Integrity of Blueskin Housewrap Left Exposed for Months
We finally got the material to finish the job but we are over 150 days of exposure now which according to VP100 spec sheet is the max amount of exposure.
When it was installed we used a primer
It is pretty wrinkled ( probably from the elements but it still is adhered to the strapping.
We did use a roller when we applied it and it was pretty smooth but it seems more wrinkled now )
this is an inside parapet wall with the other side completely covered.
We will be adding furring strips and will install the metal siding to those.
We need advice on if this needs to be removed ( not sure how ), if we can leave it as is, or if we should put something over it ( if that is even possible, meaning maybe an extra layer of WRB ). I would have to buy more Blueskin but I do have extra Typar from another job and I could put it over the Blueskin for extra protection if it is deemed that that Blueskin is past it’s expiry date.
I am located in Manitoba. We had snow in the winter but not much, not a lot of sun either and have had hardly any rain since the snow melted. In other words perfect weather for this location and not much wear and tear on the weather barrier.
Thanks any advice is appreciated.
