Insulating a Perfectly Good Ceiling
I'm partitioning off a corner of my finished basement to build a wine cellar, but I'm not sure what to do about ceiling insulation.
The basement ceiling right now is perfect. It was done in 2003 and is a sheetrocked "knockdown" textured ceiling. When the insulated partition wall goes up, I'll need to insulate the ceiling. What do I do?
1. Tear out the sheetrocked ceiling inside the cellar, insulate between floor joists and re-sheetrock.
Is #1 my only choice?? I think it is especially because I'd like a nice, normal ceiling and not just pink foam glued up there.
you could FURRDOWN the ceiling. This would eliminate demolition and mess, but not minimize construction work.
Or maybe the ceiling is already adequately insulated? Just a thought
Go for #1; you won't "know" until you do.
And who likes not knowing?
