Housewrap over XPS or not?
I’ve read about wrb’s and foam and would appreciate any opinons regarding my situation. I’m enclosing my timber frame with a wrap and strap approach using reclaimed xps. Seams are all caulked and taped with siga wigluv 60. I’m debating how necessary house wrap is in this scenario. Other details that might be worth considering: 1″ straps and 1×8 plank siding with a 6″ reveal, 42″ deep overhangs on a roof with a rake edge elevation of 12′. The house is in the woods and location is western Adirondacks of New York. Thanks
