Wrapping a home with insulating sheathing saves energy and can be cost effective, but the design must consider a host of structural concerns including moisture, shear loads, insects and fire. by [ ]. Building codes require that walls resist wind pressures and wall-racking forces and provide weather protection. Wall sheathing is essential to the structural integrity of a home. Structural wood panel sheathing contributes to the structure's ability to handle uplift loads, lateral loads and wind pressures while providing secure connection to.
