gaps between sheathing and sill plate
i live in wilmington,nc
i replaced rotted osb boards and where it is installed there are some places where i see daylight where sheathing meets the sill plate. on the exterior side is tyvek and hardiplank . do i need to seal these places before batt insulation is installed, or leave as is? and where the sill plate meets slab..thanks
also second photo is where the new sheathing buts up to the old. the horizontal gap in one area is just under 1/4 inch should i caulk this?
thanks for the help
