Carefully protect all nearby surfaces not intended for treatment. Immediately clean up incidental contact using mineral spirits or similar solvent.
Prepare all rough openings with Joint & Seam Filler and/or FastFlash. Allow to skin over. Overlap Cat 5 onto FastFlash by 2 inches or more. A slightly diagonal vertical application stroke provides best coverage.
If errant nails or fasteners that do not engage with studs are removed, fill the holes with additional Joint & Seam Filler to ensure the continuity of the air and water-resistive barrier.
