  • When you have to add insulation later its a dirty mess. They have to take the the wall back to the wood studs place the insulation inbetween the wood studs and then put the wall back on. Dust will be everywhere. If you have to add insulation I would get the sound proof with fire proofing, it would give you about 20 extra minutes to get out of your house if it caught on fire.
    Somthing to think about. Hope this helps.

  • yes but it was the cheap stuff because no one was here monitoring when the house was being rebuilt; if you want good quality insulation you better be prepared to be at the house when they are installing to make sure they are putting what you want in them
