A roof replacement is not just about a new batch of materials to cover the home. It is a complete system of several components working together to provide maximum protection and lasting performance. Let’s discuss the 6 features of the GAF lifetime roofing system.
Joe Ward Roofing, the premier roofing contractor in Miami and a certified GAF® Master Elite™ installer, has been providing homeowners with quality roofing replacements. Here are the essential components that stand as the foundation of the GAF Lifetime roofing system:
1. Roof Assessment
Removing the old roofing system is the first step in a replacement project. Firstly, we will evaluate your roofing in it bare entirety. For your roof deck to support the new batch of materials, we will look into the damage and repair it.
2. Leak Barrier
Certain areas of your roof are more vulnerable to leaks. As one of the roofing contractors in Miami trusted by GAF, we incorporate this extra-protective layer to prevent damage caused by wind-driven rain and water dams. This also reduces the risk of costly repairs.
3. Starter Strip Shingles
We’ll install these pre-cut strip shingles to the eaves of your roof. Their factory-applied adhesive speeds up the installation and reduces waste, while preventing the shingles from being blown off during strong windy conditions. They can also qualify you for our advanced wind warranty coverage.
4. Roof Deck Protection
This important roofing component lets moisture escape your attic. It also serves as a durable barrier against storms. As it lies flat, it assures you of a better-looking roof.
5. Quality Asphalt Shingles
Once the other components are in place, we will install your quality asphalt shingles. You can choose from GAF’s Lifetime Shingle options. They come in different colors, sizes, and finishes to match your home’s architecture.
6. Ridge Cap Shingles
These are an ideal finishing touch for your roof replacement. They also provide an added protection at the ridges and hips. Additionally, they accentuate the depth and beauty of your new roof.
These are the main components that boost the performance and appeal of the GAF lifetime roofing system. If you’re ready to have them installed in your home, choose Joe Ward Roofing.
