My house has the same black coating on the outside of the concrete foundation. I assumed (for better or worse) that the coating was a vapor barrier and I put up a typical stud and fiberglass insulation and drywall wall against the foundation with no additional vapor barrier.
The inspector saw the lack of a vapor barrier on the inside and gave it a passing grade.
I just hope that any moisture that got through the drywall and insulation and condensed against or inside the concrete in winter will evaporate in the summer.
Tornado victims: Do not rush to rebuild. Take your time and look for and get a good contractor. Or consider selling the property and moving to a home that is ready to live in.
But AllanJ, the inspector could have seen the black coating outside, noted that it was a waterproofing membrane, and then saw your drywall on the inside and noted that that was a vapour retarder, so he passed it, no?
What do you assume now about your black stuff?
