I need lots of help. I just purchased a home with an unfinished basement. one wall has large cracks and bolts that had to be applied to straighten the wall. I am not aware of any leaks. I want to cover this eyesore with a stone veneer. Should I seal it and with what. should I insulate it with foam (East wall) I do plan on framing out the wall and running electric

2-should I seal it with what

As for the cracks if they are large cracks I just got done using a compound called fast plug made by UGL who makes Drylok, it actually worked on one crack that had water coming out of it. Dries very fast so if u use it follow directions. I then used Drylok and it seems to be holding back the moisture. Not sure on the veneer panels, if no moisture issues insulating shouldn't be a problem.

Good luck,
