I'm preparing to replace some (wood/clapboard) siding and
figured I'd need to replace the house wrap, too. It looks
like whoever built the fireplace/chimney used tar paper
(that stuff that goes on the roof under the shingles) as
house wrap and didn't bother to overlap around the corners.
Yesterday I priced house wrap and the cheapest roll at Do
It Best (9' x 100') costs $200!!!! Oh my!
Does that sound reasonable? It sounds expensive to me, but
I've never gone shopping for house wrap before.
Is there something else I can use (like that tar paper
stuff) that's less expensive?
I know some of you are going to say "get the good stuff and
do it well the first time," but I'm unemployed and on a
very strict budget. Best to fix it now so it's "satisfactory"
and worry about "well" when I find a job.
Thanks in advance,
