From a building code perspective these sheathing materials require building officials to understand the code requirements and the underlying building science mechanisms related to: Protection from weather and the uncontrolled movement of air and water vapour, Wall bracing and sheathing thickness requirements, Protection from interstitial moisture, Rain shedding including flashing protection around windows and at the bottom of the wall. Building officials should understand the range of product types on the market and the new novel uses these products are beginning to enjoy.
