Ground unit insulation questions
I have a 3 flat house in Chicago which I recently just moved into the ground unit/basement. After starting the remodeling phase, we discovered some moisture issues on the flooring but we also took down 4 ft of drywall all around to ensure we seal any foundation cracks/leaks.
The house is built in 1902 and has siding wrapped. walls are have foundation and half siding……what is the best way to go about insulating and if need be put any kind of barrier for the moisture??
the previous owners used R-13 insulation with a paper face and also put a vapor barrier on top of it and then drywalled on top….assuming this only made things worse.
attached a pic, below line is the concrete foundation…..above is layers of siding over the many years.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated as there is a lot of info out there.
