I reside in Upstate NY in a 1980s center hall colonial with slanted walls on on the 2nd floor. I am having some ventilation problems because the slanted walls are stuffed with insulation and are covering the soffit vents. I am able to remove the insulation with a rake and powerful shop vac from the attic. The slanted ceiling are about 4 ft in length so it is difficult removing the insulation for ventilation. I had to extend the rake and used additional hose extensions to get the shop vac and rake to reach the soffit from in the attic. Now that the area is clear I need to replace the insulation but because of the length it is impossible to insulate properly. A contractor wants to rip down the ceiling and slanted wall to correct the problem by replacing the foam roofing baffles and insulate properly and re-sheetrock. The roof is 10 years old and in good shape so I do not want to rip off the roof either. I know going from the inside is the proper way to do it but by doing so we are talking about 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Our house will be in shambles as all the furniture has to be moved. The rafters are 2x6 and if their is a way for me to insulate from in the attic it would probably save my marriage and the sanity for everyone else in the house if I can avoid disputing them. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
