I am redoing all the outside walls in my home.
(in between my 2x4 outer walls is empty space. No
So I am yanking everything down (sheetrock is shot anyhow)
and installing r-11 insulation.
I have been reading and wondering if its advisable to
put clear plastic wrap (vapor barrior) between the sheetrock and
wall/insulation????? (I know the plastic wrap has
a specific name but I dont recall it.)
Would that create a vapor problem? Would this be
bad to use if using Kraft Paper R-11???
In addition to the interior walls, I shall be doing
the outside ones too. What is the recommended/favored
method? I am using vinyl siding on the exterior.
Would you use vinyl->foam insulation-> house wrap(tyvec)???
Currently the house only has aluminum siding->tar paper ->
tongue and groove pine planks.
I am located in NY, weather here can be cold in the winter and
real hot and humid in the summer. Most of the time cold though!
Thanx for any tips!
