Agreed.. After getting mine ready for year 2, if I had to do it over again I would do all edging with foil tape. I love that stuff. I use the 2.83" extreme weather variety made by Nashua.jkisha wrote:That's the right stuff.Wicky wrote:jkisha, this doesn't say anything about being foil backed... that's what I've been searching for. Does that matter? Sorry if I'm being a dumb ass, just don't want to buy the wrong thing and cook my wife.
Thanks for the heads up on duct tape... same for gorilla tape?
The stuff without foil doesn't have the writing on it and it looks like styrofoam.
And don't forget to wash it with mild soap to remove the milling oil before you start taping.
We get 6" bidirectional filament tape for assembly and for making the preasembly hinges for the roof sections and wall sections and for the weather stripping of the door and door hinge. We also buy 2" bidirectional filament tape for other taping-- taping on the windows, and taping the floor to the walls. We use foil tape for pre-taping the edges and for repairing any dings in the foil of the panels.
For anyone debating between the H12 and H15, the extra height is SO worth it.. Can't wait to be back!
