Roof vents / Eternabond

I'm finishing up on a roof repair, I am using Eternabond on seams and end cap, but am questioning the roof vent, I put three layers of Butyl tape and pulled it down to make a good seal, but there is only about 5/8 inch behind screws on flange for Eternabond to seal. Would think at least 2 inches from any probable water leak would be a good practice ( or more the better) would any of you perfer dicor lap sealant for this job other than Eternabond? Just questioning for advice or input. ...

Just do both! Start with the Dicor and later cover with the Eternabond. That's what I did for my skylight.

How well does the Eternabond contour to highs and lows of the dicor, does it seal well? I can see if the Eternabond laps over to a flat surface on each side. Not talking myself out of using it but trying to get insight from others that have used it to get the very best out of the Eternabond.

I'm sure it sticks better to a flat surface, but applying it over the dicor is normally what your doing when you seal the rest of the seams.

The other option is to put down the Eternabond, then seal the edges with Dicor. I just put down a small amount of Dicor on the screw heads and along the edges of the skylight, before the Eternadond. Bad weather was on the way and the Eternabond hadn't arrived yet..

Eternabond Tape

How difficult is it to remove Eternabond tape if after it's been down for a while, you want to redo the sealing of a joint?

One technique I read about was using a heat gun to soften the glue. Does that work?

It's designed to not come off. I would think it will be extremely difficult and tedious to try to get it off. It will bond to itself so you can put new tape right the old tape or overlap it when new.
