This episode of the Fine Homebuilding podcast is brought to you by Loctite’s TITE FOAM.
The best builders take weatherization seriously. When they need to seal a gap that’s too small for insulation but big enough to create a draft, they reach for Loctite’s TITE FOAM. With three formulations for everything from small cracks to the biggest gaps, there’s a TITE FOAM product for every job, including a low-expanding product designed to seal the rough opening around windows and doors. The high-density foam forms a tenacious bond to most common building materials, stays flexible to prevent cracking when materials move, and keeps air, moisture, and pests out of the house. Builders who care about energy efficiency, comfort, and durability choose TITE FOAM. Visit Loctiteproducts.com for more information.
