Siding Preparation

If you are a homeowner who is looking to add siding, your wall protection is very important. Search for products that offer adequate protection to your walls without allowing water to be trapped between your siding and your wall.

For instance, if you are putting on a product that uses thinset or mortar to prepare the walls for adding stone, be sure you have at the minimum 2 layers of house wrap. The thinset literally destroys the top layer of house wrap over time. If you only have one layer, moisture will certainly make its way into your walls, and eventually you could have a serious mold problem, or at minimum, you could have rotted framework on your house.

I found some great wall protection products from Benjamin Obdyke. They manufacture high quality house wrap options with drainage.
