Pro-Start® Eave/Rake Starter Strip Shingles

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

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

A pre-cut eave/rake starter strip is:

  • A cost-effective alternative to using cut-up shingles as your starter course
  • Made with a high-quality, properly positioned adhesive that will tightly lock your shingles in place to help prevent blow-off
  • Easy to use and install, with no cutting on the roof
