Peel-and-stick similar to drainable housewrap
I’m in the process of designing and thinking through a house in zone 4A, about an hour north of Nashville TN. I’m planning on installing recycled exterior rigid foam insulation with innie windows. I like the idea of having a drainable house wrap installed between the sheathing and the rigid foam, but I don’t like the idea of thousands of holes from staples.
I have been looking for a peel and stick membrane that would be textured or rippled like the drainable house wraps that are available, but no success so far. I like that this removes all the staples, works as an air barrier, and can be properly shingled going up the side of the house.
I was going to go with Zip sheathing behind the foam, but when I read on here about the drainable house wrap it made me question the idea of having the foam pressed up against the WRB.
Does anyone know of a product that might do what I’m looking for? Or is Zip behind the foam going to allow the water to drain like I hope?
