Question DetailsAsked on 10/3/2016

Can I put wood siding over existing wood siding with or without house wrap.

I have a 1940s cottage that is not winterized and we live in Ontario Canada, with cold winters and hot summers. It still has the original tongue and groove painted pine siding on the outside. We have gutted the inside to the studs and we are contemplating spray foaming the walls. Our concern is that if we decide to side the outside in the future be(cause the existing wood is in rough shape), we won't be able to remove the siding because the spray foam will be attached to it. We want to spray foam to seal the many cracks and knot holes where water and sand are getting blown in. There is no house wrap, just studs and the pine siding. Is spray foam advisable and if so, can we put 4x8 sheets of "Smart Panel" wood siding right over top of the existing wood siding in the future without worry of rotting original wood siding. Do we need house wrap or an air gap to do this? Thanks,
