I have a question about the peel-and-stick product. I understand that the plusses for this material are that it is much stronger than felt and that it seals around any screws or nails. But I understand that it has two drawbacks. Number one is that it is hard to trace any leaks, and number two is that it is difficult to remove if you have to re-roof again. Is this true, and are there any other pros and cons to this material? Would it be better to use the new titanium underlayment under metal, instead of the peel-and-stick?

Deciding which is better depends more on the pitch of the roof, the style of th emetal roofing, and the climate you live in.

I appreciate your reply.

To answer your questions, I live in a hurricane zone in SW Florida.

The pitch is 5/12 and the roof is all hip, no gable ends.

The type of metal roof I am considering is the 5V panels.

Please refer to my previous questions about the peel-and-stick, and whether titanium is a better product under the metal.

the peel n stick ice and water shield is a 'better' product for many things, but not totally necessary fro your roof, IMO.

the Titanium would be 'more appropriate' for you given that the pitch is greater than 3/12 and you should not be expecting sonow in the lifetime of this roof
