Improper use of Building wrap, wrong nailing procedure,Corners reversed,nailed thru foam siding with no backer,used poorest quality Grip rite building wrap not rated for energy barrier,,,picture one has corner inside out and corner wasnt wrapped,picture 2 they didnt even fully make it to the corner and picture 3 is nailing heads tight on siding,supposed to ne 2/32 'standing proud' loose nailing to prevent warping On Grip rite: From website::Grip-Rite is a 'weather resistive barrier' while Tyvek is listed as a 'weather resistive barrier' and an 'air barrier'. Grip-Rite: http://www.icc-es.org/reports/pdf_files/ICC-ES/ESR-2248.pdf Tyvek: http://www.icc-es.org/reports/pdf_files/ICC-ES/ESR-2375.pdf This is a significant performance difference. While both can be approved for use as weather resistive barriers under siding for building code purposes, only Tyvek can be approved for use as an air barrier for energy code compliance. What this means is that unlike Tyvek, Grip-Rite does little or nothing to prevent air infiltration and exfiltration in the structure. Up to 40% of a building's wasted energy is the result of air infiltration/exfiltration. One will therefore have to use expensive alternate methods to seal the thermal envelope of any building to prevent energy loss and to pass energy code inspection if Grip-Rite is used. Such methods include caulking every joint in every framed wall cavity where sheathing and studs meet. This can be a great waste of construction time and money. While I am no particular fan of Tyvek (or housewraps in general for that matter), if Tyvek and Grip-Rite are the only 2 options available, Tyvek would be my only choice every time. So be careful when you are being told that Grip-Rite and Tyvek are comparable products. They are not and do not perform the same way...with Tyvek having the vastly superior advantage" ............................................................................................................. Picture 4 is how sectioned rows ARE SUPPOSED to be done (note you don't nail into overlap) which Just exteriors seems to not know Picture 5...how nails are set correctly Picture 6...how its correctly done We could also say on the long ends of home and gables house wrap is to extend 1/2 inch beyond plywood substrate..it was not If you nail thru 5/8th foam..and loose nail shouldnt you be using ring shank nails so they dont pull out thru the years??Nope..they don't do that either. Might as well add that the over lap of building wrap is 30 cm...not 6 inches....which they dont follow All you have to do is look up how to correctly install it.His workers from Nicaragua were nice guys..but they are untrained and dont follow mfgrs requirements. The site of installation was at Round Hill,fishkill,on or about November 2, 2020..on Spruce Court... theres alot of good science on building trades...and you have to know why a thing is done and what the outcome will be in the future

User's recommendation: stay away.

Buckled siding At round hill Condos

All I know is you can watch it warp in the sun and bulge.....had it been nailed right it would slide not bulge.....this is on Valley road...

User's recommendation: you can watch a YouTube on how its put on correctly.

yes...the building wrap used Grip rite is not Energy rated...Tyvec and Barricade are. At least one of his corners are inside out on Spruce court.

The nailing was not "standing proud" 2/32 spacing...so it cant flex like it should. The corners were not wrapped 30cm around,and the rows where two pieces meet arte supposed to be clipped back and you dont nail thru both rows...to allow for movement.Were i nailing thru foam Id use ring shank nals...smooth one wiggle out.
