What tape to use on fan fold insulation?
 
I'm putting the fan fold insulation behind my siding but Im not sure which type of tape to use for sealing the seams? Thanks

well
 
I use tyvek tape or another exterior siding brand. They sell them at the lumberyard, not the box store and are expensive...but hold really well in fluctuating temps.

See signature.

Haha jk.

Tyvek tape for sure. Spend the extra bucks. You will save it on a leak
