- Insulating An Existing Garage Wall
I am in the process of turning an existing garage into a habitable room.
The garage currently has a single skin brick/ block external wall, this will be timber lined and insulated on the inside face. My query is, should I fix a breather membrane directly onto the inside face of the existing brick wall before fixing the timber framing, or is this not necessary? An alternative is to apply a liquid waterproof coating to the inside face. Or nothing.
Thanks for any help.Posted 1 month agostumpyjonSubscriber
Andy, dpc, damp proof course, auto correct!. I ground out the mortar on the inside of the wall, slipped in a double width dpc and mortared it in. I then then brought the polythene down and folded the dpc up over the polythene. That way any water that penetrated the brick ran down to the dpc and hopefully back out rather than pooling on the floor.Posted 1 month ago
