Air barrier on top of Roxul insulation
From everything I read, I need an air barrier on top of the roxul insulation we have in a vented attic space we are renovating. I put the roxul down and am struggling to find a cheap, easy way to create an air barrier without causing moisture issues.
I'd love to buy some rigid foam to help the Rvalue, but am worried about creating a moisture issue.
Tyvek is expensive
Are any of these cheap ideas viable?
I had been thinking of going to an appliance store and begging for free sheets of cardboard, but never got around to it.
I bought the red paper which goes under flooring, but it doesn't seem durable.
I have a few pieces of sheetrock (with some mold spots on them because they were in a workshop) I am ready to put at the curb, along with several old doors.
Any thoughts would be appreciated...
This is a dormer area and there might be alot of air movement to get to the baffles under the cathdral ceiling in the neighboring roof on it's way to the ridge.
