I recently installed a french drain at the footer of my foundation. I would like to raise the grade around the house to direct rainwater away. I have two questions.
1) my grading will start anfew inches above the foam insulation board. Do I need to tar the bare foundation in that areea for a few inches of soil?
2) I realize it may not do much.. but its not going to hurt to caulk the gap where the foam insulation board meets the Foundation. Whould silicon or a tube of roofers friend work better?
