Starter strips are one of the most overlooked parts of a quality roofing system. That's because some contractors try to use a cut-up 3-tab strip shingle as the "starter" course on the roof. Unfortunately, cut-up shingles may not have properly positioned adhesive to help reduce the risk of shingle blow-off. They also require time-consuming cutting and fastening on the roof. QuickStart® Peel & Stick Starter Roll is designed for fast and easy installation eliminating cutting and nailing of starter strips on the roof. The high-quality, properly positioned adhesive tightly locks the overlying shingles in place at the eaves and rakes, helping to prevent blow-off.
