I am going to finish my basement. I have poured concrete walls with no water problems
for 10 years.
Do I Drylock the walls and use regular insulation possibly creating mold/mildew
trapping or just stud up and drywall as
insulation to allow the conditions to be the
same. I just dont want the basement to be cold in the winter after spending money to finish it.
Anytime you cover a wall, whether you use drylock or not, you run the risk of creating an environment for mold to flourish if moisture and organic matter is present. The Owens system is good because it can be removed for inspection. Since the product has not been around for a long time, I cannot comment on longevity. It reminds me of the solar panels back in the 80's...warped after 5 years...who knew.
