I am ready to start basement and just want to double check myself. I was hoping Worthy would give some tips.
House in central NJ, block walls fully below grade.
I want to glue 1" xps to walls than 2x4 walls with batt insulation.
Is 1" sufficient or do I need 1.5"? (I did the plastic test and had no signs of moisture).
What adhesive is best?
I plan on purchasing spray foam kit for rim joist area.
Will batt insulation be just as effictive for my area?
I was planning on laying 3/4" plywood on top of 3/4" p/t strips that are hiti into the concrete floor. ( This method was suggested by a contractor to avoid any problems in case of future flood.)
Would the building science method of 1" xps be better?
In case of any future flood that may happen will the xps hold-up?
Thanks for all the help.
