Hi All - I have been working with a couple of roofers to get estimates for my roof. The one I like did not mention starter strips on the eves and rakes. When i asked them, they said that its a marketing gimmick and that they use the regular shingles to cut them out and they look the same as starter strips.
Also, do you need ice and water shield and drip edge along the rakes. One roofer is suggesting that they do this on the eves and rakes, the other says that doing it on the rakes is overkill and unecessary and says that adding more than needed can make it a pain to remove/replace later on.
Is this true? Please provide your opinions…this is confusing.
