      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.
