Kitchen and Living Room Installation


Hello,
I recently had a fire in my home and I am having the kitchen redone and the ceiling in my living room replace. The contractor that I hired put the dry wall up in the living room and in the kitchen without putting in installation. I asked him and he said that he was going to take down one piece of the dry wall and blow the installation in. So I said okay. But then this morning he sent a crew in to tape and mud the drywall. No he said he is going to go through the attic and blow the installation in. Should I be concerned about this contractor?

Kitchen and Living Room Installation


Blowing in insulation from the top down on the ceiling is fine.

Blowing insulation for and outside wall from the top down is a pain in the behind and not recommended.

FYI, you do not need insulation between interior walls from a energy efficiency standpoint.
