Will my home blow away when the wolf huffs and puffs?
My home has no house wrap, the walls are just vinyl siding, 3/4" foam, studs and fiberglass insulation, and drywall; there is NO PLYWOOD/WAFER BOARD on my exterior walls! Nice building codes in 1988 when it was built; I'm told there is plywood at the corners of the home. I plan on re-siding in a few years anyway with Hardiplank, so I'll have to plywood it then too. I've never heard of such a thing. I've worked at buiding material stores since 1985 in New England until I moved here 8 years ago, and was very surprised to find out this was allowed at all. Now I'll be ever more nervous when the next hurricane hits, will an object come right through my wall?
