Insulating and Detailing Structural Clay Tile Exterior Walls
I am an architect designing an addition and renovation of a stately home in Brookline, MA constructed ca 1910 of structural clay tile. The exterior is stucco applied directly to the tile, and the interior is plaster, also applied directly. There is no insulation, and the client wishes to add some as a part of this project. Structural clay is too brittle to puncture with fasteners. I have already decided that it is better, for several reasons, to add rigid to the exterior and attach that directly to the masonry, and stucco over that. I am looking for some advice as to the best way to detail this assembly. TIA!
