vinyl siding applied over bubble wrap (ok? Yes or No


Contractor wants to do this. It just don't seem like a good idea to me.

Does bubble wrap hold up in the extreem heat in south Louisiana?

I've never heard of such a thing but then again, I'm not in Louisiana.

How about providing us with an actual product name.

A suggestion, before, not after the install contact the manufacture of the siding and ask then if it's ok.

What is there in, and on the wall now?

Bubble wrap will form a vaper barrier on the outside of the wall, not a good thing, it really needs to be on the inside.
It will add about a 0 R insulation value.
