Question

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?

Question about Carlisle Ice and Water Dam


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.

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.

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
