Hey Carl real big moisture problems with this house 4 years old windows leaking, water in the walls. What is your opinion of dry set stone veneer. All of the info I have been able to determine with talking with the owners the moisture barrier behind the stone consists of one layer of Ty vex nothing else. I am waiting on the rain this evening before I make a full scan of the interior. One of the windows already has the dry wall removed and the OSB pegs out my moisture meter from the interior side. I will have more Pics after the full inspection

It is a proven fact that cement should never come in contact with tyvek a chemical reaction renders the tyvek useless. Dupont will tell you it is OK to put on 2 layers and you will be safe. (cough cough)

Is there any evidence that they might have pulled the tyvek into the head of the windows? Behind the nail fin and flashing.

The windows have already failed massively.

Thanks for the reply Jim, I have been talking with my nephew who is a masonry contractor and his explanation was basically the same as yours and Carl's. He stated that he has done some dry sets on Stone and what mortar is used is applied behind the stone which in case is going to be in contact with the Tyvex. It has already been pretty well decided that all exterior cladding is going to be removed and start from scratch
