Acoustic sealant between studs and concrete?
I've learned that lumber and concrete floors are not perfectly straight.
1) When building 4-ft wall sections and assembling them together, should i put acoustical sealant between the vertical studs of each adjoining wall section? I try to pick the straightest studs for the ends, but there's frequently some tiny gap.
2) Should acoustical sealant be placed between the horizontal lumber of the wall sections and the concrete floor?
The discussions on this forum consistently address sealing between the drywall and the floor.
I anticipate that putting the sealant between the concrete and the lumber is a good idea. Using USG Sheetrock Acoustical Sealant.
