What bonding agent for cement over flashing ?


Put this egress window in basement. Installed in a hole I cut in concrete block. I flashed with Protecto self adhesive flashing. How can I skim coat over this flashing? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

That stuff is pretty smooth for cement to stick to. I think I would trim it out with pressure treated deck board. Looks like your foundation has been painted already. That might cause some trouble too.

Poles right, not going to stick.
I'd use 1 X 6 vinyl lumber instead of the deck boards though, deck boards are not below grade rated and you would have to wait about 6 months for them to dry out.
You can attach them with Tap-Con screws.
You are going to add a window well, right?

These guys both nailed it.

Nothing is going to stick to that protecto wrap in terms of anything masonry.

Wrap it with PVC lumber and be done with it.
