Putting insulation in a wall that has none
Just moved into a new (to me) home in Southern California. A single family house, built 1965. I’m relatively new to DIY home improvements but fairly ambitious. I decided to work on upgrading a bathroom and started by tearing down the tub/shower wall in an upstairs bathroom. I got everything out to the bare studs and noticed there is no insulation. I see a thin black paper-like material that is breaking apart and behind that is (what I think) is concrete, then it must be the exterior stucco or something. So, before I build the wall back up, can/should I put insulation in this wall? Or is there a reason it has no insulation? Thanks for the feedback!
