XPS on wall, and below slab
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi All,

This weekend I'll be finishing my french drain and possibly adding 2" XPS foam, depending on what you guys tell me...

From the picture, would it be OK if I concrete beside the XPS foam? I have 7'6" ceilings so a full 8ft pc of foam will not fit and instead of cutting it, could I leave the remaining beside/under the slab? I would imagine this would help push any moisture into the drain I have below?

Thanks Gary. For a second I thought you were making fun of me, until I read those pages and saw it was possible.

Thanks for all your continued help on here!

Jeff
