Perimeter Slab insulation around monolithic pour
I have read most articles and Q&A on this topic. I still don’t quite get the typical detailing of rigid foam around a monolithic slab.
If I fully support my walls over the footing there is 2″ of rigid foam outside the plane of the wall at the foundation. Would I use a step flashing here? How do I protect the buried rigid foam from bugs? Or do I just cross my fingers and hope for the best?
