Benefits of a GAF Lifetime Roofing System for Your Irving or Arlington Home
Your local Irving and Arlington Roofing Company know that you have several options when it comes time to replace your roof that is unique to each home and its owner. A GAF roofing system is one of the most trusted in the industry and will provide superb protection, beauty, and reliability for many years. In this article, we'll discuss the different quality measures and steps required for a beautiful flawless install.
Removal of Existing Roofing Materials
The initial phase in the GAF Lifetime roof replacement procedure is the removal of the existing roofing materials. This incorporates the careful removal of old shingles, underlayment or ice/water shield barrier layers, ridge caps, and any accumulated debris. Once the roofing materials are completely removed, a professional GAF roofer will perform an evaluation of all key components and structures. This is done to reveal any underlying damage so that proper repairs can be made before installation of the new roof takes place.
Ice & Water Shield/Leak Barrier and Surface Deck Protection
With the surface and support structures ready to go, your Irving and Arlington Roofer will begin to install the leak-barrier next. This self-adhesive waterproof membrane keeps moisture and other types of storm damage away from the surface and damage prone areas. When joined with the installation of GAF deck protection materials, you'll have better protection from issues such as blown off shingles, buckling, and leaks.
Shingle Prep and Installation
Once the underlying surface has been completely removed, evaluated and prepped, shingle installation can begin. The initial step for an Irving and Arlington roofing professional is to install starter shingles on the perimeter(s) which provides added protection from shingle blow off and leakage. From that point, asphalt shingles are applied following GAF's meticulous process. GAF shingles come in a full range of styles and colors, enabling you to create the desired appearance for your home.
Roof Hip and Ridge Protection
Once the shingles have been completely installed, the roof ridge vent becomes one of the last steps of the innovative GAF roofing system procedure. A ridge vent is applied to remove trapped heat and moisture in the attic before the installation of cap shingles on the ridge and hip to ensure a clean, consistent appearance. Together, this formula of innovative application and roofing materials results in a beautiful roofing system that increases the value and weather protection of your home.
