Cement shake roofs are a relatively new type of roofing system which has become quite popular in recent years. These roofing systems tend to be subject to paper underlayment failure, for a number of reasons. Cement shakes are designed with top and bottom edges which rest directly on top of the their asphalt-based paper underlayment. And during hot weather, the paper underlayment heats up and softens, developing tears as a consequence of the weight and pressure of the tile edges. In addition, in some cases, the cement shakes are attached to the roof by means of wood or plastic "batt" strips, which ideally, are constructed with regularly spaced drainage holes along the strip length. But often, inferior batt strips without drainage holes are used, which form little "dams" underneath the shake layer, preventing any water which penetrates beneath the shake layer from draining down the roof slope. Needless to say, this combination of damaged paper underlayment and poor roof drainage becomes a major issue when water seeps under the cement shake layer through a broken tile, a poorly flashed roof transition, or a roof area which has been subject to wind damage, leading to the potential for significant roof leakage problems.
