Perforated Starter Strip

Starter strips keep bugs out and allows ventilation into the rainscreen cavity, while saving labour and material costs.

Description

Starter strips keep bugs out and allows ventilation into the rainscreen cavity, while saving labour and material costs. Our starter strips are based on a concept developed by siding installers to combine two important siding accessories—a lip edge for the starter course of siding (Vinyl, Cementitious siding, or wood) and perforations to create a bug screen for rainscreen cavities.

This innovative product not only serves a functional purpose, but it also saves the contractor labout costs, and material costs over the long term.

Note: Colour will vary according to availability, since this profile is hidden from view once installed. It is commonly white or off-white.
