The many advantages to using a starter shingle that’s designed to save you time and money. 

TopShield® is designed with the contractor in mind, with products that are built to make it easy for you to excel at your job. This is true of their starter shingles, which are made to provide superior performance while giving you a fast and cost-effective install. Read on to learn about the many advantages of using TopShield® Starter+ Shingles as your starter shingle of choice. 

Waterproof 

Starter shingles are an integral part of an asphalt shingle roof system, acting as a barrier for you’re the roof to protect eaves and rake edges. TopShield® Starter+ Shingles sealant ensures an effective seal between the starter and the first course of shingles. As the essential first layer of a weather-tight roof, these shingles help the roof shed water rather than letting it slip under the shingles. 

Improved wind resistance 

Starter shingles also greatly improve wind resistance by sealing the finished shingles to the roof. Starter shingles help prevent shingles from blowing off in harsh weather conditions and generally lend themselves to the performance of the roof. TopShield® Starter+ Shingles sealant ensures an effective seal between the starter and the first course of shingles; they are designed with a strong adhesion to lock shingles in place to prevent blow off along the eaves of the roof. 

Cleaner look 

Cut-up shingles can give an uneven appearance to the roofline, where starter shingles give a clean, sharp, uniform edge that gives your roof a more attractive and finished look. Apply TopShield® Starter+ Shingles to the eaves prior to shingle application and it will allow for the proper alignment of the courses of shingles. 

Reduce waste 

TopShield® Starter+ Shingles reduce waste by eliminating the need to cutoff tabs or headlap. Plus, it only takes one bundle to provide 105 feet of actual coverage. 

Quicker installation 

Using starters make the installation faster and easier so your new roof will be ready for the next storm. Now, with TopShield® Starter+ Shingles sealant ensuring an effective seal between the starter and the first course of shingles there is no need to cut down 3-tab shingles to use as a starter strip, saving you time and money.
