Continuous Exterior Insulation and Brick Veneer in Retrofit
I am currently going through the stages of redoing the siding and windows on a 1984 built house in Climate Zone 5B. I plan on using continuous exterior insulation, the problem I am having is that we have a section of brick veneer that is the exterior for only a portion of the house(1 room and some partial walls in other rooms.) If I do the continuous insulation on the majority of the house, what can I do about the brick veneer? Is Dense pack cellulose a good option because I can’t easily retrofit in rigid insulation without tearing down the interior walls? Currently they are 2×4 walls with R-13 fiberglass batts.
