Hi, I have recently purchased a home in Toronto. We had some water issues and I've opened up the walls where I found some mould to see that the previous owners installed batt insulation directly onto the concrete wall and didnt have a vapour barrier. I've also noticed my joists are embeded into the wall. How would I properly insulate my basement wall and the embeded floor joists? Right now the home has roxul insulation in the ceiling space as sound proofing and the roxul/batt insulation is in the ceiling space right up against the exterior wall.
What is the best way to insulate embedded joists in a basement Montreal Home?
