Starter Strip Shingles
GAF, North America’s premier roofing company, offers two of the best options for starter strip shingles in the entire industry: the Pro-Start Eave/Rake Starter Strip and the Weatherblocker Premium Eave/Rake Starter Strip. Both options help to speed shingle installation. They also help prevention of shingle blow-offs.
GAF Starter Strip Shingles are pre-cut, which insures that they will be easy to use and install. Typically, starter shingles are regular shingles that have been cut for easier installation. However, this can be a time consuming process, not to mention it can increase costs because the leftover cut shingles are no longer usable.
The most innovative feature of GAF Starter Strip Shingles is the high-quality adhesive that locks shingles in place to prevent blow-off. All GAF Starter Strip Shingles feature this adhesive, known as DuraGrip and offered on all top of the line GAF shingles.
Other benefits to using Starter Strip Shingles come in the form of warranties. When Starter Strip Shingles are used, GAF will offer increased wind coverage on all shingles. When installed on Lifetime Shingle roofs, GAF Starter Strip Shingles also come with the option of a lifetime limited warranty.
Besides being an excellent choice for homeowners, GAF Starter Strip Shingles are preferred by many installers. Time and labor is saved with the pre-cut strips, which also provide easier and faster clean-up. The perforated pre-cut design is also a safety benefit. Even professionals make mistakes and eliminating the need for cutting shingles is one less opportunity for injury.
