Taping sheathing vs housewrap – which do you prefer and why?
A question for builders and building science geeks –
Part of achieving a good air barrier involves taping all the laps of housewrap on walls.
What are the pros & cons of taping the sheathing joints instead, before housewrap installation?
Also, roof sheathing could be taped the same way. I know there’s more to a full air barrier system (doors, windows, penetrations…) but I just want to focus on the one point of taping. Thanks.
