inset vs. face stapling insulation
had a couple of contractor come over and give quotes for some drywall I need hung and finished. The last one asked that I staple all the instulation on the inside of the framing, rather than face stapling everything. Most articles I have found elsewhere, say that face stapling creates a better vapor barrier, and less chance of voids between the drywall and insulations.
Is the contractor just wanting an easier installation since the framing will be exposed, or is there a reason for this?
Also, is there any reason why insulation has jumped in price - other than winter is around the corner, and mfg just want to make more? From last month to this month, most everthing has gone up $5-15. Kraft faced R30 batts went from 40 to 52 (after rebates). Ironically unfaced R30 batts only went up 10 cents?
