blown-in cellulose vs fiberglass in ceiling and walls
I know this question has been asked here before, so apologies for a sort of repeat.
I have 24 inch deep parallel chord trusses I was planning to fill with cellulose.
I called a contractor that does cellulose and fiberglass and they refused to do cellulose in this case because he said it has led to too many problems with drywallers and typically they are just not “proud” of their cellulose work.
I’ve had similar responses to cellulose from at least one other contractor so far. Not going so far as saying they won’t do it, but they did not recommend it.
I am a little concerned about the weight of cellulose in the ceiling vs fiberglass, I don’t know the numbers but it seems significant.
Is the primary benefit of cellulose how energy neutral it is? other than that it does seem like a pain to work with, lots of fine particles and very heavy and saggy in the walls.
Any opinions? Thanks
