Air-Sealing Bottom Plate-to-Slab Transition
Been following Matt Risinger (Build Show) for tips on better building since we started our house build project since we are in the same climate zone 2. Was planning to follow the detail he has in this video of a caulk sandwich for airsealing where bottom plate meets the slab foundation. Unfortunately, due to shortage of raw materials, this particular product, DAP Sound Block E90 is on a long backorder. I’ve already reached out to DAP for an alternative product to use but they said this is the only one of its kind. We are framing in 5 days so we will need to have a gameplan for this airsealing detail to be implemented. Could you please help us? Love this build community. See attached photo for the breakdown of the sandwich layer.
