what kind of housewrap


We just got a new door put in our house and had to remove some siding in order to do that.


We are planning on installing some vinyl up and around the door but need to put some sort of protection over the plywood in the meantime.

It seems like a huge waste to buy 100' roll of housewrap when i barely need anything

Would a plastic drop cloth for painting work??

I hope you don't live where it rains; forgot your jamb/head paper before installing the door, and the sticky wrap, and maybe the sill pan...; http://www.buildingscience.com/docum...researchreport
