High Performance Synthetic Underlayment

CertainTeed’s DiamondDeck™ High Performance Synthetic Underlayment is manufactured to provide best-in-class performance in terms of both weather protection and contractor safety.


DiamondDeck is a synthetic, scrim-reinforced, water-resistant underlayment that can be used beneath shingle, shake, metal or slate roofing. It has exceptional dimensional stability compared to standard felt underlayment.

 
Felt underlayment can wrinkle when it becomes wet and “telegraph” those wrinkles through to the shingles applied over it. DiamondDeck eliminates this problem and its special top surface treatment provides excellent slip resistance, even when wet.

Proper Installation is Critical.


CertainTeed DiamondDeck™ Synthetic Roofing Underlayment is suitable for use under asphalt roofing shingles, wood shingles and shakes, metal shingles, or slate. Follow finished roofing manufacturer’s instructions and all local building code requirements.


Caution!  DiamondDeck may be slippery when wet, or when it is covered with dust, frost, ice, or snow.

 
Apply DiamondDeck only to a clean, smooth nailable deck.  Application method is dependent on roof slope, anticipated exposure time, anticipated wind speeds, and climate. If the roof is in a climate where ice damming may occur, then first apply an ASTM D1970-compliant underlayment such as CertainTeed’s WinterGuard™ Waterproofing Shingle Underlayment to all eaves following the directions on the package.
