Wall Assembly Retrofit and Sound Attenuation
When we bought our home 3 years ago it was done by a cheap builder. We are starting to see the issues where they cut corners. With that being said coupled with this we are trying to fix our settling issues. We live in the Pueblo, CO area and another issue is sound within the home. I can hear everything outside, we hear the highway, etc.. I want to rip the drywall out minus the drywall for the attic and start over using rockwool in par to help with the sound. With this being said, I know rockwool comes unfaced and dries and resumes its qualities. With that being said, will I need some sort of vapor barrier with it? I plan on sealing the internal stud cavities as well however, I’m not sure with what. Our exterior is stucco.
