Sill Insulation


Hello

I've got some Rigid Polyisocyanurate Foil Faced Foam Board and want to use it to insulate our sill in the basement. My plan is to use construciton adhesive to seal blocks of the foam board right to the wood of the sill. I know the foil serves as a vapr barrier so is there any problem in putting this right against the wood?

Thanks
Brian

Nope.

Sealing is important as air can in/out there...
