Starter shingles are installed under the first row of shingles on your roof to protect the seams from moisture. They can also help prevent blow-offs on the gables and give your roof a clean edge when viewed from the ground. Today, your trusted roof replacement expert, Independent Construction Services, discusses the features of CertainTeed’s Starter Shingle lines.
The SwiftStart metric standard starter shingle is designed to go with CertainTeed Landmark Series shingles. With SwiftStart, you can save labor and costs from cutting expensive field shingles. They don’t take as much time to install and meet the minimum 2” headlap requirement for metric shingles. Precision sealant is applied for sufficient sealing at the eaves.
This starter shingle line is specifically designed for use with Grandmanor® and Highland Slate® shingles. They are the only approved installation alternative to using the shingles themselves. High Performance Starter meets the accessory requirements for the CertainTeed Integrity Roofing System®. It features a straight factory-cut eave edge for a clean look.
