I am looking at different wall sections for my new house. (Southern Ontario Canada)
What do people think of this idea that was posted on a polyurethane insulation web page?
“The best insulated brick house you can buy is one where the brick is laid a half inch away from the wood studs with no sheathing,” xxxx said. “You then spray polyurethane two inches thick onto the back side of the brick. The reason that I specify two inches rather than the inch and a quarter is that I want a little more grip on the brick and studs. Polyurethane sprayed in that manner ties the brick to the studs better than any brick ties you can nail to the studs.
“So, the wall literally becomes one piece,” xxxx concluded. “The brick — for the first time, because of the polyurethane — actually becomes its own total weather service. Now that’s a big benefit!”
Was wandering what would happen to any water that got thru the brick?
