Basement Finishing

I'm trying to finish my basement and plan to use Metal Studs. Can anyone recommend a dealer in the Plymouth area. Both Lowes and HD are no longer stocking them? Also, I planned to use DryLok to seal the foundation (poured concrete) but some tell me that this prevent the concrete from breathing and can cause failure? That seems extreme but I dont want to create other problems. I also plan to use rigid foam board Insl. so I dont know if sealing the foundation is necessary. Any advice.

Re: Basement Finishing

If you use metal studs you have to ensure that special grommets are used in the cutouts or holes if you run regular Romex type electrical wiring .... otherwise use Bx cable.
