The Various Starter Strip Shingles from GAF

Pro-Start® and WeatherBlocker® Starter Strips

Starter strip shingles make for a cost-efficient alternative to cut-up shingles. They are firmly attached to the roofing system, thanks to a superior-quality and properly applied adhesive. It is guaranteed not to peel off during high winds and other weather disturbances. In terms of aesthetics, these components give your roof edges a smooth, uninterrupted profile.
These two starter strip shingle brands are similar in function. Even though they differ in terms of bundle coverage, Pro-Start and WeatherBlocker ensure reduced weight and labor upon installation during roof repairs or replacements.

QuickStart® Peel & Stick Starter Roll

This product is designed for fast and easy installation. Like those mentioned above, it has a high-quality adhesive for blow-off resistance. In fact, it has a special deck-side adhesive that allows roofers to reposition them once while adhering quickly over time.


This product is a perfect complement to the GAF WeatherBlocker Premium Eave/Rake starter strip shingles, as well as for the Lifetime Designer line of asphalt shingles. StarterMatch™ comes in an array of colors such as Adobe Sunset, Black Oak and Mission Brown. These give your home’s exterior a boost in terms of aesthetic appeal. It also has StainGuard® protection that prevents blue-green algae growth.
