i am having a new home built in northwest ohio. i have collected a couple of quotes from general contractors to finish our basement. both quotes call for a vapor barrier (visquine?) between the new 2x4 wood studed walls and the existing concrete walls. i recently spoke with a fella who finished his basement and included a vapor barrier. this fella is confident, the condensation problem he has experienced is due to the vapor barrier. of course this news caused me concern.:eek: i am looking for direction. i plan on speaking with my contractor who i awarded the bid to very soon, definately before he begins his work.
