Protect Your Home From Wind-Driven Rain And Damaging Ice Dams With A Waterproof Leak Barrier
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.).
, 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
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...
Protection 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!
