Helps prevent shingle blow-off and save time with a convenient peel-and-stick starter roll
High Quality
Tightly locks your shingles in place and helps prevent shingle blow-off
Saves Time
Peel & stick design allows for fast and easy installation
Eliminates the need for nailing or cutting starter strip shingles on the roof


Starter strips are one of the most overlooked parts of a quality roofing system! That’s because some roofing contractors try to use a cut-up 3-tab strip shingle as the “starter” course on your roof. Unfortunately, cut-up shingles may not have properly positioned adhesive to help reduce the risk of shingle blow-off. QuickStart® Peel & Stick Starter Roll is designed for fast and easy installation. High-quality, properly aligned adhesive tightly locks the shingles in place and helps prevent shingle blow-off.

  • Looks Better:  Straighter roof edges and no messy black cement dripping onto your new white edge metal.
  • Helps Prevent Shingle Blow-Off:  Factory-applied Dura Grip™ Adhesive helps to tightly lock your shingles in place.
  • Peace of Mind:  Eligible for up to a Lifetime ltd. warranty when installed on Lifetime Shingle roofs.1
  • Fast Installation:  Peel-and-stick roll eliminates cutting and fastening starter strips on the roof.
  • Versatile:  Can be used with a wide variety of asphalt shingles having exposure of 6” (152 mm) or less.
