Hi Glenn,
I'll try to answer your question if you tell me this:
  1. Your geographical location (I need to know your climate – city / state)
  2. What’s directly beneath the attic and what type of a structure is it single story, split level, multi story, etc.)
  3. Roof shape – flat or sloped, with overhang (soffits)
  4. Roof decking material (plywood / planks or framing only)
  5. Type of insulation already installed
  6. The reason for filling an entire attic with insulation / do you have mold problem?
Just answer to the best of your knowledge, click “comment” below.
