SLOPESHIELD® Water Resistive Roof Underlayment
Over 30,000 sq.ft. of SLOPESHIELD® Water Resistive Roof Underlayment was installed on the 77 year old Kiel Opera House now renamed Peabody Opera House. Built in 1934, the opera house was closed in 1991, but with restoration and renovation re-opened in Fall of 2011.
The $79 million renovation job was planned and completed over three years and took 1,200 artisans and workers to compete. VaproShield was proud to be part of this historic renovation.
SLOPESHIELD® was chosen because it combines the best properties of a water resistive vapor permeable roof underlayment and an air barrier membrane. SLOPESHIELD® also offers:
- Secondary Rain Barrier
- Zero VOC's, (no off-gassing)
- Low Temperature Applications
- High Temperature Resistance
- Tough, Durable, Tear Resistant
- Cinches around fasteners
- Contribution to LEED points
