THAN THE DEPTH OF LOCAL FROST PENETRATION.
FOOTINGS MUST BE ACCURATELY POSITIONED AND
ROUGHLY LEVEL. FOOTINGS VARY IN SIZE & DEPTH
DEPENDING ON THE ALLOWABLE SOIL PRESSURE AND
THE LOAD. THE BOTTOM OF THE FOOTING IS ALWAYS
PLACED ON UNDISTURBED SOIL OR COMPACTED
GRANULAR FILL WITH EACH RUN LEVEL.
WATERPROOFING: CONCRETE WALLS BELOW GRADE
SHOULD BE WATERPROOFED WITH A NON-TOXIC
ELASTOMERIC MATERIAL APPLIED ON THE EXTERIOR
SURFACE FROM THE FOOTINGS TO THE FINISHED
GRADE LINE, TO MAKE THE WALL WATERTIGHT
AGAINST ORDINARY SEEPAGE THAT MAY OCCUR.
FRAMING: PRIOR TO SILL PLATE INSTALLATION,
INSPECT CONCRETE WORK CONDITION AND COMPARE
ALL SITE DIMENSIONS WITH FOUNDATION PLAN
DIMENSIONS.
SILL ANCHOR: THE SILL PLATE SHOULD BE LEVELED
CAREFULLY. IF THE TOP OF THE FOUNDATION IS
LEVEL, THE SILL PLATE MAY BE LAID ON FOUNDATION
WITH A CLOSED CELL FOAM GASKET OR OTHER AIRIMPERMEABLE MATERIAL IN BETWEEN, AND OF SAME
WIDTH AS SILL PLATE. SILL PLATES SHOULD BE
PRESSURE TREATED 2x MATERIAL DF #2 OR BETTER
& ANCHORED TO CONCRETE WALL WITH 5/8" ANCHOR
BOLTS EMBEDDED 7" MIN. IN CONCRETE & 2" MIN.
