I am thinking about having waterguard installed in my basement. However, i plan on using studs and drywall. My concern is if it will be ok to nail in the 2x4's alonh where the waterguard was installed? I am nervous that by nailing the wood into the cement, it would either punture the waterguard or the nail will just go into the crushed stone possibly making future water problems. I am assuming when the trench is filled, it will be only an inch or 2 of cement instead of the 4 inch that was originally there. Pls advise or if there are other ways to finish a basement.

jbmadison,

The preferred method of putting the studs on the floor is to use a product like Liquid Nails rather than nailing into the concrete.
