Description

Fact or myth? Interior insulation in solid masonry walls leads to the deterioration by moisture damage and freeze-thaw cycles.

This study explores the issue. It assesses in-service performance of solid masonry residential buildings retrofitted with interior insulation. Inspections happened shortly after the retrofit and then more than ten years later. This provided an opportunity to determine if there was any link between the retrofits and the observed performance of the walls over time.

This report is part of the Research Insight series.
