OK, so a number of you have helped me out on the recent basement flood: http://www.askmehelpdesk.com/plumbin...-242374-3.html Many thanks! My solutions to avoid the rain flooding are to re-grade the outside and sink a few drywells connected to downspouts.

Meanwhile, the basement has bloomed some mold, but we wanted to finish the basement. I plan to pull back the drywall to fix it. (The basement is currently partially finished.)

Since I want to re-finish the wall properly, HOW DO I SEAL MY BASEMENT WALLS SO THAT THEY NEVER GET MOLD DAMAGE AGAIN?

I have some ideas, including: Drylok-ing the cinder block walls; vapor barrier-ing my new framing; stiff foam insulation; fiberglass insulation; 1/2" space below the new drywall for air circulation. (By the way, we are *not* concerned about temperature or heat loss down there.)

Does anyone have a reasonable approach for re-finishing the basement walls so that moisture condensing through the cinder block does not cause mold?

Thanks,
Justin
