Accessories that are compatible
A house wrap installation can easily fail when there is not enough attention paid to the details. Incorrect taping and flashing are the most common problem areas.
When there is a problem it is more often caused by an installation issue then a failure of the material. Installation problems are compounded when two different types of products need to work together.
In the case of house wrap, a frequent problem area is where the house wrap and openings, such as windows and doors, have to work together. Sometimes, there are issues because the wrong materials are used. But if you ask a window or door company, they will tell you that their biggest problem is flashing that has been incorrectly installed.
Combining incompatible flashing tapes and caulks can have catastrophic results. As soon as the oozing and dripping start, both the tape and the caulk fail, resulting in air and water infiltration around doors and windows.
Barricade materials and adhesives have been tested to make sure they perform well together.
Barricade offers a full line of high-performance tapes and flashing that are designed to work with their house wrap and sheathing products.
