Details for bottom plate to slab
Hope everyone enjoys the memorial day weekend. I’m framing tomorrow in a basement and want to double check the details. I’m attaching PT 2×4 to slab for bottom plate. I saw something called FoamSealR at the box store. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Owens-Corning-FoamSealR-3-1-2-in-x-50-ft-Multi-Use-Ridged-Sill-Plate-Gasket-1FS/202084452
Do I place this underneath the PT bottom plate for extra protection and against foundation walls that come in contact to PT wood? Before tapconning my bottom plate in, do I use construction adhesive to attach bottom plate to concrete or does the adhesive cause mold and rot underneath the bottom plate? How are you suppose to attach the sill gasket to wood or concrete?
