As a homeowner, your homes roof is one of your top priorities. Yet your roof deck also needs protection.
While other roofers fail to offer roof deck protection, the GAF Lifetime Roofing System provided by Elevated Roofing goes the extra distance.
The GAF Lifetime Roofing System gives customers an additional layer of protection between the roof shingles and the roof deck, improved aesthetics and much more.
Why Roof Deck Protection is so Important
A surprising number of homeowners overlook roof deck protection, assuming that everything will be fine.
In reality, roof deck protection is extremely important. It prevents harsh wind, rain and other sources of water from seeping in below your roofs shingles.
If such wind-driven rain were allowed to infiltrate this space, it would cause extensive damage to the roof and possibly even the interior of your home. GAF roof deck protection also assists in your quest to reduce blow-off as it allows for the roof shingles to lay flat and be orientated in the same manner. This lay flat feature guarantees that buckling will not occur during installation.
Lets take a look at the three GAF Roof Deck Protection solutions homeowners can choose from:
GAFs Deck-Armor is considered the best around as it defends your roof deck, roof and everything beneath it with a unique breathable form of protection.
This premium breathable protection greatly decreases the amount of moisture that is trapped inside your homes attic so that mildew, mold and general decay do not form. Deck-Armor also provides homeowners with an extra layer of protection between the roof deck and shingles.
This way, strong rain and other sources of moisture wont infiltrate beneath your shingles! Deck-Armor is so revered that it earned the coveted Good Housekeeping Seal.
Youll enjoy a much-needed peace of mind, knowing that Deck-Armor guards against leaks across posterity.
Deck-Armor ensures that your shingles will lie flat, look amazing and stay strong.
