Titanium X30 is the result of a collaboration by Valentine Roofing and Owens Corning with the mission to develop a new, cutting edge underlayment, one that would be ideal for the climate here in the Puget Sound. After over a year of travel, development, and testing – we’re proud that Titanium X30 underlayment is now available and being installed by your local residential roofing contractor, Valentine Roofing.
Our boots were first on the ground in early 2019 when we met with the Research and Development team from Owens Corning Headquarters to begin collaborating on an underlayment that would outperform others. One created with Puget Sound homes in mind.
In early Spring of 2019 our team went back to Owens Corning Headquarters in Toledo, Ohio to begin lab testing the new underlayment, providing contractor feedback and recommendations.
By the end of Spring and Summer we began field-testing the new underlayment material and evaluated performance, ease of install, safety, and more. This final testing phase confirmed X30 would be safer to install, more efficient, and provide superior protection.
At the end of Fall 2019 the final product was settled on and production officially began on Titanium X30.
Why Titanium X30?
Titanium X30 is made from a fully synthetic fabric that will hold up better and last longer compared to other underlayment materials. When installed properly X30 will seal around penetrations, preventing damage. A major highlight is that X30 is safe to walk and work on when it is wet, which makes it ideal for homes across the Pacific Northwest. In addition, Titanium X30 is extremely lightweight, weighing about half the weight of comparable underlayment products. One of the most exciting features is the ease of install. X30 can be installed at a more efficient rate due to the lighter weight of the material. Finally, Titanium X30 provides more square footage coverage per roll than other underlayments.
