Roofing companies will tell you that shingle blow-off is one of the worst things that can happen to your roof. After all, shingle blow-off can cause your roof to lose its water-tight properties which can allow leaks and cause water damage to your home’s interior. Thankfully, there’s a way to avoid shingle blow-off and that’s with GAF’s wide range of Starter Strip Shingles.
In this post, Roofing by Curry discusses your options when it comes to the GAF Starter Strip Shingles.
WeatherBlocker™ Starter Strip Shingles
The WeatherBlocker Premium Eave/Rake Starter Strip Shingles tightly locks your shingles in place to help prevent shingle blow-off with its factory-applied Dura Grip™ adhesive. They’re also easy to use since it doesn’t require the roof to be cut, making things easier for the contractors and creating less waste around your home.
Pro-Start® Starter Strip Shingles
Some homeowners tend to overlook the pre-cut eave starter strips in their roofs because some roofing contractors tend to use a 3-tab strip shingle as a “starter” for their roofing system. The mistake of overlooking them may cause you to miss the fact that the adhesive used may not be properly positioned and can increase the risk of shingle blow-off instead of reducing it. With the Pro-Start Eave/Rake Starter Strips, you’ll no longer have to worry about that as they are made with high-quality, properly positioned adhesive to do exactly what it’s made to do; prevent shingle-blow off.
The QuickStart variant of GAF’s Starter Strip Shingles is probably the easiest and fastest one to apply out of all the Starter Strip Shingle options. This is because it can simply be applied thanks to its peel and stick design, eliminating the necessity of nailing or cutting starter strip shingles to your roof. Don’t be fooled by its simple peel and stick design, however, as it’s still of high-quality manufacturing and can do its job of preventing shingle blow-off just as well as the rest of the Starter Strip Shingle options carried by GAF.
Contrary to the rest of your options, the StarterMatch variant of the starter strip shingles are usually used in conjunction with the WeatherBlocker Premium Eave/Rake Starter Strip Shingles. It’s specifically designed to complement the WeatherBlocker while aiding it in its job of preventing shingle blow-off.
