dampness on basement walls
I just finished taking off the old studs and insualtion from one wall in the basement. There was a small area that was damp. Couln't see any water other than a different colour on the cement blocks. I think this dampness came through the blocks near the outside downspout. I must tell you that the wall has been up for more than 30 years and the basement has always been dry. Besides working on the outside of the house with a sealer has anyone experienced an inside sealer for the cement walls such as RADON SEAL or some other similar product that has worked well. I know this may only be a band aid but I'm sure there are sealers out there now that do a pretty good job.
