Question about Carlisle Ice and Water Dam
 
Anyone ever use this stuff?

There's a guy who has a roll and a half he wants to get rid of for $50, and I was thinking of using it for the rake edges of the roof. I already have GAF Weather Stopper for the eaves. Since the rake edge is a "nice, but not necessary" situation, I thought I could save a few $$$ using this instead of buying a new roll or two of GAF's.

Any thoughts?

Looks like a similiar product. How many sq feet in a roll and a half?

I see two different length's on the spec sheet....it could be a 33' roll or a 66' roll. I have a question into the guy. If the whole roll is a 1 sq roll, and he has part of a second...in other words less than two square, then it would be cheaper to buy the GAF at Home Depot ($49 for a 2 square roll)

The roll the Jericho,NY Home Depot sells is 1 1/2 of a square for about $50.00. I can pick up the 2 square version at a local lumber yard for the same price. The details of the transaction will dictate the value of the deal.

Question on Ice and Water
 
Looking for opinions on using ice and water around the bottom perimeter of walls under vinylsiding on a slab ranch without gutters. Thanks.

Interesting application, but if I was you I'd start a new thread in a more appropriate forum, like the building and construction section. More people will see it.

:thumbsup:

THE CARLISLE IS SIMILAR TO GRACE i BELIEVE,the ice +water is fine at the bottom of the siding but cover it w/tyvek so as to prevent oilcanning/staining from the petroleum product-you shouldn`t put felt/ice shield under vinyl w/out a protective barrier:wink:
