Components of a GAF Lifetime Roofing System

GAF shingles have been the roofing material choice for many American homeowners as they provide superior protection from harsh weather and extreme shifts in temperature. In today’s post, the leading gutter repair and installation expert, New Image Elite, discusses the components of a GAF Lifetime roofing system.

Cobra Attic Ventilation

A well-ventilated attic improves the overall quality of your roofing system. The Cobra Attic Ventilation system helps reduce attic moisture and heat, preventing premature deterioration and mold buildup, improving your home’s energy efficiency. The ventilation system lets hot, humid air escape through the roof ridge. An air intake provides ventilation around the soffit of the roof. Other parts of the Cobra Attic Ventilation System include foundation vents, louvers, chimney caps, jacks, gooseneck vents, storm collars, and flashings.

Ridge Cap Shingles

According to roofing and siding replacement experts, these shingles help defend against leaks at the hips and ridges of the roof. They showcase the beauty of your roof and add an extra layer of depth and dimension to a three-tab shingle roof.

Lifetime Shingles

GAF Lifetime Shingles come in a variety of styles and colors to match your home, preference, and budget. Timberline® Lifetime Architectural Roofing Shingles is one of the best-selling shingles in the country to date. Rest assured that any shingles we install will delight you, impress passersby, and protect your home for the years to come.

Starter Strip Shingles

These adhesive strips help secure shingles in place to prevent any blow-offs from occurring. It is applied parallel to the eave, with the sealant side facing up, and towards the eave edge. Pro-Start® strips are economical alternatives to three-tab strip shingles. WeatherBlocker® strips are designed to use on all asphalt shingles. QuickStart® allows quick installation by eliminating starter strip cutting and fastening.

Leak Barrier

This component saves you from costly repairs caused by ice dams and torrential rain by preventing roof leaks. Some of these choices include WeatherWatch® which is a mineral-surfaced leak barrier used in asphalt roofs and StormGuard® which is meant for metal and shingle roofs.

Roof Deck Protection

This component provides an extra layer of protection between your roofing shingles and roof deck, preventing moisture from entering. GAF offers three types of roof deck protection, like Deck-Armor™, FeltBuster® and VersaShield®.
