Exposed exterior studs in foundation concrete
gganahl

I have wood studs exposed on the exterior of my home's poured concrete foundation. I am not sure if they were part of the forms - I have to check to see whether they run all the way through to the interior.

What do I use to seal them to prevent rot? A couple of them show signs of rot.

We live in Indiana, and get a fair amount of snow some years, humid weather in the summer.

A friend whose family business was contracting told me I need to get them sealed ASAP, and that it is poor construction - I really don't know.

Thanks!

Nobody around here can recommend or suggest anything without a physical, on spot inspection. We might be able to suggest something after looking at clear pictures.

Load your pictures on to a host, like photobucket, then give us the link.
