I want to attach a 20 mil vapor barrier about 2 feet up the foundation
wall in my crawlspace. What is a good way to do this?
I have seen/heard of two methods:
(1) use a ramset (gun that fires a nail) to attach a strip of wood on
the wall pinning the vapor barrier under the strip
(2) drill holes on the cement wall with hammerdrill, then use some sort
of nylon fastener to attach the vapor barrier
Which method is best (or more code compliant)? Are there other methods?
Also, what kind of sealant/glue can I use to make the vapor barrier
on-wall somewhat air tight? I don't want water vapor from under the
vapor barrier to come out along the wall and attack the wood structure
