I'm replacing my daylight basement garage door with a person door which means framing inside a concrete opening.

I know to use a pressure treated sill plate and sill gasket on the floor. But what about against the walls? PT and gasket again?

    what does the building code say where you are? – Jasen Jan 21 at 11:02
  • Best reference I found was R317.1 of 2015icc code. By my reading it's not clear if studs against concrete must be PT. I can't find anything on sil gaskets, or using the between studs and walls – everett1992 Jan 21 at 21:55
