comment Is there code that states there must be a sheet of plastic between vinyl siding and the house sheathing?
@iLikeDirt It turns out I was speaking to the wrong person. They dealt with residential codes, but I needed commercial. I spoke with the commercial plans examiner and they informed that it has been code since at least 2011. Thanks for your answer, though I fear our true problems have only yet to begin.

Indeed it was toasted. I replaced it and the new one works. Good call

I just spoke with a rep at the building regulation department who advised that the code was changed in 2013 to require WRB. Since the install was in 2012, it's going to be far more difficult to take action. One of the other things the owner advised to do is caulk along the J channels to seal it from water entry. Has anyone heard of this before?

Also, I just Googled "ohio water resistive barrier code" and happened upon the ORC here: codes.ohio.gov/oac/4101%3A1-14. Is this where a code such as this would be found?

Great response. What if the company claims that there was no WRB there to begin with? Let's assume there wasn't. Is it their responsibility to put on new WRB? About the windows possibly not being flashed, is this also the responsibility of the vinyl installers?
