Cedar tongue and groove on walls – Remove or not?
Some contractors have recommended that we take off the drywall and remove the tongue and groove cedar under the drywall (some of the drywall is rotten/black mold) to lay in insulation and put in a vapor barrier. But we are wondering if it would be better to leave the cedar in place and blow-in insulation and then just patch-fix the drywall. We are also replacing windows during this process, and the house is empty.
WE LIVE ON THE OREGON COAST AND THERE IS A LOT OF MOISTURE
What should we do?
