Green Guard housewrap

13 years ago

We plan to side our house in Hardie, and have talked to several siding contractors. All but one of them use Tyvek housewrap. The remaining one said that with Tyvek it was possible that water could get trapped where the Hardie presses against the Tyvek, and that he preferred Green Guard because the vertical channels gave the water someplace to go.

We are in the midwest (so no hurricanes, but extreme winter and summer temps).

Thoughts on this? Is Green Guard superior?
