Vaulted ceiling with tongue-and-groove boards only
New home, zone 6. Vaulted ceiling in family room (4/12), R60 blown in fiberglass, MemBrain throughout (walls and ceiling) sealed with tape and that “goopy” stuff at top and bottom plate, wall junctions, etc.
I was originally going to have the vault sheet-rocked when they did the rest of the ceilings, but talking with my contractor, he said that the ceiling was completely sealed with MemBrain, so if we were very careful not to puncture the MemBrain when installing tongue and groove, we would not need to have sheet rock under the wood tongue and groove. I trust him not to puncture the MemBrain (he has been GREAT to work with), but I don’t want to regret not sheet-rocking.
