As a GAF Master Elite® residential roofing contractor, we take pride in installing a wide range of top-notch roofing systems, including GAF’s state-of-the-art Lifetime Roofing System. Read on as we explain how this cutting-edge roofing system combines lasting aesthetics with unparalleled weather protection.——————————————– CONTINUE READING ——————————————–Leak Barriers and Roof Deck ProtectionWhen replacing your roof with the GAF Lifetime Roofing system, we’ll strip off your existing roof, inspect the roof decking and repair any issues that we find there. Next, we’ll install leak barriers on vulnerable areas such as valleys, eaves and rake edges. These adhesive-backed waterproofing materials work together with the roof deck protection system, which we then install on the entirety of the decking.Starter StripsAfter giving your roof structure a boost against water intrusion, we proceed with the shingle installation. We first cover the roof edge with starter strips to protect it from damage caused by high winds and updrafts. This adhesive-reinforced roll of material also helps enhance the roof’s beauty.Lifetime ShinglesAfter the starter strips are in place, we install the top-notch roofing shingles that boast a great combination of beauty, versatility and durability. They are available in various styles and profiles, including those that capture the look of slate, wood shake and clay tile of practically any shade. Attic VentilationWe’ll also make sure the GAF Lifetime Roofing System is well ventilated by installing our Cobra® Attic Ventilation product, which effectively vents warm air and works together with the soffit to ensure proper airflow. This innovative ventilation system prevents problems like mold growth and poor energy efficiency.Ridge CapsLast, we install the ridge cap shingles, which fit onto the attic ventilation strips. These provide a sleek aesthetic while also boosting your roof’s protection against leaks.At Earl W. Johnston Roofing, we don’t take shortcuts or sacrifice quality for speed or price.
