This energy saving video from Rockweiler Insulation explains the problem of moisture in an interior lower level wall ca
Sweating slab syndrome (SSS) is a phenomenon where moisture intermittently develops on the surface of an interior concrete slab. SSS can increase the slipperiness of the concrete surface and pose a serious risk to the safety of workers and material transport operations.
Step 4. Spray the outside walls of your home with a sealant that will help maintain a vapor barrier. The sealant will insulate the inner walls, and will prevent moisture from accumulating inside your home. This is particularly useful on the outer walls surrounding a basement.
Basement wall sweat/condensation problem-- will this work?? My foundation is block & built on a slope --1/2 is in the ground by 7'+-, the other 1/2 is walk out. In the summer there'd be water all along the seam where the wall met the floor & the wall seemed to be "weeping".
Condensation. Also called sweating, condensation shows up as water droplets, wet spots, or puddles on basement floors and walls. It happens when moist, warm air hits cool foundation walls or uninsulated cold-water pipes, dampening carpets, rusting appliances, and turning the basement clammy.
The basement was insulated with a layer of poly against the concrete and framing done about 2-3 inches off the wall. One layer of fiberglass batting is running horizontally and set in between the concrete/poly and the framing.
