In this regard, should I use house wrap?
Using house wrap is very important to provide a barrier for moisture and other concerns. Some codes require house wrap or another type of coating, while others do not. You have options, but house wrap is often the most logical of the options since it provides a radiant barrier.
Additionally, is house wrap better than tar paper? A high-quality house wrap, like Barricade® Building Wrap, is more resistant to ripping and tearing during installation than felt paper. The integrity of house wrap ensures its performance in resisting air and moisture and makes it the better choice for a weather resistant barrier over felt paper.
