Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BuilderGuy Save your receipt
I you decide to buy this product, be sure you have time to return in and buy something else before the job needs to be finished, and save your receipt because you may end up returning your Protecto Wrap.
In fact, save your time by buying a different product to begin with. We ran out of 3M brand 8067 flashing tape midway through a job and I picked some of this stuff up so we could finish. It didn't have enough adhesion to hold itself up do any surface at all. Once I peeled the protective liner off, I touched the "sticky" side and thought I was supposed to peel something off of the other side as well. I was shaking my head wondering what was going on until I read some of the other reviews here. Honestly, felt paper would stick about as well as the roll of Protecto wrap that I bought.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DecoratorGirl Great product, but definitely use primer spray!
Today was my second time to use this product. The first time, it was only okay, but I found that it didn't stick to the OSB in some areas. So after reading some reviews, I tried again, but this time I primed the OSB with 3M Super 77 spray adhesive first (found in the paint department), and WOW!!! What a difference!! I couldn't believe how strong the adhesive felt this time. Just don't mess up when putting the tape on, because if you need to pull it off to readjust, you'll have a heck of a time getting it off!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TURBODIESEL Used on LOW spots of spray foam roof and SURFACE HAS TO BE CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN!!!
i used it in the LOW spots on the flat, sprayed on foam roof that has to be coated every spring with the WHITE ROOF ROLLED ON ROOF COATING. but that stuff, in the low spots, bubbled up/festers probably as there is water in the foam, from being a low spot, and the water coming out of the foam when it is HOT HOT HOT in the desert summers.
I applied this stuff in the CLEAN LOW spots on the flat roof and it seems to do ok? I coated it with the white elastomer roof coating when I pressure wash and coat the roof every summer to try to keep the roof/room underneath from being TOO HOT. I believe it reads that it is good for 90 days? but it has been abt a yr and the stuff still sticks to the roof, after being coated with the white elastomer coating.
it is a patch job, waiting for it too cool off to put glued rubber roofing on that part of the roof, but in the short run, I think it works ok for what I used it for. its glue, asphalt and outer coating. I thought the glue was fine, but the SURFACE HAS TO BE CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN as the glue wont stick to... dirt, mud, dust, factory coatings that some things have. wipe the surface off with unleaded gas and a rag and let it evaporate, or alcohol if u want the stuff to stick right the first time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MES 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Matt 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.

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 !

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.

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.
