Got cellulose insulation, how to fix the interior holes?
They drilled two holes and loose filled it (i know, it should be dense packed). The holes are 2 inches wide, and plugged with styrofoam discs about 1in thick. Some are reasonably tight, some are loose. What is a good way to fix this, if i drywall compound and paint many of these will move over time. I was thinking of using a few cans of spray foam, cutting flush with a painting razor and painting. Would this work well, or do i need to sand and plaster before painting or is there a better way?
Also i would like to dense pack someday, it would be nice to reuse the drilled holes, would a new hole be wider then 2 in. I have no basement headers, the cellulose goes to the bottom of the wood framing in the basement (balloon framing), i could conceivably remove those panels (screwed in), use something temporarily, let them dense pack up to the base of the attic (there are top plates) and replace (and caulk for air tightness).
Thanks in advance for your advice
