Starter strip shingles include a high-quality, properly positioned adhesive that will tightly lock your shingles in place to help prevent shingle blow-off. They aren an optional add-on that help ensure weather resistance of the entire roofing system. Installed at the eaves and rakes, starter strips waterproof your roof’s most vulnerable areas.
GAF, North America’s leading roofing manufacturer, offers four starter strip shingle products, each with exceptional features. As one of the premier local residential and commercial roofers, WestPro sheds light on what makes each GAF starter strip special below.
A cost-effective alternative to cut-up shingles, this product is eligible for limited warranty when used in conjunction with a Lifetime Shingle. It mimics the color of the GAF Lifetime Designer Shingle next to it, providing an attractive finishing touch to your roof and ensuring visual harmony.
If you want your roof replacement to be completed fast, this product is for you. As a peel-and-stick roll, QuickStart eliminates the need for cutting and fastening of starter strips without sacrificing reliability. It is compatible with a bevy of GAF shingles with exposure of six inches or less.
Like other GAF starter strip products, WeatherBlocker features factory-applied Dura Grip™ Adhesive to seal the roof edges. Thanks to its perforated design, cutting on the roof is no longer necessary. Compared to ordinary 3-tab shingles, it has 42% more coverage per bundle. On top of being eligible for a limited warranty, it helps unlock enhanced wind coverage on many GAF shingles.
This option shares all the good things about WeatherBlocker except its coverage per bundle is at least 50% more than typical 3-tab shingles. GAF-certified roof repair and replacement specialists admits that it also decrease landfill waste by reducing shingle scraps to zero.
