Installing Asphalt Shingles? Save a Step and Some Money!

Installing Asphalt Shingles? Save a Step and Some Money!

Roofing contractors for years have relied on cutting 3 tab shingles down to make a starter course when installing an asphalt shingle roof. Not only is this a waste of expensive shingles, but the time it takes to complete this process is a costly one.

ShingleStarter™ from MFM Building Products replaces the time and waste of cutting shingle tabs. Self-adhering ShingleStarter comes in a continuous roll that measures 7.2" wide x 33.5' long to make this first course a breeze. The product is a black granulated surface laminated to an aggressive rubberized asphalt adhesive system, which can be placed directly to the roof substrate or overtop common felt paper. It can even be applied over smooth surfaced self-adhering underlayments.

ShingleStarter features a "sealing strip" that bonds to the shingles to prevent wind uplift at the roof edge. When installing in colder temperatures, the shingles may not adhere at first, but the temperatures warm, the sealing strip bonds to the underside of the shingle for complete waterproofing protection.

ShingleStarter also is self-sealing, so when roofing fasteners are driven through it, the membrane will seal around the fastener to prevent any water intrusion. ShingleStarter also helps to prevent damage from ice dams along the roof edge.

Easy to use and install...saves time and money...why not consider ShingleStarter on your next roofing project! Contact MFM Customer Service at 800-882-7663 for pricing information.
