basement insulation

Posted by tom on November 16th, 2000 01:06 PM

I just installed r-19 between my 2x4 studs in my below grade basement. I used 6.5" deep because I set the stud wall about 8 inches from the block foundation to allow for a septic drain to run the perimeter of my basement. Question: I used batts with a paper facing, stapled to the studs. Do I still need a plastic vapor barrier or will the paper facing suffice. Thanks-
