    Default What is this shealthing called?

    Over the past few years i've seen green sheathing on newer homes but i've never found out exactly what it's called or what it is made of. If the following link works, it shows the newTOH italianate with this green sheathing. Anyone know the name, what it's made of and why it's better than good ol' plywood sheathing?

    I've seen it, used it, and am not a fan of it as I see no advantage of it over the usual plywood or OSB with properly applied Tyvek. It goes up faster and easier, that's all, and that doesn't always make anything better. Another answer in search of a question!
