Question

Vaulted celing - replace insulation


I have read the pros and cons on vaulted ceilings. we have had vents in the roof cause of the moisture seeped into the laundry room. I really need to replace the insulation but there is no room to do it. What do you suggest and what is up to code and will keep the house warm??
Thanks

Vaulted celing - replace insulation


I'm not clear on exactly what is going on. Where'd the water come from, exactly? What type of insulation do you have, and why are you replacing it? How much room do you have for insulation? How are you going to access the insulation; from inside? Greenbuildingadvisor.com has a blog on "how to insulate a cathedral ceiling" ( or similar title) that my be of interest. Spray foam may be an option for you.
