vinyl siding j boxes


Those J boxes for exterior outlets in vinyl siding do they go over or under the house wrap right against the sheathing?

Over. If it makes you feel better use some window tape over the top flange.

Should you incorporate a drip cap over the j box? Not even sure how you could though.
