Not All Roofing Systems Are Created Equal

The GAF Roofing System is designed to provide lasting comfort, beauty, and protection for years to come. And, as an Portland Roofing Contractor that is Master Elite Certified with GAF you know you are getting the best quality installation for your money. Here is a breakdown of the different components of the best roofing system on the planet.

LEAK BARRIER

It all starts with a high-quality leak barrier applied between your roofing shingles and the roof deck to provide exceptional protection against leaks (and costly repairs) caused by wind-driven rain, roof settling, ice dams, and extreme weather. Excellent upgrades are available at all vulnerable areas says an Portland Roofer (including at the eaves in the North*).

ROOF DECK PROTECTION

This provides an additional layer of protection between the roofing shingles and the wood decking to guard against moisture infiltration from wind-driven rain, while still allowing moisture in the attic to escape. Also, it lies flatter for a smooth looking roof.

STARTER STRIP SHINGLES

Helps to defend against shingles blowing off while saving time, and may even help qualify for upgraded wind warranty coverage (see GAF Shingle & Accessory Ltd. Warranty for details). Starter strip shingles combine a high-quality, well-positioned adhesive that will tightly secure your shingles in place to help prevent shingle blow-off.

LIFETIME SHINGLES

GAF offers you many fabulous Lifetime Shingle options, including Timberline Shingles that is equipped with Advanced Protection Shingle Technology. They are the #1-selling shingles in North America for beauty, durability, affordability, color, and energy-efficiency. Whatever your priority is, we have the shingle for you!

COBRA ATTIC VENTILATION

Helps eliminate excess heat and condensation from your attic that can increase your energy bills, create premature peeling of interior paint and wallpaper, and even harm your health. Efficient attic ventilation promotes energy efficiency by assisting to decrease the stress on your air conditioner during the summer, and also lessen the risk of ice dam development on your roof. Exhaust ventilation enables hot, humid air to escape at and near the roof ridges.

RIDGE CAP SHINGLES

The finishing touch that enhances the beauty of your home while guarding against leaks at the hips and ridges. Hip & Ridge Cap Shingles emphasize the natural beauty of your architectural asphalt shingle roof and can also increase the dimension and depth of a 3-Tab shingle roof.
