I'm planning to replace LP SmartSide paneling on a rental property with the same. I figured I'd install 15lb felt underneath it. Since the LP paneling is sheathing and siding combined into one, I'll be laying the felt directly on framing members (studs, headers, etc).
1. I've never installed felt paper on framing. What sort of fasteners and schedule should I use?
2. I'll be using self-adhesive flashing around openings. I'm not removing/reinstalling windows and doors. Should the flashing rest over the felt edge (partially, of course), or be under it?
BTW, there's no point in cautioning me against using LP SmartSide. I'm only doing the back of the home (where the product has failed). I need the replaced area to match the rest of the house (3/4 of the home is LP). No time or budget for a complete re-siding to something else.
