Tiger Paw Roof Deck Protection

Help Protect Your Home From Damaging
Moisture With Premium Roof Deck Protection

Premium-Quality Roof Deck Protection Can Protect And Beautify At The Same Time!

Premium-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, premium-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 lie flat and uniform, for a better-looking finished roof Good Housekeeping

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)

    Helps remove nearly twice as much damaging moisture from your roof deck as the leading synthetic non-breathable underlayment. (See Details)

    Non-asphaltic, polypropylene construction will not rot or become brittle (unlike conventional felts, that can disintegrate over time).
