Excellent condition poured concrete basement wall that is 42 years old.
Moderate dampness basement. Winter 5 months a year here so about 15
freeze-thaw cycles (Ontario Canada).
I have a preexisting partial studded frame in place built by the previous
owners that I want to continue along the length of the basement wall plus
reinsulate and drywall.. There is lots of plumbing rough-in place so I want
to avoid tearing down the part of the frame that is in place.
I am thinking of scraping off the crappy latex type concrete paint they
previous owners put up and coating it with a alkyd masonry paint. Then I
thought about running Tyvek or some other breathable membrane between the
studs and freshly painted concrete, putting in new batts of fibreglass
insulation, then run a polytarp membrane then screwing up the drywall.
With this method what will I need to consider down the road to minimize
moisture and mildew damage. This particular stretch of basement wall is
shared in the same place as the furnance/blower/coldair return room.
Does anyone else have any idea or expierence to share with me?
