I just moved into a bi-level house. I live in Northern Ontario where the winters can drop below 30 degrees celsius and with windchill even below 40 degrees celsius. Anyway, the basement is 40% above ground and where the cement usually would show, it has been sprayed with that expanding insulation and covered in wood. The home inspector told me to remove it so that the cement could breath and another person told me to leave it. Confused!!!! I have no idea when it was insulated but I do not think it was done when the house was built. The house is 21 years old. What do you think?

Yes it is a finished basement. I have no idea what is behind the drywall or panel board.
