Brandon Whitmore Posted May 11, 2007 Report Share Posted May 11, 2007 I inspected a house with blue foam sheathing panels. There is a piece of flashing that is sandwiched between the siding and foam and wraps down beneath the sheathing (so you can only see the foam at foundation level if you bend out the flashing). The foam only extends down to the TOP of the sill plate. I am having trouble finding specific standards for installation this foam sheathing, but shouldn't the sheathing run down below the bottom edge of the sill plate to ensure water that gets behind the siding sheds away from the sill plate/ framing? I checked a couple other homes in the neighborhood and this installation is the same throughout (subdivision built in 2000). Any help would be appreciated. P.S. - there is no visible wall sheathing or housewrap on this application Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
