Why the Pros Stick with Ideal Tape Jacketing

Tuesday August 23, 2022

In the 15+ years our Ideal Seal 777 Jacketing has been on the market, we’ve never had a single warranty claim. We do, however, have many stories of success. One such story is the ten-year triumph on a cladding job where 777 was installed over insulation on the rooftop duct work at Val Ward Cadillac in Fort Myers, Florida, completed in 2012.

In 2022, our resident insulation expert Keith Klein, Territory Manager of the Southern US Region, visited the job site to see how our Ideal Seal 777 was holding up. Through ten years of unpredictable, changing weather conditions, the blazing hot sun, and even a hurricane, Keith reported that the 777 looked as good as it did 10 years ago. The jacketing never sagged, no seams lifted, and there were no signs of cracking, mold, or corrosion. It performed as expected; a zero-perm vapor barrier created a sealed system that withstood the test of time.

A novice without much experience installed the jacketing in no time at all, encountering no issues with the easy to apply system. It involves very few tools (in fact, we provide a complete toolkit in every box), it’s tidy, and it results in significant time and labor savings. Its two finishes, embossed and smooth, provide an aesthetically pleasing look, ensuring  your jobs have a clean, professional finish. Compared to traditional jacketing techniques like expensive metal or messy fab and mastic, Ideal Tape Jacketing outperforms all.

Ideal Seal 777 and Ideal Shield Jacketing are backed by a ten-year warranty, but as evidenced on the Val Ward HVAC system, even after ten years, the jacketing looks and performs as if it were still brand new.
