Welcome to our new Asphalt Life video series, “Hammer Time With Paul,” hosted by our own Paul Casseri, product manager for Atlas Roofing.

Throughout the series, we’ll provide install tricks, pro tips, technical updates and industry news for professional roofing contractors.

In this first installment, Paul discusses starter shingle installation, which covers two related mistakes: a lack of starter shingles and improper alignment of starter shingles at the rake and eave. Not paying attention to both of these crucial details can cause major problems for homeowners down the road, such as wind and water damage.

Watch the video to see Paul demonstrate the right (and wrong) way to install starter shingles on an asphalt roof.

Stay tuned for our next episode!
