NEW ORLEANS, La. – TAMKO Building Products, Inc. introduces the Perforated Starter shingle to its roofing product line. Made from fiberglass mat coated with asphalt and surfaced with ceramic granules, the Perforated Starter course shingle is the answer to roofing contractors need for an easy to install starter strip prior to shingle application. The perforation ensures that contractors no longer lose time field cutting shingles to the appropriate size while reducing related waste.
“Roofing contractors need more ways to make their jobs hassle-free,” said Vice President of Sales and Marketing for TAMKO, Stephen McNally. “With TAMKO’s Perforated Starter shingle, you remove the tedious time-consuming job of field cutting shingles for the starter course so roofing contractors can finish a job quicker with less waste.”
TAMKO’s Perforated Starter shingle is intended for application to the eave or rake edge of a roof to assist with proper alignment of the shingle course. The starter strip also fills in the spaces under the shingle joints and helps the first course of shingles to seal. Perforated Starter comes in a bundle of 16 full-size (13 ¼ inches) perforated shingles to be separated into 32 starter strip shingles (6 ⅝ inches).
Available now to customers nationwide, the Perforated Starter shingle is being produced at TAMKO’s Frederick, Maryland manufacturing facility. The Perforated Starter shingle can be used with TAMKO’s full line of asphalt shingles including the Heritage® series laminated asphalt shingles and Elite Glass-Seal® 3-Tab shingles.
