Underlayment - Poor Flashings and New Growth Wood

The industry today is at a new low.  The wrapping up of homes and buildings seems to have become a religion that cannot be broken.  The wrapping of the homes where the interior is sealed in an inferior way and the winter months' heating cycle pumps moisture vapor into the walls, dew points condense the vapor and mold and rot explode.  The exterior wrapping of the buildings is really an effort to cover deficiencies in the exterior cladding that leaks.

Bob Wewer discusses New Growth Wood and how, when exposed to water, organisms furiously feed on the wood that has less tannic acids than the wood products of yesterday.
