Insulating under stairs


Hello,

Any advice on how or what to insulation in a rather large space behind shower wall? This space is under the landing for the stairs that go to the upstairs level. On one side, it does have an exterior wall. I live in Michigan and so can use all the insulation I can get.

Insulating under stairs


Exterior, above-grade walls can be insulated with a variety of products. Price and availability enter design. Find your location Zone; http://publicecodes.citation.com/ico...001_par001.htm

From the Zone, find your wall R-value requirements; http://publicecodes.citation.com/ico..._11_sec002.htm
