Polyurethane caulk for bottom plate to slab sealing
I’ve been reading the various posts on bottom plate air sealing on this site. I’d like to avoid the expense of EPDM or Denarco sill seal. I’m wondering if laying down a healthy bead of a polyurethane caulk on top of the foundation wall prior to tipping up the walls will produce an adequate seal? In addition, the bottom plate would have the standard contractor 1/4 inch foam seal. Your thoughts appreciated.
