In Florida - is peel and stick underlayment worth it
We are building a house with a semi custom builder in Florida. The builder did not suggest to us an underlayment that is called peel and stick. This provides secondary water barrier in case of a hurricane. We are relatively safe in Florida in Melbourne (about 25 miles south of Cape Canaveral), but still this is Florida. We are new to this place but have heard that hurricanes to strike once in a while. Our house is a two story and has about 1400 sqft in each. The roof area is not that big. My builder wants $2200 to add on the peel and stick. This seems expensive to me. Is it really that expensive?
