    Morning all. I am building a timber workshop and want to wrap a breathable membrane around the outside before applying batterns and the cladding. all the breathable membranes I have found state for use with roofs.... I assume there is no reason why these can't also be used for timber walls? such as this one on screwfix website

    Can't see anything in Cromar specs for use with walls, only walls. if you use start from the bottom & allow a 150mm overlap.

    You can get breather membranes, that are vapour permeable membrane mainly for timber frame wall applications, or combined type for wall & roof.

    Also the only site I have found it on is for a 100meter roll. I only need 50. can you recommend an alternative?

    I’m looking for an alternative to Tyvek as struggling to source the 25m I’m gonna need for my man cave build. Will the A1 protect definitely be ok?
