Self-Adhered WRB on Board Sheathing
Would any of you have any knowledge of how a self adhered WRB performs when placed over board sheathing? Specifically, I am considering these materials for new construction.
Am I overthinking things when I imagine that there could be issues over the long term, with the gaps between boards / potential sharp corners, affecting long term air tightness? It occurs that the width of the gaps between boards could change throughout various seasons, I’m having trouble finding any info as to weather or not tears in the membrane could result.
Plywood is of course an option, I just happen to be planning on building in an area with a number of local sawmills (central VT).
