Basement framing over radiant heat tubing
To all that contribute priceless information on this site...I frequently visit this forum and appreciate all the good advice that I have gained through your experience and knowledge. I have a dilemma that I hope can be answered. I am about to start framing my basement. I know I am supposed to use pressure treated wood anywhere the base plates are installed, where wood touches the concrete. My problem is that I have radiant tubing imbedded in the concrete floor and I have no way to determine where the tubes are, and I don't want to take a chance that I will pierce the tubes. How can I attach the base plates to the concrete floor without nails or screws? Is there a special industrial strength adhesive that I can use?
