A client of mine is in need of insulation in his home. I dicovered while I was gutting a wall that there was absolutly no insulation! He was complaining that hiw walls were cold, no wonder! I will be insulating my new 2×6 wall construction with R-19 bats. He will hire an insulation contractor to blow in insulation into his existing walls from the exterior ( good thing he needs a paint job) So here’s the question, he has heard that blown in ( I’m assuming some sort of cellulose product) has more of a potential mold issue than fiberglass ( batts). anyone have an opion? I’d say if either gets wet there is the same potential, unless the cell would hold water longer. How about it?
