    Default BlueCor/Thermoshield

    Should not the BlueCor should:
    1- Lay flat against the house.
    2-Nail fasnters not underdriven (saw many that damaged the BlueCor)

    Builder used "window wrap" flashing to seal corner walls, penetrations, damaged BlueCor, Thermosheath. Is this acceptable?

    Yes


    "2-Nail fasnters not underdriven (saw many that damaged the BlueCor)"
    I think you mean "overdriven" as in driven to far into the sheeting.
    Overdrvien is a no no.
    Underdriven is where the fasteners are not driven deep enough, also a no no.

    I was told by the city inspection dept 20 years ago that staples were not allowed anymore.

    "Builder used "window wrap" flashing to seal corner walls, penetrations, damaged BlueCor, Thermosheath. Is this acceptable?"
    I don't see that window wrap would be a problem.

    Not trying to shoot you down, but the peel-n-stick flashing I am familiar with can be used on doors, corners, seams, windows, and probably other places as well. At least thats he way I remember it.
