Help Prevent Shingle Blow-Off And Eliminate Waste With An Eave/Rake Starter Strip

Pre-Cut Eave/Rake Starter Strips Are One Of The Most Overlooked Parts Of A Roofing System!

That’s because it’s easy for a contractor to use a cut-up shingle as the “starter” course on your roof. Unfortunately, cut-up shingles may not have properly-positioned adhesive to ensure adequate wind resistance.

Using a pre-cut eave/rake starter strip will:
  • Provide a cost-effective alternative to using cut-up shingles as your starter course 
  • Include a high-quality, properly-positioned adhesive that will tightly lock your shingles in place to help prevent blow-off 
  • Be easy to use and install, with no cutting on the roof
