Performance Evaluation of Retrofitted Solid Masonry Exterior Walls
65033

This research project includes the testing and assessment of the results of a preliminary performance evaluation of nine existing buildings which had recently undergone an insulation retrofit of their solid masonry walls. While the results of the computer modeling of both the original and the retrofit wall assemblies demonstrated conditions favourable to increasing the rate of condensation in the wall assemblies, a physical examination of the majority of the walls did not reveal evidence of deterioration. The report speculates that the insulating of the exterior solid masonry walls may not result in deterioration when the retrofit approach involves the installation of suitable air and vapour barrier.
