If cost was not a concern, what would you recommend is the best material (durable, high quality) to use for Water Resistive Barrier on top of Plywood? I have heard mixed reviews on Zip Systems as something production builders use since it's easy to install but don't know which type of material is good? E.g. Asphalt felt, Plastic houewrap, Liquid-applied WRB, Rigid Foam, Delta Dry etc.
Is the ZIP sheathing system good or bad for water control?
