Sealing Screw Penetrations Through Water-Resistive Barrier
We are using a house-wrap WRB like ProClima Mento/Fronta, exterior insulation and a rain screen, with HeadLok structural screws to fasten the battens onto the house.
I don’t see much of people talking about sealing the screw penetrations through the WRB. Is this not an issue because the screw hole is air and/or water tight? I see for the roofs there are products like Tescon Naideck https://foursevenfive.com/tescon-naideck/ to deal with penetrations but I don’t see anything for the walls.
Thanks for your thoughts.
