Through the years, GAF has introduced numerous roofing innovations for homes and commercial properties. Some of these products are specifically made to ensure your roofing has a reliable support system.
It’s recommended to invest in these roofing products as they ensure your roof’s maximum performance and life span. Make sure to get them early on to avoid dealing with major problems like an extensive and expensive hail damage repair.
Affordable Roofing Systems, a trusted company with a team of seasoned roofing experts, explains how you can benefit from a roof deck protection plan and enumerates four basic options that you can choose from.
Roof Deck Protection
Roof deck protection is installed between your roof deck and shingles. It adds an extra layer of protection, prevents your roof from buckling, and reduces blow-offs. If you want to avoid serious damage and costly roof repairs, you should consider adding a roof deck protection to your roofing system.
4 Roof Deck Protection Options to Choose From
GAF has come up with a wide range of roof deck protection products to suit varying needs.
GAF’s synthetic roof deck protection comes in three specialized variants:
Tiger Paw™ (a premium, UV-stabilized polypropylene underlayment)
Deck-Armor™ (a breathable, UV-stabilized polypropylene underlayment)
FeltBuster® (a non-asphaltic, polypropylene roofing underlayment)
Each of these synthetic protection products is made for specific purposes. But generally, they help prevent wind-driven rain from penetrating under your shingles and damaging your roof.
Shingle-Mate is a fiberglass-reinforced protection that lies flatter than typical felts, which reduces the “telegraphing” of wrinkles. Much like the synthetic variants, Shingle-Mate is proven to be effective in preventing wind-driven rain from infiltrating your roof system.
VeraShield is also a fiberglass-reinforced underlayment that provides additional moisture protection. It has a UL Class A rating, which means it can help improve your roof system’s fire resistance.
RoofPro is an SBS-modified, fiberglass-reinforced underlayment that adds another layer of moisture protection between your roofing material and roof deck. It helps improve the look of your roof as well.
