Starter shingles are a very important aspect of any shingle roof installation. Many Denver roofing contractors do not use starter shingle which leaves
you with a sub-par roof. The reason starter shingles are important is that they properly seal your roof at the eaves and rakes. The starter
strip has an asphalt sealing strip that will bond and seal down the first course of shingle along all your eaves or gutter lines and also up your
rakes "Basically the entire perimeter of your roof". It's just as important to use starter strips up the rakes to eliminate the chance of wind
uplift and damage to your shingle roof. Properly installed felt paper and starter strips is the first step to a professionally installed
shingle roof. Ask your Denver Roofing Contractor if they use starter strips. You can trust our company The Denver Roofing Company to do
all the right things when it comes to your roof.

Roof flashings are some of the most important elements of any roof. The weather in Denver can be violent at times and can damage are roofs very easily. This is where roof flashings come into play. Roof flashing help protect our roofs in different ways especially around entry or exit points and where roof lines meet walls. Another great example of roof flashings would be around chimneys. One of the common flashings will discuss here is called "drip edge" drip edge goes around the perimeter of your house and typically comes in colors to match the shingle or the color of your fascia. Drip edge is mostly used to create clean roofing lines and give a nice finished appearance to your new roof. Drip edge also helps to direct water into your gutters or off your roof, it helps stop water from backing up under your shingles. Drip edge also helps secure your underlayment and wind uplift around the perimeter of the roof as well. Not all Denver roofing contractors use drip edge but we recommend it. In fact we will typically upgrade you to a 2"x4" drip edge which has the added benefit of reaching secure decking when installed. If you have any questions, please give us a call here at The Denver Roofing Company.
