This will help lower your energy bills, prevent peeling of paint and wallpapers and limit harmful effects on your health. Next, Deck Armor is applied to add a layer of protection to the roof deck, to protect it from wind-driven rains or other water that can infiltrate under the shingles, it will also help the shingles lay flatter and thus reduce blow off. The pre-cut starter strip shingles are added to speed up installation time while also helping to prevent shingle blow-offs because of their factory-applied adhesive strips.

Finally, the ridge cap shingle can be affixed to the hips and ridges of the roof for added beauty and guards against leaks.
