Answer: 
Dear FishingDog: Not effectively. The surface is also typically uneven; not suitable as a final painted finish. Flashing like this is typically covered by trim, siding or another surface.
I hope this is helpful.

Dear Moonin: Yes, Protecto Wrap is a good solution to flash and seal windows and doors in new construction and remodels. It is very flexible and can be easily wrapped around corners. Six tips:
(1) Start by sealing and filling any gaps and holes around the window frame, to block paths for water infiltration -- before you apply the Protecto Wrap. We use DAP 230, also sold by Home Depot. A photo is attached of one of our recent projects. This was a deep remodel with old board style sheathing, and we filled all of the gaps around the window framing with DAP 230 before we applied the Protecto Wrap.
(2) After you apply Protecto Wrap, burnish the entire surface to press the adhesive layer into the wood, e.g. with the back side of a spoon. We found that the edges sometimes separate and curl away from the wood if only hand pressure is used. This is particularly true in colder temperatures.
(3) Before you insert the window, carefully clean the frame and 'fin' around the edges to eliminate any manufacturing residue. We found that frames and fins on one leading brand of windows were covered with a very thin coating of oil -- not enough to notice, but enough to prevent flashing from sticking to the surface!
(4) Always start flashing at the bottom of the window opening and work up, with a generous overlay for each layer. Depending on the direction you run the Protecto Wrap, you may need to make relief cuts in the corners where it wraps over the outside / inside surface.
(5) After the window is installed, carefully cover the fin and extend the Protecto Wrap 6" or so around all of the sides, again working from the bottom up. (As shown in the attached photo.)
(6) Finish by filling and sealing the perimeter and framing gaps on the inside, to block air leaks. Use Great Stuff foam from Home Depot, the 'Windows and Doors' version in the blue can, which has limited expansion and remains flexible.
I hope this is helpful.

Answer: 
Dear IMtools: Great question! As you noted, the photo shows 75 feet but the description says 50 feet. To confuse things further, the Protecto Wrap product spec sheet on the Home Depot page lists 100 feet !!
Other vendor sites show a similar variation - typically 50 and 75 feet. This is a standard vendor marketing technique, to reduce the cost (and quantity) for some versions -- but keep the same part Read More
Dear IMtools: Great question! As you noted, the photo shows 75 feet but the description says 50 feet. To confuse things further, the Protecto Wrap product spec sheet on the Home Depot page lists 100 feet !!
Other vendor sites show a similar variation - typically 50 and 75 feet. This is a standard vendor marketing technique, to reduce the cost (and quantity) for some versions -- but keep the same part number, so it appears to be the same product.
If the rolls you receive turn out to be 50 feet, you could file a complaint with HD Customer Service, and include a copy of the photo from the product page that shows 75 feet. Home Depot does a great job standing behind their products, in my experience.
A tip for installation: We used Protecto Wrap for a recent project, to flash new windows. After a week we discovered that the Protecto Wrap was peeling back -- not sticking to the window 'fin'. After some close examination, we found the the fins on the new window were covered with an invisibly thin coating, probably applied during the manufacturing process. It appeared to be an oil or silicone. So wipe down all of the surfaces you plan to flash with Protecto Wrap with a good solvent -- to make sure they are really clean.
Protecto Wrap is also a great solution to protect the tops of deck joists -- to prevent rot. We cover the tops of the joists on all of our projects with Protecto Wrap, before we installed the decking.
I hope this is helpful.

Dear Ben: Yes. For example, we use Protecto Wrap to cover the tops of deck joists before we install decking - to block water and rot. You must make sure the wood is clean and dry, of course -- without any surface film or dirt.

