Preventing stuck shingles to Ice and Water shield- Felt over?
Is there a best practice for installing asphalt shingle roofs where Ice and Water shield is used?
I have heard the shingles can stick to the I&W (using Grace) making a mess at replacement– some folks seem to even think the decking will need to be replaced when the shingles are if I&W is used.
The roof structure and sheathing should last far longer than the service life of the shingles, so this seems crazy. Does anyone run felt over the I&W to provide a break, or am I crazy to be worrying about this? WOuld felt even help.
