Best way to attach foam board to concrete foundation?
I've recently begun building energy effecient homes and would like input about how others are attaching rigid foam board to concrete stem walls. I'm using a pier on grade beam foundation which requires 8"-10" of concrete to be covered. I've used all different types of adhesives and haven't found any that stick right away. We usually have to lean a 2x4 against it or shovel some dirt against it.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. We are using Owens Corning 1" foamular 150.
