  2. @mattrisinger — I have an old post frame building with metal exterior that was built on a concrete slab, however, no barrier between concrete and frame; any advise? I don't want to tear the thing down, but I don't want wood rot

  8. I built a shed and did NOT do this type of sealing, and when it rains water comes in under the sill. I’ve already installed stone and siding. Any recommendations, should I seal from the inside? Thanks.

  13. Does this fill larger gaps, up to an inch? Have a new NVR Dan Ryan home and I can see light and my lawn down between the wall and concrete, lots of air and bugs right into the wall cavity.

  19. So how is this done after the fact. Tons of us know that many builders do it fast and cheap, leaving it up to the home owners down the line to deal with it. In a completely finished basement, how do you deal with this, besides tearing your entire basement apart down to the studs?

  20. Matt. icf blocks were used to build my underground garage and stick on membrane waterproofed it. But below the above ground cladding and the ground, is a gap where i can still see the stick on membrane which goes all the way down into the ground. im worried about uv damage to that and think it should be covered? what should be done between the ground and where the cladding starts to cover the membrane? is there video on that.
