Vapor Barrier Termination for Monolithic Slab On Grade

sidekickarchitects | Posted in General Questions on

For a monolithic slab-on-grade, if I run the vapor barrier (Stego Pango) below the slab then down, under, and back up the outside vertical face of the turned-down footing, how/where do I terminate it? Should I bring it all the way up to the bottom of the Zip sheathing and then use Prosoco Seam and Joint Filler to bridge that sill connection? Would the damp-proofing treatment then go outside of the vapor barrier and the slab edge rigid insulation would go outbound of the damp-proofing? What product do folks here like for damp-proofing the outside face of a monolithic slab on grade?
