Talkin’ Housewrap With Matt Risinger (VIDEO)
Two of our favorites, Kyle Stumpenhorst from RR Buildings and Matt Risinger of “The Build Show”, met up at a trade show and talked a little house wrap. Watch the video above to hear all of their thoughts.
RR Buildings videos feature Kyle Stumpenhorst of Franklin Grove, Illinois. Kyle went to college for computer science but, after working in the field for a couple years after college, felt the desire to work with his hands. After remodeling his own home, he started a remodeling company that soon grew to include every facet of residential construction. After Kyle built his first post frame in 2012, he was hooked and never looked back! He now specializes in custom post frame structures for all sectors of the market. Kyle has been married to his high school sweetheart, Lindsy, since 2006 and has two kids that mean the world to him!
House Wrap Tip: Install House Wrap with Capped Fasteners
The good old days of using a hammer tacker to install house wrap are gone forever. Today, most house wrap manufacturers require their product to be installed with cap nails or cap staples. This change definitely slows down the process, but on the upside, capped fasteners hold house wrap to the wall up to 25 times better than staples.
Using capped fasteners will ensure a good night’s sleep on those windy nights knowing the house wrap you installed last week is not blowing all over the neighborhood.
