Video Blog: Understanding the GAF Lifetime Roofing System

Your roofing system is a vital part of your home. Lankford Roofing and Construction LLC, home of the leading roofing contractors, knows what each home needs: GAF Lifetime Roofing System. It brings unmatched quality to your house with the components it possesses. Learn more about what it can do for your home in this video.

Leak Barrier

This component helps prevent leaks caused by wind-driven rain and ice dams. It is an extra layer of protection for the most vulnerable areas of the roof.  A leak barrier is placed around the tip of the roof. It’s available in two variants: WeatherWatch®, a mineral-surfaced leak barrier for asphalt shingle roofs and StormGuard® for metal roofs.

Roof Deck Protection

Roof deck protection helps shield the roof deck from moisture infiltration. Roof repair contractors suggest including this component because it serves as an extra barrier to prevent damage from outside conditions.

It comes in different materials: synthetic to protect against moisture; Shingle-Mate® made from fiberglass to prevent wind-driven rain from damaging the roof structure; VersaShield®, which provides fire resistance; and RoofPro™, a modified underlayment to improve the look of your roof.

Starter Strip Shingles

These are applied at the eaves of your roof to prevent shingles from getting blown off by strong winds.

We offer WeatherBlocker™ and Pro-Start® for asphalt shingles; QuickStart® ,which saves time because of its convenient peel and stick feature; and StarterMatch™, which serve as designer shingles.

Asphalt Shingles

When the three are laid out, the asphalt shingles are placed on top of them. These are the first line of defense against harsh weather conditions.

Ridge Vent

Every home needs proper ventilation. Ridge vents reduce damaging heat and moisture in your attic. They also provide energy efficiency and lessen the chances of ice dam formation. With improved ridge vents and energy-efficient window replacement, your home is secure from heat and unwanted moisture build-up and damage.

Ridge Cap Shingles

This is the finishing touch. They are Installed at the ridges of the roof and come in two types: Premium, which provides a dramatic look with a protective finishing touch, and Standard, which is a high-quality, cost-effective alternative to using cut-up strip shingles as your ridge cap.

With all these components working together, homeowners can rest assured their home is properly shielded from the elements.
