The Small Planet Workshop is here to help you to understand where & how to use its products, as well as how much you'll need. We are happy to work with you and help you to make the right choices for your project. The subjects can range:
Where to place the air barrier: interior, exterior or both?
Do I need an additional layer to prevent "Wind Washing"? Would that be tape, a membrane, or both? It depends on the wall and the project goals. Sealing the exterior sheeting is always good. Whether you seal the sheeting or the house wrap can depend on where you place the air barrier and how tight you want the envelope.
How to plan for it at the design stage? Draw the air barrier as a continous line around the envelope. It should always be coneected and never broken.
How to specify it on my CD's? Simply place the product name and application on the detail sheet.
Can you "mark-up" my drawings and suggest where what goes? Yes we can. Send a PDF set to: firstname.lastname@example.org
What products work for what applications and on what materials or substartes? See the Manual or Material Template.
Will I need a primer? When and where? Rarely. Only when applying a tape to a concrete or other masonry.
Where can I see videos on how to instal or apply these materials? Visit our Youtube Channel for the complete library of instalation videos.
We are here to help you with all your questions. We'll reveiw your drawings and come up with a material "take off". It's a free service and helps to make sure you've got your bases covered while helping us to understand the way you build so that future projects can be easier to estimate.
Start by sending us a set of your PDF Plans to email@example.com. Once we've received them, we'll reveiw the plans and be in contact with you.
