You recommend using "brands of tape that are more suitable for extreme temperature changes. Siga,Delta Multi-Band and Air Stop are three examples of tapes with much better adhesion." I'm in Montreal and i was trying to find one of these brands of tape in local hardware stores but I can't find it. Do you know of a source where I can get one of these or another brand and type of tape you would recommond for taping Tyvek Home wrap? It's for insulating a cabin in the upper Laurentians, so there will extreme temperature changes. Thanks! Frank
