This is important if you want to completely turn your basement into a living space. Two wall types are common in most basements. One is the concrete wall, the other is a stud wall. Inspect your walls for moisture content or leaks that may be coming from outside. Use your moisture meter to check. Concrete walls that have moisture problems need to be sealed. Products can be purchased at your local hardware store. Put on all protective gear. Apply your concrete wall sealer with your wide-bristled brushes or coarse roller inserts.
