Parts of a shingle roof

Starter Shingle – is the shingle at the ‘bottom edge’ of the roof with the exposure portion trimmed off, leaving just the self-seal strip and top lap. They are fastened along the eaves edges to seal down the first course of shingles and provide coverage material beneath the tab cutouts just like the top lap of each successive course.
