Should I dense pack my attic ceiling? Pros adn Cons?
I need to re-roof my entire house including removing all of the sheathing.
I see this as an opportunity to re-insulate an attic bedroom.
One contractor recommends (he has great references) to re-roof and then use dense-pack cellulose to fill the void between the sheathing and attic ceiling with cellulose. I like the idea – it seems to maximize the r-value.
Should I be concerned about moisture?
I am wondering about doing this without an ariway to vent the space between the sheathing and the attic ceiling.
I’d apreciate any thoughts or other cost-effective options I should consider.