Dear Ben: Yes. For example, we use Protecto Wrap to cover the tops of deck joists before we install decking - to block water and rot. You must make sure the wood is clean and dry, of course -- without any surface film or dirt.
Your foundation issue sounds like an interesting challenge, however. If your wood sill plate gets wet every time it rains, it sounds like you may have a drainage / landscape problem. We encountered this with a house in Park City, and had to bring the level of the surrounding flower beds down to make sure they were well below the top of the foundation. No amount of flashing or sealant will solve this problem; you must reduce the level of the nearby soil. We also installed new a new drain system that ran to dry wells, to pull water away from the house.
I hope this is helpful.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by won't stick Wow the only self adhering flexible flashing that needs to be stapled on to stay put. This stuff only works if the outside temps stay above 75 even then it sticks somewhat. HD used to stock the grace vycor which is a much better product. If you can get any other brand take it over this useless stuff your project will go faster and seal better. March 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Flashing Tape I used this tape to help repair a roof leak on an eave where a valley empties onto the corner of a hip. I put the tape over a new drip edge to seal it with the plywood roof decking and also along the hip joint where the plywood sheets meet. The roofing felt was then installed over the top. It goes on easy and sticks well to clean, non dusty surfaces. The paper release layer removes cleanly from the adhesive, but be careful, the release paper is split and if it folds over, the other side of the release paper is not slick and will adhere permanently to the adhesive backing. This is the only reason I rated the product 4 instead of 5 stars. The thickness of this product is ideal. Thick enough to be strong, tear resistant, and wrinkle resistant but thin enough to be flexible and not stack up. I will definitely use this product again. April 28, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk My door installer ran out of his wrap so I went to Home Depot and picked up a roll of this sealing wrap. Upon opening it up, we found that it barely stuck to anything. He showed me what he was using and it was like fly paper. This wrap had about 10% of the sticking ability. He put it on and the following day half of it came off. I pulled off the rest easily and threw it all away. Maybe I had a bad roll but based upon my experience, duck tape would have worked better than this tape. What a bad experience ! Ugh ! May 5, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Buy the Adhesive Spray Sealing new windows and patio doors with Protecto Wrap. Please follow the instructions and use an adhesive spray when using this wrap. For each 50' roll of wrap I used a $10.00 can of 3M Super 77 spray adhesive. I also used a roller to press the contact hard onto the OSB. The combination worked great. I do wonder why HD didn't have the spray adhesive in the same part of the store as the wrap. September 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Preferred brand This takes some getting used to, but feel confident windows & door frames wrapped in this tape will never leak. Tried another, similar brand, but found that other tape impossible to peel off its backing, so came back for more Protecto Wrap! I wish Home Depot offered this is different widths, as it is awkward & time-consuming to cut strips to piece it across a wide opening. August 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great flashing solution for windows, doors and decks We were installing a bunch of new windows, a few doors and an upgraded deck -- and needed peel-and-stick flashing. Protecto-Wrap was the perfect solution: easy to install and tenaciously sticky, with plastic backing that makes it easy to add and overlap layers. Two tips: (1) Make sure your surfaces are clean. The trim edge on some of our new windows was coated with an invisible and thin layer of an oily substance -- probably a residue from manufacturing. We had to clean and re-install the flashing after it peeled up. (2) After you apply strips by hand, go over them with a small roller or the end of a hammer, to bond the adhesive tightly to the framing. We found that this significantly improved adhesion. This house is located on the shore. In addition to the typical applications around window and door openings, we used Protecto-Wrap to seal all of the seams around window boxes and other places where wind-driven rain could infiltrate. Protecto-Wrap is also a good solution to discourage rot with deck framing. We covered the tops of all of the deck joists, ladder blocking and stair stringers -- particularly places where end grain was exposed, e.g. on the cuts made for stair treads. I hope this is helpful!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk, did not stick after one day I applied this to plywood. After one day, it started peeling off. I wasted my money. June 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Protectowrap I used protectowrap when I installed my windows (new const.) I applied it to the plywood first set the window in place and wrapped the outside flange again. The house hasn't had siding on it for 3 months and all the elements, Snow, Flooding rains, and ice has not penetrated the seal in anyway. Great stuff, and easy to work with you actually get a couple of seconds to pull it off and reapply if you need to adjust. Also about half the Price of Grace. May 7, 2010
