Griffith Res

Relatively new addition to a house built in 2001. The floor above the crawl space had R-19 FG batts shoved in between the joists. Some critters had nested in sections of the batt insulation.

I removed the batts, sprayed an inch of closed-cell foam to the underside of the floor, replaced the batts (after cutting them to fit snugly between the joists), and finished things off by installing Tyvek house wrap to the bottom of the joists.
