WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
“After trying the CMI Secure Grip, it is the only underlayment we will use now! We like it so much that we purchase it by the pallet at a time. It meets all of our expectations to help give our customers the best roof possible. With CMI's Secure Grip, we can walk on it on steeper roofs as well as on a damp morning and not worry about it being slick like many other synthetics. It’s a must use with our company whether we are installing Metal Roofing, Asphalt Shingles or even using it as a barrier under fiber board for EPDM and TPO installation. We would urge all other roofing companies to give this product a try... You will not be disappointed!!"
“Continental SG30 has given us the opportunity to service our customers with a better, quicker, more cost-effective solution to traditional felt.
