Hey shoots, he scores, sores that is. Look at the sores on this wall of insulation and back and behind here when you are note, the culprit the ball from playing tennis, from playing well maybe indoor baseball or hockey and shooting at the wall putting fractures in that vapor barrier.
This is what you need, an approved vapor barrier polyethylene. Now, always ask for the approved product because there is lots of them out there, this is a six millets already been treated for ultraviolet inhibitors. Also, when I do staple it up to patch the wall, I am going to tape all my seams with a weather actually, let us say a moisture barrier or a weather proof tape to make sure it is moisture sealed.
Okay, I am just trimming along the top of the wall because it is not necessary to put the polyethylene down over the concrete at this time. Only if you are planning on doing development on the basement and that is a whole new process. This is just replacing what is already there and damaged.
There we have it, the staple along the stud there now with those galvanize staples. Staples are actually seal themselves with the polyethylene. Therefore, there is no moisture or whatsoever going to get back into the sheeting area, condensing eroding problem. So, sealing it all, making it air tight as well as moisture barrier tight and giving you good insulation energy efficient well or an incidentally.
If the children are going to play down stairs, play hockey or tennis, put up some plywood back sheets that way they will not damage the wall or whatsoever.
