Question

Tar paper torn on side of house


So in the process of remodeling my bathroom I opened the inside walls and found a nail and a wood dowel had came thru and tore the tar paper from the outside. There is no evidence of holes outside or any leakage inside the wall. There is a gutter downspout that is suspect but the clamp is not accessible to see for sure. I call the gutter guy and he said it is fine to nail thru the stucco into the tar paper. ?? I cut the nail end off and the wooden dowel. Enough of the back round. I need to seal this barrier. I t seems that breaking the outside stucco to repair the paper seems extreme. I am planning to try and slip some paper on the outside wall side against the stucco and use some tar type adhesive to glue it there. Then I thought maybe some of that heavy tar type tape over that. I read about the polyurethane spray insulation making a moisture seal, but can not get any clarity on that. Any ideas or methods to perform these task are very much appreciated.

It's not a big deal, just put some house wrap tape over the hole.

Just add some tar paper there, cut a horizontal slit in existing paper at the hole, slip paper in/down on other side, up on inside to drain any liquid water. NO glue to stucco as the paper should be two layers; one for bond break (next to stucco) and other- WRB- next to studs. http://www.buildingscience.com/docum...ong-from-start

I really wish I fully understand how making a bigger hole makes a better seal. Do you have any pictures so I can understand how to do it. I only have access to the inside of the house. I really want to do it right I just don't understand how to slip the repair piece in.
Thanks for the help

Just make slits into the paper so it will rest around the dowel and tape it.
