If you are getting a roof replacement, your roofer will probably ask you to choose which roof deck protection product you want to use for your roofing system. Like most homeowners, you probably do not know much about roof deck protection. Don’t worry about it because Coxco Roofing is here to provide you with the information you need.
What Is Roof Deck Protection and Why Do You Need It?
Roof deck protection, as the name suggests, offers an additional layer of protection between the deck of your roof and the shingles. It keeps water or moisture from getting under your roof shingles and damaging the structure of your roof and your home. It also allows roofers to apply shingles more uniformly.
What Options for Roof Deck Protection Does GAF Offer?
When you work with GAF Master Elite® roofing contractors like Coxco Roofing, you get GAF’s entire Lifetime Roofing System, as well as options like GAF roof deck protection products like these:
This is a type of underlayment that is made of UV-stabilized polypropylene that is breathable. It is easier to install. It’s also very sturdy. Another thing roofing contractors like about this product is its ability to resist Ultraviolet degradation.
Made of non-asphaltic polypropylene, this product is resistant to tearing and will neither absorb moisture or get brittle. Its spunbound surface offers better traction than the usual asphalt felts.
This type of roof deck protection lies flatter than traditional felt because it is fiberglass reinforced. And because there is no need to slit bubbled felt, it is able to provide better protection.
This is another UV stabilized type of underlayment. It’s about seven times more resistant to tearing compared to standard felt. It has great walkability, too.
This is another option for you if you prefer a fiberglass-reinforced roof deck protection. The main feature of this product is that it is designed to improve your roofing system’s resistance to fire. Its application can upgrade the UL fire classification of your roofing as it can greatly help avoid the spread of fire.
These are your options for roof deck protection. You can ask one of our experts about any of them if you have any questions.
Whether you are in need of a new roofing system or a minor hail damage repair, Coxco Roofing can take care of it for you.
