The GAF Lifetime Roofing System From Start to Finish

The GAF Lifetime Roofing System From Start to Finish

The GAF Lifetime Roofing System is a complete roofing system offered by GAF, one of the largest and most respected manufacturers in the industry. ABM Services & Renovations shares an overview of how the GAF Lifetime Roofing System is put together, from start to finish.

The GAF Lifetime Roofing System From Start to Finish


The GAF Lifetime Roofing System can be installed on existing roofing structures. A typical roof installation begins by stripping the old roofing down to the decking material, after which the structure is inspected for water damage and other factors that might affect performance. Repairs will be conducted as needed.

Leak Barriers

GAF leak barriers are separate from the underlayment. They seal valleys, joints and edges, complementing the flashing that will be installed later.

Roof Deck Protection

Also known as the underlayment or felts, the roof deck protection is an important roofing component and is a critical part of the roof replacement process. GAF’s roof deck protection options prevent moisture infiltration while allowing moisture on the roofing deck to dry out.

Starter Strip Shingles

The roof edges are vulnerable to wind damage, which can later lead to water intrusion. The GAF Lifetime Roofing system features starter strips that come in rolls, which match the rest of the roof. Starter strips are reinforced using special adhesives for an impenetrable roof edge.

Lifetime Shingles

GAF Lifetime Shingles are then installed using a time-tested installation procedure that results in exceptional performance with less waste. Since all parts of the system are carefully designed to work together, only GAF-certified installers like our team members are allowed to install the GAF Lifetime Roofing System.

Attic Ventilation

Attic ventilation is an important component of roof design. It prevents heat and moisture from getting trapped in the attic. The GAF Lifetime Roofing System features Cobra Attic Ventilation, a ridge vent system that helps vent warm and moist air and complements the soffit vents in creating efficient airflow.

Ridge Caps 

Traditionally, roof ridges are capped using cut-up pieces of roofing shingles. The GAF Lifetime Roofing System features specially designed ridge caps that create a clean look and fit well with the attic ventilation system.
