I own a cinderblock house from the 1960’s in eastern North Carolina. The house was damaged by a hurricane and has been gutted down to bare studs. The exterior cinderblock walls have 1” furring strips installed and there is no vapor barrier or insulation installed at this time. My plan was to add 2” inch lumber to the existing furring strips and use foam (closed cell) insulation but I wanted to get advice from the forum before proceeding.
What do you recommend for the type insulation and vapor barrier for a house located in a flood prone area?
Where should the vapor barrier be installed in my region with masonry construction?
