Suggestions for Foundation Sealing Detail
Hi, looking for advice on a sealing detail “fix” for a build outside Houston (climate zone 2).
The perimeter of my house uses 2×6 treated plates for the sill, with BG75 gaskets stapled to the bottom. These plates rest on a concrete slab, where we also laid a bead of Contega HF around the perimeter and around the foundation bolts. In a couple of spots, there is a visible gap, and I am looking for advice on how to address these gaps. Can I just stuff the Contega sealant in those gaps until the daylight is no longer visible through the gaps, or should I ask my builder to do something more involved?
If it matters, we will be using ZipR for the sheathing, with Liquid Flash sealing that to the foundation.
