excellent product

My contractor has been very impressed with the flat wrap. He has a lot of experience to be able to compare. I'm very pleased with it and having been his helper to install it, I've had a chance to work very close with the Flat wrap and I know I choose the best products for my Home by using Benjamin Obdyke products.

Great look and quality

I was looking for a house wrap for a shed that was matte black. I'm using old fencing to side the shed and want to leave a small gap between boards but I don't want to see name brands (blue on white) showing through. This product certainly fit the bill. In hindsight, I probably could have saved a bunch of money and just used felt roofing paper. But, this is much lighter, easy to hang, and seems quite durable. If it didn't cost so much, I'd give it 5 stars. I found some black flashing tape online from a different source that will help with the windows and door.

Best house wrap I have ever used!

I am using this wrap over Zip Wall sheathing as a secondary barrier for manufactured stone. This stuff lays flat during installation, unlike any other wrap I have used in 26 years of residential and commercial building
