Blown in cellulose in new construction

Had this done? Yep. Highly recommended over fiberglass batts. Higher R-value for a given depth, much less air filtration, and excellent noise control.

Maybe 25% more than what batts would have cost.

You don't want to do this yourself. It takes a pro to avoid a crap job or leave voids around pipes and electrical cables. Too dry and you'll lose anything you spray, too wet and you'll create a mold problem.

Those DIY blowers work OK for attic jobs with dry material, but don't do anything close to the pressure needed for damp material in the walls.

Two tricks for working in a hot attic:
1. Put a lawn sprinkler or two on the roof. 2. Disconnect one of the A/C ducts and let it cool the attic.
