Logistics of header wrap installation:
The old way: problems
  • Header wrap is compromised when Jackrafters are nailed onto the rims
  • It is left there hanging in the breeze and becomes damaged
  • Who details it so the foam will create an air-seal?
  • You have to remove some to get at the underside of the sub-floor
The new way: solutions
  • Header wrap is wrapped around sub-floor only
  • This seals the leakage area between the sub-floor and bottom wall plate
  • This doesn’t interfere with fastening rafters
  • Not multiples step process, This system works!
