No Tar Paper or Tyvek under C;ap Board?


Posted by Mike Concordia on April 14th, 2003 09:53 PM

I'm getting ready to install some new windows on a wood frame colonial built in 1975 in eastern CT. While removing some of the clap board I was suprised to find that there is no tar paper or tyvek between the plywood and clap board (except for a 6" wide strip around the windows). Is this just shoddy construction or might this have been common practice at this time?
