Insulation


I recently purchased a 40 year old home. The walls have some fiberglass insulation but hard to tell how much. Is it possible to add insulation to existing walls ie blown-in over the fiberglass?

Insulation


Insulation can be blown in from the interior or the exterior. How you do it depends on your renovation list. This reqiures a fair amount of holes to be cut into the surface.
It would help if the person doing it had a thermal scanner to check for any missing sections.
