Mar 4, 2019 | Home Improvement

Leak barriers help prevent leaks and costly repairs due to ice dams and wind-driven rain. They provide extra protection between your roofing shingles and the roof deck. Read on as Turner Home Improvement Contractors LLC, your trusted roofing contractor, presents some options available to you.

Preventing Costly Water Damage with GAF’s Leak Barriers


Eaves, rakes, valleys and chimneys are the most vulnerable areas of your shingle or metal roof. They are prone to leaks due to water backing up in your gutters. As such, they need further reinforcement if you are to avoid the potential damage of leaks.

The StormGuard® Film-Surfaced Leak Barrier prevents such leaks. It also protects your home from expensive wall and ceiling stains. It is a key part of the GAF Lifetime Roofing System and has earned the Good Housekeeping Seal (U.S. only). Fiberglass reinforcement helps resist wrinkling and buckling for a more uniform look. High-temperature compound for asphalt shingle and metal roof systems adds to its versatility. It is eligible for warranties, from 10-year ltd. to a Lifetime ltd., depending on materials used.
