A GAF Lifetime Roofing System is a highly efficient and durable roofing system that offers top-notch weather protection. Today, we take a look at one of its most important components: the roof deck protection. Why is it so crucial in the first place? Jeff Woods Construction, the most trusted local roofer in your area, will be more than happy to explain.
Roof Deck Protection
The roof deck protection is designed to add an extra layer of security just underneath the shingles to reduce the effects of wear and tear on the roof deck supporting them. Any water that manages to make it past the gaps between your shingles won’t be able to get past properly installed roof deck protection.
A Second Weather Shield
Although roofing shingles take the brunt of what Nature can throw at it, roof deck protection can work as the final defense against the elements in case the shingles fail for some reason. Furthermore, roof deck protection installed by a roofing contractor like us also serves as the roof’s primary defense against wind-driven rain that gets under the shingles.
The roof deck protection is available in different materials. For example, Shingle-Mate® is made of a fiberglass-reinforced material while Synthetic is made of synthetic polymers. Other high-end options include Versashield®, which has improved fire-resistant technology, and RoofPro™, which is an SBS-modified underlayment more suitable for clients in the Western U.S.
Professional Installation Only
To get the most out of roof deck protection, GAF recommends having them installed by certified roofing companies like us. That way, you can be assured that your roof deck protection is installed exactly as how GAF designed them to be. It also adds the benefit of reducing the risk of installation-related issues.
