Although you can judge GAF asphalt roofing by its interconnected high-quality shingles, there’s actually more to your roof than these tiles. The performance of your roof depends on the quality of the entire system, a set of components working together to meet its ultimate goal.

6 Components of the GAF Lifetime Roofing System

As a proud GAF Master Elite™ contractor, Century Roofing and Siding wants to help you understand how the GAF Lifetime Roofing System really works. Let us give you an overview of each component and help you fully appreciate the value of asphalt roofing in Ottawa.

1. Leak Barrier

Once the roof deck is in good shape and all the necessary repairs are done, the first component we install is the leak barrier. Made from first-rate materials, this self-adhering, waterproof membrane protects the most vulnerable areas of your roof from water leakage.

2. Roof Deck Protection

Other than making shingle laying a breeze, this serves as your home interior’s major barrier against water damage. This layer of protection prevents any form of water infiltration under your shingles.

3. Starter Strip Shingles

To protect your roof against strong winds, we install these shingles at the eaves at your roof.

4. Asphalt Shingles

They need no introduction. They don’t just protect your roof against Mother Nature; they also enhance the look of your curb appeal. Asphalt comes in a variety of styles to emulate the stunning appeal of other materials at a fraction of cost.

Whether it’s Ottawa flat roofing or any pitched roof, GAF is the true gold standard.

5. Ridge Vent

Along with eave vents, the role of this component is to remove the damaging heat and moisture from your attic.

6. Ridge Cap Shingles

Because ridge vents alone would leave your roof vulnerable to high winds and rain, we install cap shingles on the hip and ridge of your home.

Be it asphalt or metal roofing in Ottawa, you can rely on our proven installation expertise. We handle every project with safety and efficiency to ensure the job gets done on schedule without causing any damage to your property.
