Tarco, North Little Rock, Ark., offers LeakBarrier Self-Adhering Quick Roll Shingle Starter, a fiberglass-reinforced, asphalt-coated roll for use as a shingle-starter course. The top side is surfaced with ceramic granules to protect against UV, weathering and physical damage; the bottom side has a self-adhering compound of a high tack SBS modified asphalt protected by a release film for easy installation. The product ensures proper shingle alignment when applied to rakes and eaves prior to shingle installation. The seal tab provides protection from wind uplift and the easy-to-handle 7-inch rolls eliminate the need for field cutting of three-tab or roll roofing products. The pre-cut design reduces labor cost and waste.
