I met the North American arm of German company Cosella Dorkin a few years ago at Joe Lstiburek’s Summer Camp and have been very impressed with their company. They are a 100 year old family owned company that’s been in the waterproofing business since the 1960’s but have only started selling their products in the US for the last 5-10 years. Look for my videos on their sticky housewrap called Delta Vent SA, and my new favorite rainscreen product for Stucco & Stone installs called Delta Dry Stucco & Stone. I also used their UV Stable housewrap for an Ipe siding install recently, that’s a product called Fissade S.

Lastly, if you aren’t a current subscriber to the Journal of Light Construction I highly recommend that magazine. I’ve got a $9.99/year offer for my blog followers on this link only! I’ve been reading JLC for about 15 years now and I’ve learned SO much over the years. It’s been invaluable in my education as a professional contractor. I’m now writing for them and I’ve had several articles published too. By subscribing you’ll have access to their online archives also. They helped sponsor my IBS trip this year and I’m grateful to their partnership in my blog (and their commitment to bettering our industry through education).
