Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ClimbHi Great product
Having used this product in the past, and struggled with applying it properly, I really like the new, improved version. It's a bit stiffer and less sticky so it's easier to apply smoothly without it sticking everywhere it shouldn't, but sticky enough that it stays put once it's pressed down. Also, the paper backing is WAY easier to peel off just by bending the product. It also has a textured surface so it's not like walking on a hockey rink when it's damp. My HD doesn't stock it, but it's worth ordering online.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lefty Great Product!!! Wouldn't use ANY other Brand!!
I've been a GC for 30 years, and when it comes to roofs, I Only use Grace Products! Especially Ice N Water Shield.
Most roofers only use it on the lower ends of roofs near gutters for ice damming n melt backup. I use Grace around the entire perimeter of the roof, It's an extra safeguard for side blowing rain. It is a bit more costly to do that, but it can save you in the long run!!!
On less than a 5 on 12 pitch, I use Grace on the entire roof! Some guys say I'm crazy, but that roof wont leak until I'm long gone!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JustGeorge Grace Ice & Water Shield
The product is difficult to rate until it has been on the roof for several years. My complaint was that the box says that a "rip-cord" is incorporated within the paper backing. Once you install this stuff by yourself you can understand the value that the rip-cord would provide. But this box did not have the rip-cord as stated. The other complaint is that one edge of the product has a 1/2 inch sticky strip. I can only assume that this is for applications where the user is overlapping from one sheet to another? In hot and windy weather this is difficult to install with these 2 issues. Overall the product makes sense, but it is expensive and difficult to use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by roger excellent durability
An excellent product to use for waterproofing almost anything.As long as the product and the surface to which it is applied is clean,dry and warm i feel that it will last for many years.The only drawback is you must be extremely careful not to let the sticky surface get wrinkled and fold.It is practically impossible to pull it apart.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ScrewUp It's good stuff, but ...........
I've done a lot of roofing, and the word on the street in the roofing industry is that this is the best self-sealing product. That may be true, but it comes at a price (financial AND practical). This is the world's stickiest stuff when the backing is removed. You MUST have 2 people in order to install it neatly. Also the vaunted "rip-cord" feature instructions begin with the words "find the rip cord" good luck finding it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by luby3 Difficult for one person to apply
Product is very handling sensitive during installation. Best to install in short lengths to avoid alignment problems. Must be applied by at least 2 workers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kenrmer The best underlayment
Grace is the best underlayment available. Some contractors don't like using it due to the extra care needed in handling the product. Its super sticky and unforgiving when trying to reposition, so work slowly. It is definitely the best ice/water shield you can buy. HD had the best price compared to the local roofing suppliers too.
