when framing the walls on a basement the way i was taught 1) vis queen or vapor barrier 2) studs 3) insul 4) Sheetrock . i was just told now it is studs,insul,vapor barrier then rock which one is correct ??? thank you
I would call your local inspector and ask what he wants to see. I've seen inspectors say plastic on the foundation wall, plastic behind the drywall over the insulation (normal way), or no vapor barrier at all.
Some advice you receive on the internet can be worth exactly what you paid for it - be careful.
Calling the inspector isn't a bad idea to determine local requirements.
Personally, I wouldn't even consider putting plastic in the wall. That was a great idea in the 1980's and 90's and today a lot of people are finding fault in that method. If you're insulating the wall, the kraft paper facing on the insulation is an effective vapor barrier. Letting the wall breathe isn't a bad idea and can help reduce mold-related issues and an impermeable membrane like plastic can lead to mold.
