Foam Seal sill plate and vapor barrier ?

Post by M4rtin » Sun Apr 16, 2017 3:43 pm

I cannot quite figure this out, if installing foam gasket under blue wood or regular wood for basement wall, how do you tie in vapor barrier to it ?
Do you drape the wall with vapor barrier and cut even with floor and acoustic seal it to pink foam under base plate ?

Well first off if you are using blue wood you really do not need the gasket . If you are using gasket trim it flush to the wood and use acoustical right at the floor joint, the vapour barrier is then installed and stapled to the plate and pressed also into the acoustical .
