Thank you for touching on the high importance of air sealing! I see a lot of attics with mold problems because it was a 'blow and go' job. It cheapens the image of our profession. I actually took the time to write a DIY Attic Insulation eBook that is very detailed on how to do it yourself, so I share your passion for doing it right, even if I don't get paid for it. For the record, I prefer cellulose to fiberglass, despite coming from the fiberglass industry.
I happened to see your comment. Just had an exchange with someone in the trade who was defending the use of fiberglass. We happen to use "stabilized cellulose". I'd be interested to hear what you have to say about why you prefer cellulose. It's always great to have a "third-party" provide a professional opinion!
Well-thought-out and written article. Many homeowners trying to insulate their attics take shortcuts. Good to see the steps in prepping the job included.
Will be re-posting for others to see this!
