I ran across this today in a 16 year old house. All of the band boards were on sill plates, except for this 14 foot section. I know that a treated sill plate keeps the band board from rotting. There are shims underneath the band board so that it isn’t in direct contact with the masonry block. Is this OK? If not, what could I say is wrong with it? Thanks in advance.
Everything else was pretty much normal. There was sill plate throughout except for this one section. It’s unusual to see joists hangers here in production housing. Batt insulation is typically supported here with metal hangers. They look like a straight section of coat hanger and often fail over time.
