Time and time again, CertainTeed® has proven the reliability and quality of their products. They also ensure their products suit varying roofing needs, so each of their roofing products comes in a range of options.
In this article, Edge 2 Edge Roofing, a trusted company that provides roof replacement and storm damage roof repair services, focuses on three starter shingle options offered by CertainTeed. We discuss their features and advantages so that you can have a better idea what product best matches your roofing system.
SwiftStart metric starter shingles are designed specifically to match the CertainTeed Landmark® Series shingles. These starter shingles allow you to save time and money as they eliminate the need to cut expensive field shingles that may not be totally compatible with your roof shingles.
The starter shingles from the SwiftStart line are code-compliant. They meet the two-inch headlap requirement for metric shingles, and they also feature a precision sealant to ensure proper sealing at the eaves. Each 18-piece bundle can cover 116 linear feet.
High-Performance Starter is designed specifically for GrandManor® and Highland Slate® shingles. These starter shingles meet the accessory requirements for the CertainTeed Integrity Roof System®, which is made up of shingles, underlayments, ventilation and accessory products. So if you’re installing new residential roofing, it would be best to have the starter shingles installed as well. High-Performance Starter shingles also have a straight factory-cut eave edge to give your roof a clean look. A 34-piece bundle can cover 102 linear feet.
Presidential Starter is best suited for Presidential Shake® TL and Presidential Shake® applications, but it can also be an acceptable option for Arcadia Shake® shingles. Starter shingles from this line also meet the accessory requirements for the CertainTeed Integrity Roof System, so they can contribute to the optimum performance of your roof even under bad weather conditions.
