outside insulation


We have enclosed our deck into a glassed in porch but the underside of the floor is exposed to the weather. What do we insulate with?

Probably the easiest way would be to have it sprayed with closed cell foam and then paint it with a UV protector (assuming light can get to it). If you use fiberglass you will just be making a great nest for critters unless you put plywood or some other material over it.

Spray foam or sealed up rigid foam.

Welcome to the forum! Is the deck designed for the concentrated glass load? What R-value is called out on the deck/living space conversion plans?
