adding Insulation to finished basement
i recently moved into a house with a finished walk-out basement. It's a good job, that looks like it was done by a pro.
It's been cold down there all winter, but we just figured, it's a basement, there is no getting around that
recently we had some kids playing down there, and a during some rough housing they put a hole in the drywall. I was VERY suprised to find out that there is no insulation in the walls. I cut a hole low on another wall and confirmed that this wall isn't insulated either
the walls are framed with 2 x 4's and there is plastic barrier, but no insulation!
The basement has drop ceiling, so I am wondering if i can just blow in some insulation from above the dry wall ? I have never done any insulation this way, so have no idea if it will work or not without making a big mess. if anyone has other suggestions i'd love to hear them. I'd like to do something down there other than just crank up the electric baseboard ($$$$)
is something i can get anywhere? do depot and lowes sell the stuff,? rent the machine?
will this be a messy job? I have to do it, just wondering what i am in for
