how many of you guys see tuck tape used in your area as a window flashing tape?
i would say 95% of the homes done in this area have the building paper installed then the paper is cut out for the window.
windows are installed and the red tuck tape is tapped on all four sides on the window and thats the finished product.

my power poles?
they are doing awesome but they are in storage.
i have 4 sets and want to buy two more but i prob wont be using them till next summer.
they are awesome for custom jobs and odd places but if you want mega production i go for bigger toys

my season has been nuts and next year will be just as crazy.
i am mostly working for one contractor so our buildings dont change that much, the colors change and the size changes but thats it.
we either do a 18 suite or a 24 suite.
the pics i got here is most of the work we did this last year.
minus a few cabins
two 10 suite apartments
a 9plex
and a few custom homes

i have about 12 million pics but the building layout is the same so i wont bore you with the same thing over and over.
the joy of your blueprint never changing is mega speed after one or two under your belt

I just started using the zip system flashing tape for the head and side of windows and doors and for the pans. I like it so far

The tyvek flex wrap is a awesome product. But the price is outrageous

i have a dealer who is trying to push the product so he gives me a good price.
sometimes throws me a few rolls for free also.

if your only using the flex wrap for the corners only then a roll will last much longer

True. I wish the tape was little more flexible so it could be done in a single pie e like flex wrap. Doing the pan in 3 separate pieces ( 2 corner "bowties" and a continues piece ) kills time that shouldn't be spent.
