Hello. I recently finished a new construction home. The plans called for a rainscreen (furring strips) but the builders did not have it done. I’m wondering if I will have issues due to this. The siding is horizontal cedar, cedar clapboad, and horizontal PVC. We used blue skin and plywood for sheathing and have Rockwool for insulation. We are having issues with the pvc cracking but not sure if this is a result of the rainscreen.
