not yet.

But thanks, looks interesting..

Is it expensive ? If it works good , it's expensive.
Expensive is a relative term....

Its a lot more than the tape. I would never use it when the tape would be good enough. I am thinking for dissimilar materials and concrete pans. I need to contact Huber to get some more info.

We have used about a case. You can see the photos here https://plus.google.com/photos/1016...5898389286253650594&oid=101664748680790542215



We found that we preferred using tape in the sill but it was nice to use around penetrations on the wall.

It was tough to squeeze out too. I would say that I prefer using tape because it is easy and just one product to do everything I need. I could see buying a case and then using a tube per house or something like that.

We love using Zip Wall though. On this https://plus.google.com/photos/101664748680790542215/albums/5925110912169444033?banner=pwa we had the blower door done just before final cleaning and we had very good numbers. I haven't converted them completely but it looks we be had under 4ach @50 and when I get the exact volume figured out, I think it'll be closer to 3.

Not bad for just using Zip Wall and meeting WA state energy code, especially on a house this size (3300 sq ft)

I have seen almost all of your photos on picasa/google plus (not in a creepy way)

Its where I learned about the Zip Flash.

We do a lot of reno with concrete or block sills or subfloors and being able to make a pan out of that instead of tape, metal, and caulk would be a huge labor saver.

the 3-3/4 is $ 42

the 6' = $ 56

I bought case quantity when I purchase the gun/ applicator a while ago
so the price was a lot cheaper. It's not used here that much by others.

I like it except for the dripping from the zip-roof. I've also notices that the zip-roof is way to slippery when wet or damp,

It's amazing how different prices can be. I don't pay anywhere near that.

I think I pay $30 a roll for the 3 3/4 tape. That's non bulk pricing. You're paying way too much for the tape.

Not sure how far away E Longmeadow is from you, but Kelly Fradet has some good prices on zip:
