Wall Assembly for Envelope Retrofit
I have a home with plastic between the drywall and studs. Currently, I have no wrap between siding and chipboard sheathing. I will be replacing my cedar siding with hardieplank. My question is: should I place house wrap between the sheathing and siding. I would then have (inside to outside) drywall, studs & insulation, sheathing, wrap, and siding. With this system is there concern with moisture building up between the plastic and the wrap (ie, studs and insulation). Zone 5.
