Eave & Rake Starter Strip Shingles

Here at Chase Construction North West Inc.,  we place the most emphasis on ensuring GAF ProStartthat your new roof lasts for its optimum life capacity. To reach this goal, we utilize GAF’s Pro-Start® Eave and Rake Starter Strip shingles. This product allows the homeowner to feel secure in the adhesion of their shingles as it prevents shingle blow-off as well as eliminates waste. Pre-cut eave and rake starter strips are said to be the one of the most overlooked parts of a roofing system. With over 13 years of experience in the industry, we use this product on every roofing project because customer satisfaction and safety are our ultimate goals in installation.

Benefits in Design and Installation

Some contractors attempt using a cut-up strip shingle as the “starter” course on your roof. However, this technique doesn’t take into account that these shingles may not have properly positioned adhesive to provide security in terms of adequate wind resistance. Using a product such as Pro-Start® offers many benefits. Such strips provide a cost-effective alternative to using cut-up shingles. Perhaps most importantly, they include a high-quality, properly positioned adhesive that is designed to tightly lock your shingles into place as to prevent blow-off.  They’re the homeowner’s best choice for a number of reasons. First, they look better and help construct straighter roof edges while preventing messy black cement from dripping onto your new white edge metal. Factory applied Dura Grip™ Adhesive helps to lock down the roof edges at the eaves and rakes leading to your roof’s best performance. GAF has performed trials and test on their Pro Start Starter Strip shingles that concluded that they help to prevent both blow-off and potential leaks. This yields even more peace of mind and assurance to the homeowner. Lastly, superior warranties strengthen this feeling even further. GAF offers increased wind coverage on many shingles when you use starter strips. They are also covered by up a lifetime ltd. warranty when installed on lifetime shingle roofs. We are Master Elite partners with GAF which exemplifies the trust GAF Master Elite Chase Constructionthey place in our ability and craftsmanship. The pro-start shingles are also equipped with a number of factors to make installation more efficient and effective. They save time and labor by eliminating wasted time (or material) stemming from cutting your own starter strips. This allows us to offer greater homeowner value which is a goal we place in the center of our operations. Pro-start® offers 71% more coverage per bundle which means less for our crew to carry and handle on the roof. The perforated design eliminates cutting which also makes it safer to work with. GAF not only places value in their customers but also their environment and surroundings. This product reduces landfill waste by eliminating shingle scraps.
