Building felt vs. house wrap – white cedar sidewall
We have only been specifying building felt as the WRB under cedar shingles. Several years ago there were issues with some of the house wraps disintegrating after being behind cedar sidewall for a few years. Presumably had something to do with the moisture held by the cedar and also certain oils in the cedar.
Does anyone know if this issue has been completely resolved? Any particular house wraps work more effectively than others?
