The 6 Components of The GAF Lifetime Roofing System
GAF StormGuard Leak Barrier
By creating a barrier at the most vulnerable areas of your asphalt shingle or metal roof (at the eaves and rakes, in valleys, around chimneys, etc.)StormGuard Film-Surfaced Leak Barrier helps prevent leaks due to water backing up in your gutters, wind-driven rain, and in the North, damaging ice dams. It will also help protect your home from expensive wall and ceiling staining from leaks.
GAF Deck-Armor Roof Deck Protection
Conventional organic felts can absorb moisture, causing buckling and wrinkling that can impact the look of your roof. Deck-Armor™ Premium Breathable Roof Deck Protection combines strength and breathability to help protect your home against wind driven rain and trapped moisture.
GAF Pro-Start Starter Strip Shingle
Pre-cut eave/rake starter strips are one of the most overlooked parts of a roofing system! That’s because some roofing contractors try to use a cut-up 3-tab strip shingle as the “starter” course on your roof. Unfortunately, these cut-up shingles may not have properly positioned adhesive to help reduce the risk of shingle blow-off. Pro-Start® Eave/Rake Starter Strips are made with a high-quality, properly positioned adhesive applied at the factory to help prevent shingle blow-off. Plus, installers like that they’re easy to use with no cutting on the roof, while homeowners feel good about the fact that they create less waste.
