Tiger Paw™ Roof Deck Protection (also called roofing felt or underlayment)
Help Protect Your Home From Damaging
Moisture With Superior Roof Deck Protection
Superior Quality Roof Deck Protection Can Protect And Beautify At The Same Time!
Superior-quality roof deck protection should protect your home by providing a critical extra layer of protection between your shingles and your roof deck. It helps 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, superior-quality roof deck protection will:
- Help reduce damaging moisture that can become trapped on your roof deck
- Provide longer-lasting leak protection than conventional “felts”
(which can rot or become brittle before your shingles reach their useful life)
- Help your shingles lay flat and uniform, for a better-looking finished roof
Tiger Paw™ 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.)
Homeowner’s Best Choice
- Special Moisture-Control Design…
Helps remove nearly twice as much damaging moisture from your roof deck as the leading synthetic non-breathable underlayment. (See Details) As per ASTM D570-modified.
- Durable Construction…
Non-asphaltic, polypropylene construction for long-lasting performance (unlike conventional felts that can disintegrate over time).
- Better-Looking Roof…
Tiger Paw™ Roof Deck Protection resists wrinkling and buckling that can “telegraph” through your roof shingles and detract from its finished appearance.
- Peace of Mind…
Up to a Lifetime ltd. warranty when installed on Lifetime Shingle roofs. (See Details) See GAF Shingle & Accessory Ltd. Warranty for complete coverage and restrictions. The word "Lifetime" means as long as the original individual owner of a single family detached residence (or the second owner in certain circumstances) owns the property where the shingles and accessories are installed. For owners/structures not meeting above criteria, Lifetime coverage is not applicable. Lifetime ltd. warranty on accessories requires the use of at least three qualifying GAF accessories and the use of Lifetime Shingles.

Professional’s Best Choice
- Safer for Installers…
Specially designed surface helps provide excellent walkability for installers versus conventional felts or typical synthetic underlayments.
- Deck-Side Coating…
Anti-skid back coating helps improve walkability, while also helping to keep the roll stationary during installation.
Synthetic, non-woven construction provides at least 600% (i.e. 7 times) greater tear strength than standard #30 felt. (See Details) Trapezoidal tear strength per ASTM D4533.
- Less Chance of Blow-Off…
Up to 129% higher nail pull-through strength than #30 felt helps keep the product in place. (See Details) Nail pull-through per ASTM D3462.
- Convenient Size…
10 square, 48” wide roll installs up to 33% faster than conventional felts.
- Cooler to Work With…
Light-grey surface is cooler in hot weather than conventional black felts.
- Flexible Application…
Recommended for use with asphaltic shingle roof systems. May also be used with non-asphaltic systems, such as slate, wood, metal, or tile. (See Details) Contact GAF Technical Services at 1-800-ROOF-411 or visit www.gaf.com for acceptable non-asphaltic roofing systems and limited warranty coverage.
