Large section of siding removed - use house wrap before re-siding?


Hi there,

I recently removed a large screened-in back porch. What I've got now is 2/3 of the back of the house that I need to install siding on.

Before I install the siding, it makes sense to put a water barrier on, such as a house wrap. However, this is not "new construction," so the windows and doors are already in place, etc.

Is there a certain technique to follow when installing the water barrier on old construction? Most of what turns up in searches is not applicable to my situation.

Thanks!

of course you're adding house wrap,,, the technique is tucking the new under the old siding & using const adhesive to seal the jnts,,, tools needed incl putty knife, utility knife, caulking gun, caulk, & beer
