The siding company is having to redo the installation of my siding. I know the wrap underneath the siding that will be removed will end up having lots of holes after the planks are removed. The installer is planning to put up HardieWrap. I originally had paid extra (5 years ago) to have them install Dow Weathermate Plus house wrap. The installer is paying for all of the materials this time.
Would it cause a breathability problem to double wrap a house?
How does HardieWrap compare to other products on the market?
They said they can put the new wrap over the Weather mate Plus or tear it off. I am concerned about a breathability problem if I let them install it over the top of the other wrap, but I don't have confidence in the new product because it is fairly new on the market and I cannot find much information on it comparing it to other products like DuPont Tyvek. I was just told that the company has already ordered the materials and is coming this Tues.
What is the recommendation on HardieWrap? I know their siding has a great reputation, but is their wrap adequately tested?
