Cape Cod attic insulation
Hello, my first question. I have a 1960 cape cod style house and I’m getting ready to put a new roof on with all new sheathing. I also wanted to improve my insulation to make my upstairs more comfortable and reduce or eliminate ice dams. I’ve had three insulation companies out for quotes and they all want to insulate the roof and create an unvented attic. I only have 2″x6″ rafters. Is this normally something people do with these old cape Cods? My budget for everything is only $20K so I can’t afford to do alot.
