GAF Roof System
More homeowners in North America rely on Timberline® Shingles than any other brand. They offer just the right combination of beauty, performance, and reliability — and are the best value in roofing today.
Pre-cut eave/rake starter strips are one of the most overlooked parts of a roofing system! That’s because some roofing contractors try to use a cut-up 3-tab strip shingle as the “starter” course on your roof. Unfortunately, these cut-up shingles may not have properly positioned adhesive to help reduce the risk of shingle blow-off. Pro-Start® Eave/Rake Starter Strips are made with a high-quality, properly positioned adhesive applied at the factory to help prevent shingle blow-off. Plus, installers like that they’re easy to use with no cutting on the roof, while homeowners feel good about the fact that they create less waste.
By creating a barrier at the most vulnerable areas of your roof (at the eaves and rakes, in valleys, around chimneys, etc.), WeatherWatch® Leak Barrier will help prevent leaks due to water backing up in your gutters, wind-driven rain, and, in the North, damaging ice dams. It will also protect your home from expensive wall and ceiling staining from leaks. WeatherWatch® Leak Barrier is a key part of the GAF Lifetime Roofing System.
A premium, UV-stabilized polypropylene underlayment that provides a critical extra layer of protection between your shingles and your roof deck.
A non-asphaltic, polypropylene roofing underlayment that helps to prevent wind-driven rain from infiltrating under the roof’s shingles.
