Caulk plywood sheathing seams from inside?
We are gut-renovating a house in NJ, USA. The new 2×6 walls have plywood sheathing, and the old 2×4 walls have ye olde T&G sheathing.
Both the new and old walls have tons of gaps in the sheathing, many as wide as 1/4 inch, along the whole length of the wall.
Should I caulk those gaps from the inside as much as possible?
Will this present any problems for drying of the wood?
Is a product such as Big Stretch a good choice?
Outside the house has regular Tyvek installed, with Hardie Plank soon to be added on top. The wall cavities will be insulated with rock wool or fiberglass.
