I decided to run ice and water all along the eves as well. There is a lot of damage where the gutters were. I'm guessing the gutters got backed up and ruined some fascia and sheathing. I bought certainteed brand "sand." It is the granulated version. Is this the one you use? The instructions say to install it over the drip edge, so I don't know if it will do anything to protect against the gutters. What are your thoughts?

There instructions are wrong. you overhang the facia then apply a 3/4"x 3/4" red cedar ground as a termination. then apply the drip edge over that. This is a Ice dam leak prevention detail and protects the vunerable joint at the top of the facia and bottom of the roof sheathing. It is optional to also strip in the flange of the drip edge with a 6" strip of I&W but not essential. Certainteed still has the old generic ARMA spec detail that is out dated. Common sence and never underestimate the ingenuity of a rain drop.
