Due to a litttle less money in the budget, looks like I will be doing the roofing i had planned to pay out. Not a problem, done a few roofs over the years, but not in quite some time.
I really like the ice shield and membranes on the market these days for roofs etc...I'm excited about using the Grace product.
I have a few questions I would like to be familiarized with for a proper use of these products.
1) areas to be ice shielded: does the ice shields run along the eaves and up the rakes? or just along the eaves? Is 3' wide the proper size shield?
2) does the ridge get the ice shield over it also? 3' wide?
3) Do the valleys also recieve the membrane? If so, how do i apply this, as the framer framed over the (1) layer of existing shingles to tie into the roof for the "reverse gable" (I think that is the right term). So the new framing is sheathing' and then I have the existing shingles that i have to tie into (valley). So as far as the valley's I'm unsure if or how a membrane is installed. I would imagine this would be a smaller width membrane if used, correct?
4) Also, just a couple more questions on drip edge. Is the drip edge that is used for the eaves( the kind that protrudes out to extend a bit over the gutter to help with water runoff) also used up the rakes? or is the type that looks more like an "end cap" used up the rake?
Lot of questions but would appreciate anyone chiming in on any of the four, or all four if you have the answers. thanks so much. Need to get on this soon, while weather is still good. But don't want to move ahead until I understand correctly.
