Finished cathedral ceiling insulation options
Our den is extremely cold and have discovered that the roof has no insulation. Very thin bat insulation exists on the ceiling itself. This we found out when handyman took a look through one of the high hats.
Considering blown cellulose insulation so we don't destroy the Sheetrock, but I am concerned that its particles will come out thru the high hats and ceiling fan and will breath them. No estimate.
Got an estimate -$2,600 to take down one side of the Sheetrock panels and open a hole on the other side to place bat insulation on roof and replace existing insulation with a thicker one. (One side has space to work with, the other side doesn't).
Considering health vs practically tearing the ceiling, which one do the experts recommend?
