My home is 30 yrs. old I went through Hurricane IKE. The brick side of my house I have had to remove a portion of the vapor barrier. I know it was attatched to studs before brick exterior went up. I live in houston TX. What can I do and use to replace the vapor barrier that I had to remove ? I have a wedding this year and need to do this first. I replaced everthing on the exterior last year. Please help!

You will actually not want to use a vapor barrier but a drainage plane to stop bulk water from entering the wall cavity.

  • You will need to replace your vapor retarder...
