Starter Strip Shingles - WeatherBlocker

WeatherBlocker™ Premium Eave/Rake Starter Strip Shingles

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 some roofing 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.

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
