      Why WeatherBlocker Premium Starter Strip Shingles?

      Pre-cut eave/rake starter strips are one of the most overlooked parts of a quality roofing system. That’s because some roofing contractors will try to use a cut-up 3-tab strip shingle as the “starter” course on your roof.

      Unfortunately, these cut-up shingles may not have properly positioned adhesive to help reduce the risk of shingle blow-off. Using WeatherBlocker™ Premium Eave/Rake Starter Strip Shingles tightly locks your shingles in place and helps prevent shingle blow-off. Plus, installers like that they’re easy to use with no cutting on the roof, while homeowners feel good about the fact that they create less waste.
