Wall Sheathing question

Just wondering if I should apply a self adhering membrane between plywood wall sheathing joints and at the outside corners of each wall? I planned on just sheathing and putting the tyvek house wrap on but lately I have seen builders put on the membrane at wall sheathing joints. What are people's thoughts? Thanks.

Re: Wall Sheathing question

IMO, a house wrap applied correctly is all the protection you need, to create a leak froof exterior. Adding membrane won't hurt.
