foam board install

I am installing foamboard on concrete walls in the basement, and wanted to know after I seal the concrete do just liquidnails it onto the walls or do I still need to fur them out

don't need to seal the concrete if you're putting up foam. Use the adhesive that is made for the application, it says it right on the tube.

Life's too short...so enjoy it!

I'd add to that: Assuming your walls are dry all the time. If not, fix the outside first.
