My attic is 1300sq" of beautiful, wide open space. It is currently NOT insulated, and this needs to be remedied. Eventually, I would like to use the attic space as a livable, occupied space, so I want to do the insulation right the first time. I've talked to many vendors, and each one has given me a different story on how to approach this job.
- Fiberglass with baffles
- Fiberglass WITHOUT baffles
- Soffit and ridge vents
- NO venting necessary!
- Spray foam, fiberglass, "green" materials, OH MY!
Ultimately, I need to hear from people who know what they are talking about to get some solid advice. My biggest question: Do I need to cut ridge and soffit vents? Or does this completely depend on which insulation material I use? Thanks, everyone!
