Another question regarding “Monitoring Moisture Levels in Double-Stud Walls”
So after reading Monitoring Moisture Levels in Double Stud Walls… I am in search of a solution for our double stud walls that are just about ready for insulation. We were planning on filling the 12″ cavity with blown cellulose. But that has obvious and now understood issues with moisture and settling we didn’t know about. So what to do with my walls? Our insulator suggests closed cell applied 4″ R 28 and dense pack cellulose 8″ R 28.8. This will still result in a plywood that gets wet and dries but at least we will know the dew point stay on the outside , right ? Thoughts ?
