CMU sealing- architectural question

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Is it typical to chemically seal the face of split face block (obviously exposed) in the Midwestern USA (Iowa to be exact)?

 

Is this wall section typical for masonry:

Split face CMU

2-1/2” mtl stud with fiberglass insulation in between, paper side towards interior

Layer of plastic moisture barrier over top of that, followed by gyp board

 

Thanks,
