Insulation and kerdi board
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi everyone, I'm about to start putting up kerdi board in my shower stall. I want to do the ceiling first but I have blown insulation being held up by some poly up there (2nd floor shower). Because k-board has/is a vapour barrier how would you suggest I address this? Remove poly and replace with some batts ten kerdi board? Or remove poly and insulation entirely?

Hi,

I think you should be fine as is cuz the other side of the barrier is not a cold wall. But vapor barriers are very confusing and recommendations vary depending on the area and weather conditions. Check with your local building department.

I guess the insulation is there to soften noises?
