i have a ranch house that in want to re-side and put all new windows in. The way the exterior is now its like 3/8 of an inch plywood with 5/8th an inch blue styrofoam then vinyl siding. the thing that bothers me is they set back the studs so the blue styrofoam is even with the 2x4's . I like better my last place was 1/2 osb with tyvek and it stuck out the 1/2 inch. i dont like the way the siding nails thru that styrofoam and i want to put in new construction windows and would rather they be nailed to plywood instead of styrofoam. question is how could i make up this space if i ripped off the foam and get it to end up a 1/2 inch overhang? could i plywood right over the foam
(just curious i doubt i would do that one)? or should i just tyvek over what i have and reside it ? The good news its a ranch so it would be easy to replywood or something .
