Retrofit Wall Insulation Behind Stucco?
Hello, I recently had a home energy audit that revealed my 90 year old south Minneapolis home does not have any wall insulation in the exterior walls. This is insane to me. They recommended dense packed cellulose as a solution to the problem.
However, I see comments on this website about moisture building up and the consequences of a wet stud cavity. I am sure imperfections in the stucco lead to water in the stud cavity from time to time.
Who is right? Without pulling off the interior walls or exterior stucco, what is the best option for insulating my walls?
