insulation


I have a metal roof that is on top of plywood, do i have to worry about sweating?

I bought a house with a room addition already added but the previous owner did not put house wrap on, how can I fix this without rebuilding the structure? The inside walls are not finished(no insulation or drywall yet)

I cannot afford spray foam insulation.

Re: insulation


Got some pictures?
Is there siding already on? If so what type?
Not having house wrap or at least tar paper under any siding is a huge mistake.
It helps to seal air leaks and acts as a drain plain behind the siding.
Without it your far more likely to have sheathing damage and mold.

There is no siding on yet and it will be next year before it is installed. I need to move in soon.

Re: insulation


could I put on the house wrap for this winter and do the siding next year? I could staple the wrap more than normal so it would hold.
