Senior estimator Josh Turner explains why his company switched to VaproShield’s WrapShield SA Self-Adhered from the specified fluid-applied air barrier.
Re-writing the WRB/Air Barrier Rules
- Major reason for the change was that the temperature was going to be too cold [to install] the fluid-applied membrane, WrapShield SA Self-Adhered could be installed in below freezing temps.
- Easier phased floor-by-floor installation, no mobilizations for additional equipment were required.
- With WrapShield SA Self-Adhered there was zero overspray onto windows, structures or people below, cost and trouble to mask of floors below would have been cost prohibitive
