Starter Shingles - Calgary Roofing Contractor
Starter shingles are the first shingles of a roof system. They are installed on top of the drip edge/rake edge and leak barriers and begin the overlapping pattern for the remainder of shingles on the roof. One single row of starter shingles is installed everywhere your roof ends.
As with every other part of a roof system, different types of starter shingles are offered by many different manufacturers. The manufacturer of the field shingle you chose will choose the best starter shingles for you.
Some manufacturers produce starter shingles which can be used with the field shingles from their competitors. However, not all starter shingles are interchangeable.
