Skylight Repair

I have read where one member posted that eternabond tape would not stick to the back of the eternabond tape. If this is true, then how will I do the corners of my skylight where I need to overlap? I have some tape coming and I will experiment with a small piece when it comes in. I have a EPDM roof.

Eternabond has more than one type of tape. The white slick backing that I used will certainly allow more tape to stick to it.

Same here... I earlier this year replaced our skylight, and used the white Eternabond. So far,,, we've been through blowing dust storms with 50+ mph gusts, driving rain, and an ice storm. (all in one trip,,, ) But the tape has held up perfectly !! Just make sure the surfaces are clean first...

search for the thread where a poster asked how to get the tape off and all of the glue. Someone replied with a link to the eternabond websight where they discussed getting the tape off. The people at eternabond told how to get it off but one of the things that i think are applicable to your question is that the experts say not to take it off if you do not have to. They claim the tape will adhere to the old tape and actually make a better bond.

Tape has been put around the skylight and that job is completed. While I was on the roof I found about a 2 foot soft place where it had leaked before but had been repaired. Never leaked on the inside, Wonder how hard that will be to replace?
