The deck is one of the most crucial components of an asphalt shingle roofing system, so you’ll want to make sure it comes with additional defense against possible weather damage. This is where roof deck protection comes in. It’s a weather-resistant, waterproofing material that is installed directly onto your roof deck. But it’s not enough to just choose any roof deck protection–make sure to pick the one from GAF®, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer. The trusted residential and commercial roofing contractor in the area, Precision Roofing Inc. shares some of your available roof deck protection choices from GAF®.
GAF® offers synthetic roof deck protection–and its premium option is DECK-ARMOR™. It is a breathable, UV-stabilized polypropylene underlayment that protects your home against water infiltration caused by wind-driven rain. Unlike organic felt underlayment, DECK-ARMOR™ is impervious to moisture. It combines breathability and strength, eliminating the potential for shingle buckling and wrinkling that can negatively affect the overall look of your roofing system. What’s more, it comes with a slip-resistant surface that allows for enhanced walkability, even on roofs with a steeper pitch.
This is another excellent synthetic roof deck protection by GAF®. TIGER PAW™ also uses UV-stabilized polypropylene underlayment that delivers a critical layer of protection between your roof deck and asphalt shingles. Thanks to its moisture-control design and durable construction, you’re always sure your roof and home remains protected against leaks. But make sure your TIGER PAW™ roof deck protection is installed only by GAF® Master Elite® roofing companies like Precision Roofing Inc.
Unlike the choices mentioned above, SHINGLE-MATE® roof deck protection uses reinforced fiberglass instead of synthetic. It lies flat and sleek against the roof, allowing for a more uniform look. SHINGLE-MATE® roof deck protection is also versatile enough that it can be applied over plywood, wood plank and other roof deck materials.
This particular option is also fiberglass-reinforced, but with the extra advantage of improving the fire resistance of your asphalt shingle roofing system. In fact, it comes with a UL Class A fire rating, keeping your home intact against both water and fire.
