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.

    • Looking at buying a tandem axle toy hauler ice house that can haul my Polaris General. Ive looked at Firebrand, Yetti, and Glacier. I like Firebrand the most but I want the Happi jac bed and they dont think General will fit.  Does anyone own a toy hauler with happi jac that will fit a full size side x side. Mine is 74'' tall and that's the issue.
    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.

    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
