Residential Roof Deck Protection

Before laying down shingles we install a roof deck protection fabric over the plywood of the roof. This fabric provides a critical extra layer of protection between your shingles and roof deck, preventing wind-driven rain from infiltrating the shingles and causing damage to your roof structure or the inside of your home.

For this, we highly recommend DeckArmor by GAF. We have used it time and again for its superior breathability that allows trapped moisture to escape while at the same time prevents moisture from leaking in.

Depending on your roofing needs, we may also install an extra leak barrier for even further protection.

Commercial Roofing Membranes

For commercial roofing projects, we highly recommend the modified bitumen membranes by Soprema.

They use the most advanced technology in the roof waterproofing industry of SBS modified bitumen reinforced with non-woven polyester or glass mat. For years we have trusted their products for their incredible durability and resistance to even the most severe weather conditions.

Soprema has various waterproofing membranes, including their new 'green' sustainable roof waterproofing system.
