What do you like to have under the exterior Window/Door casings

  1. Great Stuff - Really is great! Expands tight and hardens hard

    60.0%
  2. Daptex Plus - Water base non toxic easy cleanup - does not expand as tight and hardens nice

    20.0%
  3. Fiberglass - Tuck in the right amount for the best R-Factor

    20.0%
  4. Roxul - 100% fire proof - more expensive and greater R Value but crumbles a little when tuckin in.

    Hello

    I am trying to make the house tight. Calking the exterior windows for air sealing is a must. Insulating that space between the window and the studs helps even more. Any window or door can be insulated better in this area by insulating more.

    Therefore what do you like?
