Canada and fiberglass


Nearly every insulation contractor I sell equipment to in Canada uses fiberglass. Anyone know why cellulose is not as popular up there?

I prefer mineral-wool myself. Cellulose is basically bio-degradable. I know they put chemicals in it.
Mineral-wool is rock --- can't get much tougher than that. Not going to settle. No fear of water. More air resistant than fiberglass.

Probably easier to install a poly vapor barrier over FG without disturbing it as well.
