Common installation errors
1. Incomplete installation of WALL WRAP
There is no WALL WRAP installed on the gable, only a WALL WRAP interface is left on the bottom part of the gable. Although this method will not affect the house's windproof performance, water will enter the rear of the WALL WRAP from the seam.
2.The installer will install the WALL WRAP on the sheath wall before installing the board.This installation method will result in WALL WRAP at the band joist. So we have to insert a WALL WRAP strip 6-12 inches wide at the bottom of the WALL WRAP.
3. External corner is often missed
4. Mistakes in lap connection.It is important to remember that the wrong lap can seriously affect the service life of the WALL WRAP. Even if the flashing tape has been used, the impact cannot be avoided.
