Waterguard Self-Adhered SBS Base and Cap Sheet
GAP has revolutionized self-adhered SBS modified bitumen systems on the market. Offering both fiberglass and polyester reinforced membranes, these products are the perfect solution for low slope residential applications. No flames, no kettles, no adhesives, and easy to install.
Using rolled metal valley under shingles is a thing of the past. Over time roofing over metal valleys causes pre-mature failure of the shingles due to excess heat transfer from the metal to the shingles. Valley Seal is a nailable SBS product that seals around the nails to produce a water tight valley system, without the heat transfer. Economical performance that will perform over the life of the shingles.
