FeltBuster® High-Traction Synthetic Roofing Felt is a key part of the GAF Lifetime Roofing System, 1 and has earned the Good Houekeeping Seal.2

  • Enhanced Walkability:  Special spunbound surface helps provide increased traction vs. traditional asphalt felts.
  • Durable Construction:  Non-asphaltic, polypropylene construction for long-lasting performance – unlike conventional felts that can disintegrate over time.
  • Competitively Priced:  Per square with typical asphalt felts (pricing varies by market).
  • A Better Looking Roof:  Lies flatter than typical felts and avoids "telegraphing" of wrinkles, which can detract from the look of your new roof.  
  • Peace of Mind:  Part of the GAF Lifetime Roofing System and eligible for a Lifetime ltd. warranty when installed on Lifetime Shingle roofs.1


Tiger Paw™


Tiger-Paw™ Roof Deck Protection is a key part of the GAF Lifetime Roofing System, 2 and has earned the Good Housekeeping Seal.3

  • Better-Looking Roof:  Resists wrinkling and buckling that can “telegraph” through your roof shingles and detract from its finished appearance.
  • Safer for Installers:  Specially designed surface helps provide excellent walk-ability for installers versus conventional felts or typical synthetic underlayments.
  • Stronger:  Synthetic, non-woven construction provides at least 600% (i.e. 7 times) greater tear strength than standard #30 felt.4
  • Durable Construction:  Non-asphaltic, polypropylene construction will not rot or become brittle - unlike conventional felts, which can disintegrate over time.
  • Flexible Application:  Recommended for use with asphaltic shingle roof systems. May also be used with non-asphaltic systems, such as slate, wood, metal, or tile.5
  • UV Stabilized Polypropylene Construction:  Resists UV degradation for up to 180 days.6
