Foam sheeting over wood plank siding on a 100-year-old+ home
So my house need to be resided.
Over wood plank siding [Editor’s note: sheathing?] there are already 2 layers of siding
2nd cedar shakes .
As I get down to the wood planking it’s flat and clean a few loose boards .a screws tightens them back solid.
My question is ??
Foam or foil faced sheeting with taped joints to seal gaps in planking and
cut drafts and leaks
Or just a tyvec over planks and then apply a vinyl siding .?
I know that doing and old house always leads to trouble questionable situations ,,and
One can never do “the right thing”
But not to do some things is just wrong
Thank you for time and input
