It should be placed on the side of the insulation closest to the interior since the hotter more humid air inside contains the moisture that is trying to work its way into the wall.<br />
  59. 59. Waterproofing<br />Waterproofing- material placed to resist the penetration of water in a structure, in this case a foundation. The type pictured is liquid applied spray-on. <br />
