INSTALLATION

Step 1: Start 2–3 feet from a corner. Wrap

around corner and continue nailing or stapling

as you move around the house. Use fasteners

that are long enough to penetrate into the stud

or nail base material.

Step 2: Use enough fasteners to hold the wrap

firmly in place by fastening it every 12"–18"

along the vertical studs using large-headed or

plastic cap nails or minimum 1" crown staples.

You may install it over wood-based, foaminsulative,

or fiberboard sheathing, and exterior

gypsum board.

Masonry Construction (CMU): Masonry

Tap-Con Fasteners with 2" diameter plastic

cap fasteners should be used at a 12"–18"

vertical spacing and 24" horizontally spaced.

A recommended adhesive may be used

temporarily to attach the weather barrier at

24" on center vertical strips; coordination on

the job site is recommended.

Note: A field inspection by a manufacturer

representative is recommended on all

commercial projects.

Step 3: Make an inverted “Y” cut in the wrap

at window rough opening. Make diagonal cuts

at top corners of rough opening.

Step 4: Fold the three flaps through the

opening, fastening them inside with staples set

about every 6". Fold top flap back and fasten

temporarily.

Step 5: Install the bottom flashing (when

installing flashing) over the wrap.

NOTE: Barricade Building Products

recommends the use of a flashing material,

such as Polyken® or Barricade® premium butyl

rubber flashing tape, that meets or exceeds

Federal Specification UU-B-790a, Grade A and

is a minimum 4" in width.

Step 6: Install window. Flashing details around

window:

A. Install side flashing over side window

flanges.

B. Install head flashing over the top window

flange and extend it out 3" to 4" over the

side flashings.

C. Bottom window flange should be over

flashing, installed in Step 5.

D. Remove temporary fasteners from top flap

of housewrap, and apply over installed

head flashing.

NOTE: Windows must be installed in

accordance with each manufacturer’s

recommended guidelines and installation

procedures.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Basic Use: WeatherTrek Housewrap is a

micro-perforated polyethylene membrane that

is installed beneath exterior siding to reduce air

infiltration and act as a weather resistive barrier.

WeatherTrek Housewrap is designed to provide

a secondary line of defense against bulk water

penetration and is not intended for use as a

primary water barrier. Used in residential and

commercial construction, installing housewrap

on an entire home or structure is generally the

most common industry practice.

Precautions and Limitations: Refer to

individual code reports for the various findings

and limitations applicable to the specific code

areas of influence.
