Re: Foam Insulate All Basement Walls?


Make sure to use faced rigid foam against the mason walls...regardless of water proofing there will still be vapor. If the foam is faced then you can use 2 x 4 insulation and it shouldn't get wet/mold unless you have a plumbing event...combining the insulation will increase the r value as well...
