I bought a house that has fiberglass insulation on the floor joists on the basement ceiling. Lately we have had a heavy mildew smell and I have noticed the paper on the insulation seems moist. Should there be insulation on the ceiling ? The finished side of the basement with a drop ceiling doesn`t seem to have that problem.

Thanks steve

I hate to tell you this, but if your ceiling insulation is damp and has mildew, you have a leak. Pull off the insulation that is damp, and start investigating. You have a leaky pipe. Yes, most basement ceilings do have insulation between the floor joists.
