Anatomy of Our GAF® Asphalt Shingles

At Wortham Bros, Inc., we are one of the few roofing contractors in the Dallas and Fort Worth area that offers top-quality asphalt shingles from GAF®. But what makes our asphalt shingles different from the rest? In this post, we share the key features of our shingle system and how each part protects your home. 

A Strong Leak Barrier

Our asphalt shingles boast a strong, leak barrier that’s essentially a self-adhering underlayment. It’s the roof’s last line of defense against water intrusion when the shingles suffer a debilitating blow that punctures it’s otherwise resilient surface. 

Roof Deck Protection

On top of the sheer strength of the shingles, your GAF® roof has an additional layer of protection that protects against weather damage – from wind-driven rain to billowing hail. As your local roof repair experts, we can recommend the best type for your home from our selection of synthetic, fiberglass-reinforced, and fire-resistant roof deck protection.

Start Strips

These individual shingle strips are installed at the eaves and the other vulnerable parts of the roof. This makes the entire structure less susceptible to shingle blow-offs while also adding an extra layer of insulation that helps better regulate your home.

Hip and Ridge Vents

Finally, your new GAF® asphalt shingles boast special hip and ridge vents that give it passive ventilation while also preventing moisture build-up. This also makes the entire structure cooler during summer and well-ventilated during the colder season.

These are just some of the key features of the asphalt shingles we install. At Wortham Bros, Inc., we’ll make sure your new investment is properly installed so you can take advantage of all these benefits.
