Our architect and structural engineer have specified a 9 1/4" SIP floor for the 1st floor. Since we will be building in a flood zone, our foundation will be an open design with concrete columns extending from a mat foundation. Horizontal beams will sit on top of the columns and the SIP panels will sit on top of the beams.

In one particular location, the insulation contractors were called back to redo an area that was not covered. When it got cold outside, I noticed that the ceiling in that area was noticeably colder than in other areas. Suspecting that the insulation contractor didn't actually fix it, the builder and I went to the attic today to check. They had attempted a fix. Instead of putting cellulose in the problem area, they had installed fiberglass batts. The batts looked to be about the same thickness as the cellulose.</p> <p><a href="http://www.greenbuildingadvisor.com/community/forum/general-questions/99911/fiberglass-and-cellulose-performing-differently-attic" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.greenbuildingadvisor.com/community/forum/general-questions/99911/fiberglass-and-cellulose-performing-differently-attic#comments General questions Tue, 17 Jan 2017 22:34:26 +0000 rbaldwin 99911 at http://www.greenbuildingadvisor.com
