Founded in 2017, the Asphalt Underlayment Council (AUC) is a national trade organization for roofing companies that manufacture and supply asphalt roofing underlayment products.
With a desire to cultivate the long-term success of underlayment products for building envelope applications for both residential and commercial structures, four roofing companies – Carlisle, Gardner-Gibson, Maryland Paper and Mid-States Asphalt – formed AUC because they identified the need for an industry council that supports the standardization of underlayment product quality, performance and integrity.
AUC’s inaugural technical committee will focus on code classifications and industry regulations. Bringing regulatory issues to light through educational initiatives and industry outreach will be accomplished through raising awareness and advocacy. AUC will actively assist in the development of building codes to ensure the high performance of roofing systems in the future.
