Your roof faces different kinds of elements every day, such as sunlight, heat and wind. During hail or heavy storms, it keeps you and your home protected. These are just some of the reasons you should have a quality roof deck protection system installed by a reliable roofing contractor.
Read on to learn what roof deck protection is and discover different GAF product options as well.
What Does Roof Deck Protection Do?
The main purpose of roof deck protection is to keep water from penetrating under the shingles. When water enters beneath the shingles, the structural integrity of your roof can be compromised. Once that happens, other components of your home will be at risk of damage, as well as your belongings. Moreover, it acts as an added layer of protection between the shingles and roof deck.
With deck protection, you don’t need to worry about constantly needing a roof repair, and your roofing system will look more appealing. The shingles will look flatter and will not buckle during installation. Also, the possibility of shingles blowing off is lower since they lay flatter and more uniformly.
