Sticky House Wrap? - Delta Vent SA Review

I think the future of our industry is moving towards either Peel & Stick house wraps, or to Fluid Applied air/water barriers.  I just did my first house with German manufacturer Cosella-Dorken's Delta Vent SA and here's a video review.  

 In summary, I've really liked this Delta Vent SA product. I may be hard to find in your area, but if you're looking to ratchet down your air tightness and have a high perm house wrap this product is fantastic.
Best,
Matt Risinger
