VersaShield® Fire-Resistant Roof Deck Protection

Protect Your Roof From Moisture While Improving Its Fire Resistance With UL Class A Roof Deck Protection Quality Roof Deck Protection provides an extra layer of moisture protection between your roofing material and the roof deck. However, in some jurisdictions, roof assemblies are also required to be fire resistant.

Fire-Resistant roof deck protection:

  • Should provide the very best fire protection: a UL Class A rating on most homes and properties

  • Protects against dangerous flame spread and penetration into the interior of the property

  • Upgrades UL classification of most metal roofs to a UL Class A rating

  • Helps provide temporary moisture resistance while the roofing system is being installed

Good House Keeping Seal VersaShield® Fire-Resistant Roof Deck Protection is a key part of the GAF Lifetime Roofing System, and has even earned the prestigious Good Housekeeping Seal. (See Details)
