What is your opinion on covering open framing prior to rain?
Year after year I find myself in the situation of being mid-framing and having multiple rain storms come through. I tend to cover up PSLs, LVLs, and other engineered lumber. I also try to cover as much of the frame as possible. I often see other builders in the same boat not do anything about the rain and let it dump on their open frame, which makes me question why I throw away profit margins on labor and a huge waste of plastic. How would you handle a rain storm on an open framing project as it applies to moisture content of the wood, dry time, mold issues, and engineered lumber?
