In nys if you are replaceing in kind, you do not have to follow the new rules. But if are doing a total replacement of a different roofing system, the rules applie. The way around the system is to include the installation manuals, which is basically jj slate roof Bible or evergreens book, in your permit app. It works every time!!

Better yet, do like they did 100 years ago and don't use any ice/water shield. Or any other damn sticky stuff. Completely unnecessary, and future repair men will curse you less. Increase your headlap to 5" at the eaves instead.

We always use Grace I & w on our shingle roofs. It would be best to cover it with a #15 or #30 felt before you put the slate on. It will stick and that makes it a bitch when trying to repair it.

Had a talk with the inspector today and he told me that I have to use IWS 3ft around whole perimeter of my roof and on the valleys. It seems that not all of these products are created equal, in yalls opinion what would be the best product to use? Maybe I should ask what would be the worst product to use, because that may make repairs easier (less sticky?) Should I just go for the cheapest? Should I add a layer of felt or something else over it to prevent sticking?
