EcoStar Aqua Guard is a highly durable, waterproof underlayment designed for indefinite outdoor exposure on both residential or commercial buildings. Made of polyethylene/polypropylene, it's stronger and lighter than traditional roofing felt and is more slip, tear and wind-resistant. It will not degrade or crack when exposed to the sun for up to 90 days.
EcoStar Aqua Guard is a cost-effective alternative to roofing felt that provides superior protection while meeting all national roofing codes.
This product is clearly a big improvement over petroleum-saturated felt paper. It's stronger, lighter, easier to install and longer lasting in extreme conditions of heat or wind. It's required by EcoStar for their Goldstar Warranty.

It is recommended that Aqua Guard be installed by professional
roofi ng applicators to ensure a quality installation.
Prior to installation, the roof deck must be clean, smooth and
dry. Because it is considered a vapor barrier, Aqua Guard must
be installed above ventilated attic spaces.
Lay Aqua Guard horizontally (parallel to eave) with the printed
side up, and with 4-inch (102 mm.) horizontal laps and 6-inch
(152 mm.) vertical laps. Attach Aqua Guard to the roof with roofing
nails having 1-inch diameter (25.4 mm.) plastic caps spaced
at 4-inches (102 mm.) on center on vertical and horizontal laps
and at 12-inches (305 mm.) on center vertically and horizontally
in the fi eld. For additional protection, lay a single length of Aqua
Guard vertically up all valleys and hips.
After installation of Aqua Guard, installation of the roof covering
can begin immediately. Though Aqua Guard is not designed for
indefi nite outdoor exposure, it can be left exposed for up to three
months before applying the roofi ng system.
