Your Herndon, VA, Home
GAF Asphalt Roofing You Can Depend On
Beauty is only one element in your Herndon, VA, asphalt roofing. While you want it to look great – you always need it to be solid and withstand the weather we see in the area.
Not all asphalt roofing is equal. The lower quality asphalt on the market may look good when installed – but it will not last for twenty or more years when faced with the Fairfax County weather.
When replacing your roof, you want it to last as long as possible so you do not have to replace it again in just a few years. That is where Milcon can help you!
Our Asphalt Roofing
At Milcon, we understand the many differences in the quality of asphalt roofing. Every homeowner should get the best for their money. And that is why we only install the best of the best – GAF asphalt roofing.
GAF has been around for years and is considered the leading manufacturer in the asphalt roofing market. But what makes the GAF system so great we want to shout it from the rooftops?
Why We Only Recommend GAF
GAF has been a top name in the market for years – and for good reason. Each asphalt shingle is made with extreme weather conditions in mind. Plus, they offer a roofing system that is installed with their asphalt shingles to ensure a solid and beautiful roof.
Their roofing system ensures every component installed on your roof works together to protect your home ultimately. The components of the roofing systems include:
- A waterproof leak barrier protects those vulnerable spots in your roof, like eaves, chimneys, and valleys. The barrier is reinforced with special fiberglass to make it self-seal around these weak areas.
- Top-notch heavy-duty roof deck protection ensures it will not break down over the years.
- Starter strip shingles contain the proper adhesive to ensure each row of asphalt that is laid will lock in place firmly.
- Attic ventilation is included with the system to ensure everything is adequately ventilated to make your asphalt roofing last for years to come.
- Hip and ridge cap shingles add depth to the roof while also protecting the rest of your roof.
Of course, the asphalt shingles themselves are a massive component of the roofing system, as they have been tested in over 150 tests to ensure their strength, durability, and beauty.
