What is the code for a vapor barrier over the foundation and the the sill plate. Does the vapor barrier have to extend across the whole top of the foundation. I have seen vapor barrier only installed between the foundation and sill plate, but not between the brick and the still. This would not pass code!
I'd like to see what the code for Meclenburg county, or be able to read it for myself. Thanks.

Contact NC Building Code Enforcement Office:


Or contact them at their website:
NC Building Code Information

(There's a "send an email" link at the bottom left of the web site).

You may be told that this is determined case-by-case. It has been years since I've done anything residential, but I know that application of code may vary. Get the info from the horse's mouth.
