Exterior Finish Must Be Thick Than Sheathing Or.... Bug Bug Bug

Recommended Posts

Take a look at this plan and picture.  Notice if the ply sheathing between exterior finish and wall studs is THICKER than EXTERIOR FINISH,  the sheathing pops through.

 

Note that on CA's default exterior siding wall,  the ply/osb is 7/16" and the wood siding is 1/2" thick.  The  ply is thinner than exterior  finish.

Same z-fighting result even if the sheathing is the SAME thickness as the exterior siding.

 

Workaround is to fit the frame to the wall and increase the inset of the sash:
