The decking forms the base of your roof and supports the weight of the roofing shingles on top. If water manages to make its way into your decking, mold and rot 0 which can easily affect other parts of the building – may form. Any issue with roof decking is compounded by the fact there’s no foolproof way of inspecting your decking for signs of damage. The only way to know for sure if there’s rot in the decking is to tear the roof off.
It’s important that the roof decking has adequate protection against leaks and excess moisture. Total Roof Services Corp., your trusted roofing contractor, recommends installing these GAF deck protection products to make sure rot or mold doesn’t form in your decking:
- FeltBuster® – This value-priced underlayment prevents wind-driven rain from infiltrating your home from underneath the shingles. FeltBuster is made from non-asphaltic polypropylene roofing, which lasts longer than conventional felts. And, if you’re concerned about your roof’s appearance, FeltBuster is flatter than typical felt. As such, it won’t draw attention away from your roof.
- Deck-Armor™ – If you live in a sunny area, we recommend this breathable ultraviolet (UV) stabilized polypropylene underlayment, which provides excellent protection against wind-driven rain, trapped moisture and UV damage. Compared to traditional felt, it also provides 50% more coverage.
- Tiger Paw™ – Thanks to its specially designed surface, Tiger Paw underlayment has excellent walkability for installers and increased resistance against foot traffic.
All of these products have received the Good Housekeeping Seal, which means they’ve been vetted by the experts at the Good Housekeeping Institute, a widely recognized source of accurate, trusted product reviews.
