Hello, I am in the process of finishing my basement, and am wondering if anyone can answer a few questions.
Some things that might help you give me some answers:
The wall does get damp at times of heavy rain, also with extremely heavy rain you can notice a glimmer of water on the block, although it doesnt cascade down the wall. I think I solved most of the problem by grading around the house and fixing the gutters. but still some moisture.
I plan on sealing the wall with the proper paint.
I am not adding heat and A/C.
I did not plan on insulating.
-What is a good distance to have a wall from the foundation?
-Should all the base plates of the walls be preasure treated?
-I do not plan on insulating,should I? If so how and what type is recomended?
I appreciate any and all the help you have to offer!
