Water or Weather Resistive Barrier.


The preparation of the wall is as important (more important in some folks opinion) as the installation of the cladding. My opinion is that both have to work in conjunction with one another, primarily through specific flashing details that manage water infiltration and force that water back to the outside of the cladding.


It's not that it took him an hour to make 100 bucks, it's that it didn't take you 10 hours to save 100 bucks.

lone is right, the prep work is the most important part of a siding job.. get the place 100% weather tight before a single piece of siding gets hung.. the only leaks you should be hearing about from the home owner are from the windows the home owner left open during the rain storm thats their fault not the installers fault
