Exterior foam and vertical vinyl siding
My contractors are about to begin installation of a somewhat protected exterior wall. We'll be applying exterior rigid foam siding and Mastic vertical vinyl siding. I believe we all advocate the use of furring strips between the rigid foam and the siding, but I was just reading the Mastic installation directions and they are suggesting that for their vinyl siding (vertical or horizontal) there be a layer of sheathing between the furring strips and the siding. This strikes me as a poor way to build a rainscreen.
I also know people here have recommend a variety of rain screen details for vertical siding vs horizontal.
What are your current recommendations for creating the rainscreen for vertical vinyl siding?
