Carbon black is added to both parts as a UV stabilizer and colorant.

For use on shingle roofs 3/12 pitch and steeper.

Designed to seal around round pipes from 1 inch diameter to 5 3/8 inches diameter.

Roof deck is to be prepped with ice and water shield, 6 inches or more beyond the footprint of the flashing if decking allows (as other flashings or per local code).

Fastener locations are marked on the product or positioned per local code.

The lower piece (with the patent number) is to be installed first after shingles are installed to the penetration the flashing is being installed around.

The upper part of the flashing is installed second, this allows positive water flow.

Installed footprint 16 ¼ inches high by 12 inches wide.

Shingles installed on the flashing are to be seal assisted as shown on product or per local code.

Shingles are to be trimmed in a fashion to allow water to flow on the flashing, do not butt the shingle against the conical riser.

Underlying shingles that meet the water channel should be nicked (just like a valley) to prevent water from catching the edge and running horizontally. See shingle manufacturer valley instructions.

Sealants used on the flashing are to be compatible with a vulcanized thermoplastic elastomer (collar/gasket) and a thermoplastic co-polymer (rigid base). A list of approved sealants for use with the flashing are on the FAQ page at www.Garrdal.com www.Garrdal.com/faq.

If a manufacturing defect is found on a Garrdal 2 part retrofit pipe flashing, return it to place of purchase for replacement.
