Brick wall

johndpa | Posted in General Questions on

I have an old brick wall above ground that can’t be waterproofed from the outside.  Wall is three brick wide and let’s moisture through from wicking/ vapor process.  Wall had batt insulation directly against brick wall which was creating condensation on insulation resulting in mold.  How can I prevent water moisture from building on materials that have potential to create mold. Home is located in PA for so cold winters and hot summers.
