Adding more insulation to damp-spray cellulose?
I've got an old pier and beam house with stucco skirting and about 1-2" of damp spray cellulose over the subfloor and joists. I was thinking that rather than deal with the complexity of keeping the closed crawlspace and conditioning or dehumidifying, that I'd take it off and add more insulation. I can't figure whether I can spray more (damp) cellulose, or whether I should just put foil afced foam over the bottom of the joists, or remove (?) the cellulose and replace with closed cell spray foam. I'm in Austin, TX - hot & humid, zone 2A
