  • Plastic vapor barrier on basement walls?

    I have block walls. I have covered the walls with a plastic barrier before framing and insulation. Did I do the installation properly ?

    Thank you for your question. There are conflicting opinions concerning vapor barriers. Should the wall be allowed to breathe? In many cases using a closed cell foam insulation or plastic sheeting can do both. Never use the standard fiber glass insulation.
