Slab Happy Insect Barrier? #green
I'm guessing that most of the regular readers on this forum are familiar with Joe Lstiburek's article, "Slab Happy." If not, you can check it out here: http://www.buildingscience.com/documents/insights/bsi-059-slab-happy Regarding the insulated stemwall design, he discusses the need for a capillary break and insect barrier over the foam at the slab edge: "Now install a strip of waterproofing set in mastic that spans the rigid edge insulation and acts as both a capillary break and an insect barrier." Has anyone found a really good product or combination of products for this application? Something that will withstand the rigors of the construction cycle, still do the job afterwards?
