I’ve used various brands of this product and all have been about the same… it adheres well and the backing can be difficult to remove. This is the 20Mil thick product and I have used it for doors, windows and some flashing where the siding meets the walls. There is a thicker variety with a foil face… 40Mil… that is great for roofing projects like vent pipe flashing, valleys and anywhere a roof meets a vertical wall. The thicker product is also good for stopping ice dam issues on overhangs though it can get pretty expensive… I found a good deal for some large rolls on an auction site. I have read the directions and installed this stuff accordingly but was disappointed in the results. I recently added an enclosed porch; wrapped it with house wrap; cut out for the windows and folded the wrap in; caulked; installed the windows and then applied the flashing tape so it was adhering to the vinyl window nail edge and the house wrap. I had drafts and water leaks...
Does not stick to house wrap! Even when it is 80+ outside, it sticks initially but will peel off within a couple of days to a week. Good thing I had a delay in stucco because this would cost me $1k's in call back for leaky windows. I used to use this all the time and it does stick good to OSB, or so I thought it did.
