Bathroom Insulation and Ventilation Remodeling Concerns
A lot of client questions that come up during a bathroom remodel, but one question that never seems to make the discussions is bathroom insulation and ventilation. Sure people want a bath fan and their walls and ceilings insulated but do they REALLY know what the contractor is scoping out for their home?

No matter where you install it, insulation is a wise investment. Proper bathroom insulation will help keep the room a comfortable temperature year-round.
A good insulating system includes a combination of products and construction techniques that protect your home from outside hot or cold temperatures, protect it against air leaks, and control moisture.
Installing insulation that offers excellent moisture-control properties will minimize the possibility of vapor collecting under the insulation. For years we accomplished this by installing a 6 mil plastic vapor retarder under the wallboard and over the stud walls and fiberglass insulation.
