Exterior Insulation Options
I live in southwest Nebraska. Going to be tearing out old lath and plaster walls...which have some form of insulation (unsure at this time), and old wiring. I will be installing new wiring first, and then working on insulation. As of now, locally I have options of fiberglass bats with one side of paper backing, offering up to R-13 value. The other option is blowing in cellulose. However, I am not sure which insulation is going to be better?
I want to consider future proofing this job too. But first I am not sure how the blow in process would work if there is no drywall. I'm guessing some form of netting. Is there a specific product for this?
Is cellulose going to offer better insulation? (I know it's neater around pipes and wiring...but harder to do with firewalls if I decide to put them in)
My understanding is that cellulose settles over time. In 20-30 years from now I still want good insulation. Will Cellulose eventually become less R value than the current fiberglass that supposedly does not settle?
Just unsure of what is the better option...I welcome all opinions. Thanks.
use ROXUL. it is cost effective, easy to work with and works quit well.
What do you mean by future proofing?
