I’m going to be finishing a basement and could use a few questions answered. It is about three years old , poured walls, 8″ thick. Ten ft. high…..Two ft is above grade. I’ve been set up and working in there for about a year through all kind of weather and no leaks or dampness at all. The rest of the home is done and now I’m ready to stud up and drywall the basement.
The outside was insulated sealed and frenched drained. Radiant heat in poured floor.
My questions…..Do I need to put in a vapor barrier and what kind ??? Steel studs or wood???? Any special techniques or tips would be great.
All the rest of the work I’ve done in the home has been top notch…I don’t want to screw up the basement. Its going to be used as a TV room/ 2nd living room.
Any help would be great ….Thanks guys
