Features

Tiger-Paw™ Roof Deck Protection is a key part of the GAF Lifetime Roofing System,2 and has earned the Good Housekeeping Seal.3

  • Better-Looking Roof:  Resists wrinkling and buckling that can “telegraph” through your roof shingles and detract from its finished appearance.
  • Safer for Installers:  Specially designed surface helps provide excellent walk-ability for installers versus conventional felts or typical synthetic underlayments.
  • Stronger:  Synthetic, non-woven construction provides at least 600% (i.e. 7 times) greater tear strength than standard #30 felt.4
  • Durable Construction:  Non-asphaltic, polypropylene construction will not rot or become brittle - unlike conventional felts, which can disintegrate over time.
  • 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.5
  • UV Stabilized Polypropylene Construction:  Resists UV degradation for up to 180 days.6

Note: Always use plastic cap nails or staples with plastic caps to install Tiger Paw™ Roof Deck Protection.
