In an environment with a lot of moisture would vertical corrugated metal siding need furring strips?
building a house in Houston, and will be installing vertical corrugated siding.
from the design phase I had planned to use furring strips to hold siding off tyvek house wrap. but now that i’m about to install i’m thinking the furring strips would not be of any use. if anything it seems they might even hinder air/water from moving vertically behind panels. because of this i am considering using cor-a-vent as furring strips but again i’m just curious if this expense and extra step will be helpful at all.
thanks in advance for your input.
