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?

Bathroom Insulation and Ventilation


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.
