Starter shingles for roofing are designed as a starter course before installing the first course of shingles. Pro-Cut HP42 Starter Shingles are an easy, cost-saving alternative to the traditional method of cutting tabs from 3-tab shingles to form a starter course. Pro-Cut HP42 Starter Shingles may also be used as a rake edge strip to prevent wind uplift of the field shingles.
