What is the best sheathing product in NA ?
I would like to know what you believe is the best sheathing material for use on new homes/building for specific construction type ?
Criteria i would like to consider are :
1- carbon/green/energy/environmental impact of product usage and manufacturing
2- mechanical properties of the sheathing
3- insulative value
4- water/moisture resistance
5- air permeability/ability to dry etc..
( am i missing an important point? )
The types of system to consider are of high performance only.
I would suggest discussing for -
- in/out insulated stick framed ( double walled or simple )
- REMOTE/PERSIST type
- More exotic such as light gauge metal framing ( ext insulation )
