Room Over Garage: Siding

A better mouse trap: EASY header wrap installation for room over garage.

Logistics of header wrap installation:
The standard way: it’s complicated
  • Header wrap is compromised when Jack-rafters are nailed onto the rims
  • After framing, it is left there hanging and becomes damaged
  • Needs to be carefully detailed so the spray-in-place foam will create the air-seal
  • You have to cut away some of the wrap to get at the underside of the joists
The better way: it’s easy
  • 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
  • A simplified process. This system works!
