a complete roofing system. IKO’s Stormtite is fully coated with tough polyolefin for superior weather resistance. Made of synthetic, non-breathable material, it effectively sheds water that gets behind shingles and is engineered to be a vapor-retarder. Built-in UV stabilizers means it can be left exposed for up to 30 days and continue to perform. Visit www.IKO.com for more information.
