    many people do learn by experience and hard knocks, but i don't think those in the crowd paid that close of attention.

    Wow. First thought in my head was "what happens when they reroof?"

    No, maybe my *first* thought was "glad I'm not sticking that down"! I'd have had ten air bubbles in the middle of that, can't stick down a long strip of anything without making a first-rate mess of it! :)

    what happens when anything lands on the strip? bird poop, Frisbees, acid rain, who is going to go up and keep the laminates clean? how efficient will it be on an already-tarred, hot roof? flat roofs pool water

    We have never been fans of those laminates. Besides costing 2-3x as much up front, the installation can cost more than a new roof. And if the satellite guy drills holes into for the antenna...
