Your search for a high-performance, stunning, and long-lasting roof is over: GAF’s Lifetime Roofing System is here. Consisting of six essential components (each with the prestigious Good Housekeeping Seal), it’s a smart investment to beautify and weatherproof your home.
As a proud installer of GAF’s Lifetime Roofing System, Crown Roofing breaks down its anatomy:
The leak barrier is a self-adhering membrane applied in the valleys and at the eave and rake edges, sealing the roof’s most leak-prone areas. It heightens the protection the flashings provide, especially around penetrations. Apart from keeping the specter of water leakage at bay, it makes the roof installation easier.
Roof Deck Protection
Installed in between the roof deck and asphalt shingles, this extra layer of protection neutralizes water infiltration caused by wind-driven rain. It ensures the underlying wood foundation remains dry and strong. In addition, it helps shingles lay flatter. Without buckling, your shingles are less likely to be blown off by strong winds.
Starter Strip Shingles
The starter strip shingles go at the eaves. Using GAF’s powerful adhesive, they help reduce the chances of significant blow-off to keep your roofing shingles in place.
GAF’s Lifetime Shingles are made with Advanced Protection® Technology. They offer the best combination of weight and performance, optimizing material content to the fullest. Available in a huge array of colors and styles, your imagination is the only limit.
These specialized vents help maintain optimum attic climate. They allow your roof to breathe out excessive indoor moisture and let in cool drafts to discourage condensation in winter. Since proper attic ventilation is imperative to prevent shingle curling and ice damming, these ridge and soffit vents reduce the likelihood of roofing repairs.
Ridge Cap Shingles
These offer the perfect finishing touch. They protect the vents against the elements and match the appearance of Lifetime Shingles to create a uniform look.
