Protect Your Home With Premium Breathable Roof Deck Protection
Roof Deck Protection should protect your home and reduce trapped moisture at the same time (amazingly, most synthetic underlayments do NOT!)
It provides a critical extra layer of protection between your roofing shingles and your roof deck — to help prevent wind-driven rain (or water from other sources) from infiltrating under your shingles and causing damage to your roof structure or to the inside of your home. In addition, premium-quality roof deck protection will:
Breathe...To allow moisture from inside your attic to escape (to help prevent structural decay, mold, and mildew)
Provide Longer-Lasting Leak Protection...Than conventional “felts” (which can rot or become brittle before your shingles reach their useful life)
Lay Flatter...So your shingles will lay flat
Deck-Armor™ Breathable Roof Deck Protection is a key part of the GAF Lifetime Roofing System, and has even earned the prestigious Good Housekeeping Seal. (See Details) * The GAF Lifetime Roofing System has earned the prestigious Good Housekeeping Seal, which means that Good Housekeeping stands behind the products in this system. (Refer to Good Housekeeping Magazine for its consumer protection policy. Applicable in U.S. only.)
