Drywall +insulation

Post by mbrini » Thu Sep 19, 2019 6:15 am

Hi ,
Found this drywall sheets fixed on the non foundation part of my wall (bricks from outside)
I will install rigid insulation (1'') on that wall
Should i remove these drywall sheets and replace them with plywood, or i can leave them and continue my insulation process ( rigid foam + roxwool r14)

I would remove it first , there is likely mould and mildew on that old drywall for sure.

Remove them.
