Product Overview

Superior-quality roof deck protection should protect your home by providing a critical extra layer of protection between your shingles and your roof deck. GAF Tiger Paw Roof Deck Protection helps prevent wind-driven rain (or water from other sources) from infiltrating under your shingles and causing damage to your roof structure, or to the inside of your home. Easy to walk on when installing.
  • This product is water-resistant; it is NOT waterproof.  It is intended as a secondary layer of water-shedding protection underneath the primary roof covering, such as asphalt shingles. Do NOT USE as a temporary roof or “dry-in” solution to protect property or possessions.
  • Synthetic, non-woven construction provides at least 600% (i.e. 7-times) greater tear strength than standard #30 felt in addition to water resistance
  • Helps remove nearly twice as much damaging moisture from your roof deck as the leading synthetic non-breathable underlayment
  • Tiger paw roof deck protection resists wrinkling and buckling that can telegraph through your roof shingles and detract from its finished appearance
  • Less chance of blow-off, up to 129% higher nail pull-through strength than #30 felt helps keep the product in place
  • Safer for installers, specially designed surface helps provide excellent walkability for installers versus conventional felts or typical synthetic underlayment
  • Deck-side coating, anti-skid back coating helps improve walkability, while also helping to keep the roll stationary during installation
  • Stronger, synthetic, non-woven construction provides at least 600% (i.e. 7-times) greater tear strength than standard #30 felt
  • Cooler to work with, light-grey surface is cooler in hot weather than conventional black felts
  • 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
  • Versatile, can withstand UV degradation for 180-days, if necessary

Tiger paw can be used on walls ?

Asked by Max December 14, 2020

Answers

Hello Max, this product is designed as roofing underlayment. Alternate applications, such as your installation are not recommended. Thank you.

How thick is this? it says it is 5.4"

Asked by Mark July 22, 2020
2
Answers

It's definitely not 5.4 inches; more like the thickness of a couple of 3 by 5 cards. I tried looking it up on the manufacturer's web site, they don't specify a thickness. FYI, I liked using this material; I definitely felt more secure working up on the roof of my shed with this material down.

Can I use this for a 3 tab shingle roof? Or only recommend for under metal roofs?? Thanks!

Tiger Paw can be used under a 3-tab roofing shingle and is also good for under metal roofing. Thanks for your question.

Is it vapor permbable?

Asked by Monty October 8, 2018

Answer

Monty, If you look @ the gaf website you will see mention of Tiger Paw product 'Moisture-Control Design" & it's ability to remove nearly twice as much moisture as the leading synthetic non-breathable underlayment. They don't really come out & say the material is breathable. However, they do have a product called Deck Armor, which they tout as a "Premium Breathable Roof Deck Protection"

Is Tiger Paw Roof Deck waterproof and how long should I expect it last?

Asked by Diego September 24, 2018
3
Answers

Diego, From the manufacturer's web page on this product: "Tiger Paw™ Roof Deck Protection is water resistant, it is NOT WATERPROOF" This is an underlayment product. You have to install a real roof on top of it.

I'm confused. The spec sheet says each roll is 4' wide x 250' long which equals 1,000 SF, yet th...

It’s because you overlay by 50%. This way, except for the very bottom which is where you start, there will actually end up being two complete layers. It may be overkill as it is a very good product but I did as suggested and very satisfied with the results

The product description does mention metal roofs.

Answers

This is not a bubble underlayment. It is about as thick as #30 felt paper

Do you staple this down similar to black paper

Yes

Does tiger paw underlayment go over or under ice dam products? If it goes over how much should it overlap?

Asked by razor1 October 14, 2016
2
Answers

Since the ice dam is the first course of underlayment put on the roof, the tiger paw would be installed on top of it. The ice dam product I used, Grace 36" x 75 ft Ice & Water Shield, had marking on it to show how much of an overlap is required. See my picture

I really like this product. It was easier to install than tar paper since it is just about impossible to tear. It also provides a better work surface, like the name implies.

I used Tiger Paw on my barn roof that is a 4/12 pitch. The underside of this underlayment is rubberized but not the upper side. To me it was quite slick unless I would stand on it, no traction when kneeling or sitting on it. A moor grippier top surface would make this underlayment much safer to work on.
