Basement Vapor barriers

Posted by Bill on February 1st, 1998 06:40 AM

There seems to be a difference of opinion, Contractors
and books say to put a poly vapor barrier against the
basement block wall, frame and insulate with a kraft
faced insulation, then drywall. Owens Corning and our
local gas and electric energy dept. say not to use the
poly vapor barrier because if moisture does get back
there it will be trapped and get musty. Please help me
make the right choice. The house is in NY winter and
summer climate.
