Video: Installing Fiberglass Insulation Batts & Vapor Barrier

Tools Required: Utility knife, tape measure, caulking gun, stapler

Skill Level : 5/12

In order to create a warm dry home, installing insulation and vapor barrier correctly is a must.

The insulation creates a warmer home (R value) while the vapor barrier controls air leakage (drafty walls) and stops moist air from inside the home from entering the wall cavity and possibly creating mould and other moisture problems inside the wall. Be sure not to over compact the insulation when you place it into the wall and also be sure to seal the vapor barrier completely using tuck tape or acoustical sealant.
