is poly ok?


i asked this twice but have not received an answer. if i use alum. coil around my perimeter at grade level, i'm told the foundation grade plywood will rot it quickly. i do not have any felt, but i DO have a huge roll of heavy duty 50m poly (visqueen) if i use this between the two, am i ok?

The poly won't provide any benefit in my opinion.

since there seems to be no code to follow on this and no-one seems to know why i shouldn't, i guess i'll just use the poly and hope for the best.

sorry mighty mouse,,,I woner how long before the plastic breaks down and whammo,,,your redoing it. Old saying is If I dont have time or money to do it right the first time,,,how will the second time be any better??? I have en black paper that was just as good as NEW 50 years later,it doesnt break down. IF I had an old roll I would GIVE it to you. I have to buy some anyway,,how MUCH do you need??

Seriously,,,how much can a roll cost you?? how much does the aluminum cost you? Seems maybe the black paper is the cheapest part of the job. Find a neighbor with an OLD roll in the trusty dusty garage,,or garage sales. Advertise on your local Craigs list,its out there,just waiting for your arrival. When you see a roofing contractor someplace,,,ask how much a partial roll,left over,would cost you!! OR trade cleanup a bit for it. be well and look out for 'traps'!!

already had the alum. from auctions, (where i buy most of my supplies) but..... yeah, i love garage sales too. i usually ask them if they have any construction materials laying around they didn't want to lug out. that's how i got this stack of new/unused 3/4 plywood! (3 bucks a sheet x25 sheets!) also got a huge stack of 3/4" 4x8 underlayment the same way. a buck apiece!!!!
tnks for another good idea! i love this site! (oh, and you can call me DM, just don't call me late for cheese dip!)

Why are you using aluminum coil. What is it's purpose in your application?
