Customer reviews for Window and Door Sealing/flashing Tape

Window and Door Sealing/flashing Tape

A tough-faced superior self adhering, air/vapor barrier and waterproofing membrane for vertical and horizontal above grade substrates; BT25XL seals window perimeters to building substrates to create an impenetrable barrier. This 25-mil polyethylene-backed aggressive rubberized adhesive membrane can be applied to vinyl, plywood, OSB, concrete, metal, aluminum, polyethylene, building wrap products, block and masonry surfaces to form an air/vapor moisture barrier system. BT25XL is the only window sealing tape that can be installed and left exposed for 120 days without UV degradation. Since BT25XL is a peel and stick self-adhering membrane, you simply center the tape over the area to be sealed and firmly roll and press into place. BT25XL also seals itself around nails, screws and staples. Not only will BT25XL waterproof around doors and windows, it stops air leakage, thus reducing heating and cooling costs.

Although it is not specified it works great for covering cracks in a concrete slab before tile installation I have been using it for that purpose for 15 years never once has my tile cracked due to the house settling outstanding product. Not to mention much more cost effective to home owners who simply can't afford the underlayment recommended by the pricy manufacturers "sshhh they don't want you to know its the same exact thing"
Pros: Easy to Use, Performs Well, Easy to Install, Easy to Work With, Quiet, Good Size & Weight, Straight, Seals Well, Great Value, High Quality, Economical, Reliable, Light Weight
Cons: no cons works great, just cut peel and stick

the best stuff on the market, recommended for use on all doors and windows. It will make a difference on your house.don't install or have a window installed without it.
If the price was doubled I would still buy it.

This window and door tape is a snap to apply and it provides an instant moisture barrier, caulking and flashing in one product. Beats all those products for most uses, but may still requir a tiny dab of caulking in inside corners or around wall penetrations like pipes or wires or such. Great stuff and a time saver too.
Pros: Easy to Use, Performs Well, Easy to Install, Easy to Work With, Good Size & Weight, Seals Well, Great Value, Lots of Features, High Quality, Economical, Reliable
Cons: could use a two inch size

The two rolls I bought from HD must have been old stock, they did not stick at all to OSB and did not stick to the aluminum frame around the window. The OSB was installed correctly, rough side out and the flashing tape was rolled down multiple times. The roll also had multiple diagonal serrations.
The reason why I rated this as high as I did is because the customer service is excellent and they stand behind their product, Mike Stout is an honest and helpful representative of the company.
That said, until I receive replacement rolls (after showing proof of purchase and pictures of the failing tape, which is to be expected) I will not know how well it works. I can say that the silver faced product made by cofair sticks to EVERYTHING and hasn't budged after two weeks. I will update this review after I've applied the new rolls (I will be using 3m adhesive this time, just for the extra stick-ability). But, I will leave one pretty protected window unsprayed to see how the tape stands on its own.
Pros: Easy to Install, Easy to Work With, Light Weight
Cons: Inconsistent
