If you’re new to home building, ceiling insulation installation isn’t likely to be the first project you tackle. Rather, it’s probably something that you look into more closely once you’ve decided you want to build. Most people don’t think about it until it’s already way too late to change anything, and they’re already worried about the moisture damage that may already be occurring. So what exactly should you expect on your ceiling insulation installation?
How to Do Ceiling Insulation Installation
The most important thing to remember about ceiling insulation installation is that it is very different than a typical attic ceiling insulation job. Non-discountable retail prices for attic ceiling insulation include: 15″ x 40′ non-bulk rubberized friction fit application for low-velocity, non-friction fit between wood framing and exterior wall sheathing. The best way to get a good idea of how much non-discountable retail price will be for a particular type of installation is to ask around or read product reviews from online vendors.
Generally, a cathedral ceiling will require two or three coats of low VOC low R-value silicone spray (not recommended for cathedral ceilings), with one coat applied over the top of the existing roofing and one above the existing roof framing and flashing. This spray is non-sticky and can provide years of effective use with no risk of peeling. Another important thing to keep in mind is that you will probably have to drill some holes in your ceilings and walls and maybe even replace a ceiling fan or two during your ceiling insulation installation. Even with sealant, there are still chances that moisture or leakage may occur. Make sure to address these issues as soon as possible before you seal the seams between your new ceiling and the old ceiling.
