Internal Insulation of Masonry Walls
I am renovating an Brick Home in Toronto. The exterior walls are Load bearing brick walls with some parging, furring, and plaster board. I want to add insulation on the interior using the wall assembly described on page 24 of the pdf guide "Internal Insulation of Masonry Walls: Final Measure Guideline" see below for URL. I have a question about this assembly... I noticed that there is no vapour retarder, should I install a vapour retarder on the warm side of the insulation between the insulation and the wood studs?
Also, would you recommend that I fully remove the existing furring and plaster board before added the new insulation assembly?
Thanks for any help.
