Temporary fix?
I have a leak in my roof. I was told by a contractor i could use ice shield to get me through the winter. Right now money is tight, but in the spring i will have the money to do the repair right. Would using Ice Shield get me through the winter?

Depends on the repair but ice and water is like the duct tape of the roof industry. 1001 uses...and counting.

It should work.

Depends on the type of roof and how he plans on using it.
More info sure would help.

Just like Windows and Joe said.,.Depends.

If your contractor recommends going over the shingles with Ice and water in the problem area I would look for another contractor.

Removing the shingles in the problem area then install the Ice and water and replacing the shingles should get you by until your reroof in the spring.Very rarely does a topical quick fix last very long especially in the winter months.
