Asked by MEB February 21, 2020

Hello MEB - The Starter Shingle Roll is not designed for this application. It is designed for applications with asphalt shingles. Thank you for your inquiry!

Asked by Sam November 24, 2019

The starter strip goes under the first row. All the subsequent rows have shingles under their butt joints.

can this be used as the only barrier in an under-stairs roof

Asked by Duppie July 4, 2019

It is my guess the answer is yes; the product is made for roof exposure. i don't know how well the thin adhesive band near the edge of the shingle side will seal to the next layer, but if there is a slope, this should work fine. If you have ice buildup, then all bets are off.

I am using this product also on the rakes. I noticed that the half-inch strip that I thought was ...

Asked by Nipp April 26, 2019

Hello Nipp, after several days of direct exposure to the sun, the sealant will soften and self-seal. Thank you for your inquiry!

Need to know if fire and ice rolled roofing can be used without shingles

Asked by Steve October 24, 2018

This is a starter shingle. Goes under shingles along entire edge if roof. Then you run your shingles on top. Not sure. But, you may be looking for Rolled Roofing 90#.

can this product be exposed to the weather?

Asked by mjp September 17, 2018

No this product is not for interior use, you could use the Vycor Plus from GCP. It is a door and window sealant tape and would be better for your application.

Should the starter strip overhang the drip edge or should it be flush with he drip edge? Can the...

Asked by RSP July 15, 2018

RSP, The Owens Corning Starter Shingle Roll should be placed granular side-up with the top seal strip closest to the outer edge of the roof. Remove the backing from the underside of the roll and carefully align the edge of the roll flush with the drip edge. Secure the roll by pressing it firmly against the drip edge and underlayment. After properly applying the Owens Corning Starter Shingle Roll the roof shingles should be laid overhanging the starter strip by a distance of 1/4” to 3/4” to direct runoff into the gutter. Be sure to press or roll the first course of shingles firmly down onto the starter shingle roll top seal strip. This seal helps prevent against leaks and against damage to shingles caused by wind lift. Remember that personal safety is paramount when working on any roof. I was picking up supplies for installing a rooftop ridge vent at my local Home Depot when I stumbled across their Werner/UpGear roof-safety harnesses. I thought that these things would cost a fortune but HD had two different kits by UpGear, one at about $99 and one at about $135. It looks like the difference between the two kits is the type of rope-grab device; one being manually operated as needed when moving about on the roof, the other having a self-trailing rope-grab which allows for greater mobility. Both kits are complete units, each containing a 50’ rope, a harness, a lanyard, and a temporary roof anchor. I purchased the self-trailing kit and within a half hour of arriving back at home I was safely working on top of our two-story home. Home Depot also carries permanent roof anchors by UpGear for about $22 each. I will be attaching one of these to each end of our roof so that I will have a readily available safety system when needed, such as when cleaning gutters or installing Christmas lights.

Wonder if this would stick to the ridge vent?

Asked by BuddyPhil May 28, 2018

excellent stick. I don't know about the ridge vent but it sticks great to the drip edge.

Do you require a layer of tar paper under this?

Asked by NewYorker September 2, 2017

Hi NewYorker, underlayment is required under Owens Corning Starter Shingle Roll. Thank you for your inquiry!

It was the first time I had to shingle a roof. I watched many u-tube instructional videos and originally wanted to just use regular shingles. I do not think they would be as strong as your shingle starter roll. Also I had been watching construction projects in the area and noticed that they did not use any on the up slope rake. It was simple to use and should withstand the Colorado weather.

At first I thought this was yet another solution to a non-existent problem...a way of Owens Corning to squeeze a couple more bucks out of a roof project. I was wrong. Its a big help to guarantee a nice straight edge with minimal gaps for water to exploit. It goes on quick and easy and takes a lot of the hassle out of the first course. It's thin compared to the actual shingle, but it has to be in order to roll. Can be installed by one person, but two is better.
