Does V-match pine compromise a polyethylene vapor barrier?
I’m building in Climate Zone 6 with 2×6 studded walls filled with Roxul (rock wool) batts, R23. Currently I have 1″ of polystyrene on exterior (R5). I’m planning on using 6 mil poly but then using v-match pine boards on the inside of the wall, thus hundreds of nail holes…is this considered to be a compromise of the vapor barrier, or is it assumed there will be no air leakage around the nails? Thanks for you help.
