I've recently had to remove existing drywall and insulation in my condo in Ontario. Notwithstanding the place being built 86, what was put in place was creative at best. Removing the wall revealed compressed fiberglass screwed to the wall, held in place with a piece of U-track and finally squeezed into place with foil backed drywall ( No vapor barrier in place.)
I asked myself 2 questions
1) Was this to code.. ever.. ? 2) Is there a better way ?!?!
I was thinking of:
a) Gluing 2-inch Durafoam to the concrete. b) Putting in the proper framing. c) Adding 3.5-inch fiberglass batt. d) Adding a vapor barrier. f) Drywalling on top of all this.
Am I out to lunch? Feel free to make fun of me if I am. Is my method off base? I've been reading stuff about double vapor barriers being bad because there is a cement wall etc.
