Siding question

7 posts in this topic

When re siding do you have to re wrap the house or does the old wrap work?

It's not much of a "barrier" with holes in it, is it?

Is it code? I am having it done and was just wondering if I should expect new wrap. My point exactly. What good is it if it is full of holes. Thanks

If I'm not mistaken, this is an insurance claim. They pay in a specific line item on your adjuster's papers to replace the house wrap. If they are paying for it, I would have it done.

If not, I would leave it up to the inspector on what they want. I am pretty sure they would say to replace it. This doesn't necessarily mean the old stuff is torn off, but new wrap should be put on.

Is it code? Yes, house wrap is code and it must be taped on vertical laps, so that would make me think it should not have any holes in it.

On our jobs, we add a price for new house wrap and you bet we put it on.

If you do a remodel,upgrade, code is to be brought up to current specs.However the condition of the barrior that is there and code, is up to the local inspecter If its damaged,Ask.Because code is how that inspecter inturprets it.My guess is replacement seeing taped laps are normally done to prevent moisture transfer and its not completely sealed with holes.But its up to the inspecter.

Here's a trick I saw a sider use. When removing the old siding, he drew a line at the top of each row. All pieces that were cut were marked and later used as a pattern for the new pieces. This worked especially well for shakes and peakes. Note: by doing this they were able to place the new nails directly in the old holes thus no new holes in the wrap.

Thanks, I will have to look at the insurance claim to make sure. The old wrap on my garage isn't even taped on the vertical seams. Sure hope they do the wrap.

    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
