One or the other

In reply to Where does a vapor barrier fit in? by Fred in TX on September 6th, 2000 03:40 PM [Go to top of thread]

Tyvek is used as an infiltration barrier, which is more important in the north; you don't want cold air coming into your house when it is zero. You wouldn't really need tyvek in the south if your need is a vapor barrier on the outside, because the vapor barrier would do the job of keeping wind and water out.
