TCM Roof Underlayment 
For the ultimate "Cool Roof" there is now available a new and innovative thermal protection membrane for tile or metal roofs called "Thermal Control Membrane for roof underlayment" (TCMRU).  This product is comprised of several layers of patented membranes and reinforcement scrim which rejects over 95% of the radiant heat which previously heats up the roofing tiles, then the roof deck, then the attic.   TCMRU not only increases comfort and significantly reduces energy costs, it virtually allows the bitumen based tile underlayment to last forever since most of the heat changes direction before it gets to the black paper.

If you live in a sunny climate and are considering replacing your roof this is your opportunity to put
in place a product that will pay for itself for the life of the roof.

Builder: Krohn West
Location: Phoenix Arizona

The living space under this West facing roof could not be cooled regardless
of the thermostat setting.  Contractors were giving estimates of $7500 for
a larger a/c for comfort which this client was seriously considering in an
effort to gain comfort for his family.  Pulling up the tile and installing our TCM
Roof Underlayment immediately eliminated the symtoms by addressing the
problem. It was also1/5 the cost of a new a/c unit and will now have lower bills
not higher.

ri-directional scrim fused into the top layer for strength.   This means it can be
walked on during installation without being damaged and offers superior tear

Great for metal roofs!
