"Drylok" paint considered a form of vapor barrier?

Posted by Brian K. on August 14th, 2000 08:52 PM

As a followup question to an earlier post- The "Insulator recommended the use of a vapor barrier to both the foundation wall up to the grade level aswell as a vb b/tween the wallboard and insulation. His point was that any residual water vapors should be able to escape thru the portion of foundation above grade (warmer surface) as well as wood framing area of the basement. I asked about adding a few vents (2"-3")or if a 1"-2" airspace maintained around the finished area that was open to the unfinished section of the basement would be sufficient to prevent excess dampness build up, mold and mildew.
