Basement Insullation - More questions


I have 2X4's installed an inch from the walls in my basement and I am in the process of researching insulation. I have 2 concerns. My research tells me that fiberglass batts will mold and Closed Cell spray foam will off gas. Is this my only option is to decide that lesser of 2 evils? If I dont insulate my basement will I get mold on the drywall? It just seems that because the contractor did not use XPS first that I do not have alot of options. Any help would be appreciated?

Basement Insullation - More questions


I have gotten a good price for closed cell spray foam that I am leaning towards. I believe it is BASF comfort foam. Whenever I am close to pulling to trigger, I decide to Google it one last time and read about all of these horror stories. Anyone have any success stories with spray foam?

My wife wanted a pool or a finished basement. I am really thinking the pool would have been less hassle.
