A Handyman Helping Hand

Basement walls

Posted By: Dan

I have a walk out basement with three block walls, and one six inch stud wall, with insulation. This wall is not drywalled and basement is not heated. Behind the insulation moisture is accumulating. Outside wall has Tyvek and vinyl siding. I wish to finish walls, but am not sure why moisture is accumulating. There is alot of ground moisture from an underground spring near far corner. However moisture is throughout entire 65 feet of wall. Do I need to heat the basement and/or visqueen over insulation?
