Any experience with QuietBrace? I have the option to go with either that or OSB for sheathing. I am not sure that structurally QuietBrace provides the same benefit as OSB or not. I believe that in terms of moisture control and sound control, it may be better than OSB. Please provide me with any inputs on this.

It is starting to be used a lot down here in Austin. It meets all of the same criteria for structural and vapor retarding as OSB. Additionally, it suppresses noise better and the two different varieties have an R-value ranging from 1.6 to 2. If you are ever planning on building a home in an area with strict energy code requirements, this stuff is a good bang for your buck to use vs. foam board.

I would think that a product like this could cause some problems where items need to be fastened to the sheathing alone. It isn't always easy to find a stud where you want it. Just a thought. 

Also, I would want to know how it holds up to drastic humidity. I remember when Masonite came out, many decades ago. It was touted as a great product, but years later, people's houses were literally rotting from water and humidity penetration. I, personally, would want to wrap this product, just to be sure.

I've mentioned Matt Risinger's Blog before. You might want to check out his last two postings to see if they shed any light on your question.

Matt is a builder in Austin, and I've found his blog pretty informative. Hope it helps you.
