Hi my house was built 8 years ago, its one of those homes built in a factory and transported to site by truck. My house has vinyl cladding on the outside, l recently removed a plank of vinyl cladding to look what behind it and l was expecting to see the plastic wall wrap covering the timber walls that you see covering most new houses but there was no plastic wrap , instead there was thin white panels of Polystyrene covering the timber walls, it was thin and breaks easily.
l was wondering if that's OK , does it matter or should they have put in plastic wrap instead.

Wall wrap are not mandatory.
thnanks, even though its not mandatory , in terms of protecting my house from moisture, insects or harm am l at a disadvantage with thin polystyrene or Styrofoam sheets rather then having the normal house wall wrap behind the vinyl cladding? or does it not really matter, is one more durable or water proof then the other, do you think they didn't put in wall warp to cut corners or save money or could there be a practical reason such as Styrofoam or polystyrene sheets could be better
