Weather Watch® Leak Barrier

Protect Your Home From Wind-Driven Rain And Damaging Ice Dams With A Waterproof Leak Barrier

IMPORTANT NOTE: The product Information Sheet for Weather Watch®  Leak Barrier with a print date of 10/07 listed the incorrect information that Weather Watch Leak Barrier was made with a “high temperature compound” and was “suitable for use with most metal roof applications”. This product is not made with a high temperature compound and it is not suitable for use under any metal roof. The incorrect information was listed on the web site from October 15th -18th  2007 and distributed in hard copy form, October 1st – October 18th  2007. A Quality Leak Barrier Will:
Create a 100% watertight seal that keeps water out at the most vulnerable areas of your roof (at the eaves and rakes, in valleys, around chimneys, etc.).

Weather Watch®, a quality leak barrier, will:
  • Protect your home by preventing costly repairs due to wall or ceiling staining
  • Help prevent leaks due to water damming in your gutters, wind-driven rain, and, in the North, damaging ice dams


Weather Watch® Mineral-Surfaced Leak Barrier is a key part of the GAF Lifetime Roofing System, and has even earned the prestigious Good Housekeeping Seal.

Don’t Put Your Home At Risk
  • The Codes Are Clear...
    North AreaProtection against ice dams isrequired at eaves wherever the January average temperature is 25°F or lower or where there is a possibility of ice forming in the eaves - i.e., the area labeled "North". 
  • But Be Prepared...
    Ice dams can still occur in areas where the average temperature is above 25°F (not to mention wind-driven rain) 
  • Avoid The Risks...
    If you are in an area that requires leak barrier protection – and if there is a leak – you could be putting your insurance coverage at risk by not installing it!
Homeowner’s Best Choice
  • Looks Better...
    Fiberglass reinforcement helps resist wrinkling and buckling – lays flatter under shingles 
  • Meets Building Codes...

Professional’s Best Choice
  • Helps Eliminate Waste...
    Special adhesive allows for one-time repositioning, but aggressively adheres over time 
  • Dependable...
    Self-seals around nails or metal roofing fasteners 
  • Saves Labor...
    Dual-side selvedge and split-back release film speed installation for greater homeowner value
