Hey all. Need some advice on wall assembly. I’m in Climate Zone 4 – KY and building a stone/brick veneer on wood frame in Spring. Important to me that wall assembly protect against water, air, vapor, thermal but I’m sensitive to VOCs and off gassing too. So, my idea is: 2×6 traditional stud frame 16 OC with ZipR-9 (5/8s brown) taped or 2.0 liquid seams (?), with rainscreen furring, Stone/brick cladding. In stud cavities – Owens Corning Thermafiber (formaldehyde free) wool bats, with Sheetrock.
Subfloor- Advantec 1 and 1/8” DAP glued and nailed.
I originally wanted to go with 3/4” plywood sheathing with Delta SA peel and stick wrap, but my builder is pushing ZipR instead to save a trip around the enclosure I assume. Being old school, I’m worried that 3/4” plywood is better than the 5/8” Zip OSB? Or I thought maybe Advantec Sheathing 23/32” with Delta SA wrap bc heard its super strong and water resistant. Confusing myself now. Lol
Thoughts or advice on these from you all who have worked with both? Thanks!!
