    Default Improve insulation

    The house we are currently living in was insulated with a type of blow in foam insulation. It was pumped in as a foam and then dried out. When I remodeled our bathroom this summer I found out that when the insulation dried out it came away from the walls, studs and dropped down. We now have approximately 3/4 inch of gap between each of the studs and the foam and 1/2 inch gap between the walls (inside and outside) and the foam and probably 3 to 4 inches under each window and the foam.

    How do I get more insulation in the walls?I will reside this summer and thought it would be a great time to do it. Some one did suggest getting something in the walls to breakup the foam and then start over with cellulose insulation. Any better ways?

    it sounds like your foam was not installed properly. if you knew who installed it, or what product they used, that might help. I would try to contact them, they should come and refoam it.
    your location could help too.

    Check with your insulation contractor. Sounds like an installation error.
