Attaching Typar to concrete foundation

Post by darren.susin » Fri Jul 13, 2018 11:26 am

hey everyone,

I'm currently working on a cabin. I've put the Typar up, and am planning on working on the siding soon.

I want to caulk / glue the Typar to the concrete to stop any critters from getting up there. I live north of 60, so termites and bugs are not a major issue, but I'd like to get it sealed up.

Would most caulkings work, or is there one that is better for concrete / Typar?

Thanks
Darren

I should add that I didn't put in any kind of Z flashing under the sill gasket or anything like that.

You should be able to find Double Sided Peel & Stick tape for construction.
This would seal the gap between the concrete & plywood than remove the peel and stick the vapor barrier.

I should have indicated for the use of a primer as related to the double sided tape. Just remembered look at Vycor products I think they still have the double sided tape.

Yes if you want to do this you should use a peal and stick product on the concrete and you can then seal the Tupac to that using a tuck tape.
