On average, a structure will need roof replacement every 25 years. Most of the time, roofs deteriorate due to some uncontrollable factors, such as the weather, but there are a lot of things that are under your control to ensure that your roof stays in place for an extended amount of time. Here is the list of things that the GAF Lifetime Roofing System offers that will surely extend your roof’s lifespan.
Wind-driven rain is among the top causes of damage in roofing systems because strong gusts cause the rain to seep into the small spaces between the roof’s materials and damage them. The leak-barrier combats water damage by preventing any rain from entering your roof.
Roof Deck Protection
Moisture often attacks the deck of your roof. Most roofing contractors overlook this because damage doesn’t start inside the roof, but an extra layer of protection won’t hurt. A protective material placed between your roof shingles and roof deck to help wick away moisture from extreme humidity will work perfectly.
Starter Strip Shingles
This strong adhesive will lock your roofing system’s shingles in place to help prevent shingle blow-off in the presence of strong winds brought about by storms.
When choosing shingles for your roof, give attention to both appearance and structural integrity. The shingles from GAF promise both beauty and protection, making sure that nothing is compromised and that your roofing repair efforts will be reduced.
Cobra Attic Ventilation
Attics are known to be hot and humid, but with the proper ventilation, moisture and heat won’t be your enemy and your attic can turn be a comfortable and cozy space.
