Tape/caulk over nail holes in sheathing?
I’m detailing my 1/2″ plywood exterior sheathing as my primary air barrier. I’ll be taping all of the seams between sheets, but should I also run tape (or sealant) over the nails in the middle of each sheet?
I’ve seen this done on Zip homes often since the sheathing itself is the WRB, but my WRB will be a separate house wrap, so my only concern here is air-sealing strength/longevity.
