Hi all - So I am reading through all these posts, And need to decide what to do with my basement walls rather quickly now, I am rebuilding my house from the basement up. I Also need to insulate my basement to bring into the envelope.
So - its concrete block basement, Full height. Walk out in the front, about 6 ft under in the back. I really do not get any water in there. There was a point where very little water was seeping in - not even pooling - just heavy dampness, this was when i also had standing water outside the wall - this is all remediated now - I have not see this for months at this point
The walls have not been treated in many many years ( well before I bought it) and they are in pretty good shape. There is some flaky paint, and some mild mortar crumbling in places - I don't feel its that bad.
So from my research - I have figured that i should do it as follows. This diagram is from building science.com
A couple of questions -
Instead of Icyene on the walls - can i just pin on some Rigid Board (1.5-2 inch)?
I would spray the Rim Joists - with a DIY Kit (Am doing all of the house with this)
Do i need a Vapour barier inside the Rigid board - or just bang it straight on to wall?
Should I coat the walls with Drylock first before the Insulation?
Finally - on the floor - on top of the insulation - can I just lay a wood floor (2*3 and Plywood). I really do not want/need concrete
Thanks for you help - I need to start on this next weekend
