I think tyvek in general is useless ill take tar paper over any day, I would never use tyvek I've seen too much rot under it

What's wrong with tar paper it's worked for over a hundred years I pull off paper that is fine and the wood underneath us in great shape

reason being breathability of the product. tyvek is water proof but can still breathe.. as for the inspectors, it depends on the inpsector and the region

I'm sure it has to work other wise they wouldn't sell it. I guess I'm just old school like the way they used to do things and I try to replicate that I do a lot of work on really old buildings by the ocean and they t in great shape

Lol leave it to two woodworkers to debate over products over a simple question which had nothing to do with those products.

on the coast tar paper will still have issues. the salt breaks it down. we use more and more blueskin on the coast. i work do complete remodels and install wood and fibre cement siding on most of these places. more often than not we omit the house wrap if were foaming the outside. with a proper instlall of shipplap type 2 foam the house will stay dry and the foam wont break down
