Insulating brick building
So, I am aware of the importance of providing a ventilation gap between reservoir claddings (such as stone or stucco) and the rest of the structure, because of inward vapour drive.
Let´s assume I have an old brick wall that I will insulate from the inside. I place a frame wall on the interior side and put some batt insulation on that. Closing with drywall.
Will I have the same problem with inward vapour drive? There is a lot of talk about reservoir claddings, but how about reservoir structures?
Thank you in advance
