    Default Give some for Home Renovation

    I have listed some of the options / ideas of what I am going to do with each part:

    1. Bathroom Ceiling:
    • 5/8” greenboard
    • 6mil plastic sheeting
    • on attic side, greenfiber blow-in up to a recommended amount to achieve a high R-Value

    • 5/8” greenboard
    • Faced Fiberglass Insulation Batts (faced down toward the bathroom ceiling)
    • On top of batts, greenfiber blown-in to a recommended amount to achieve a high R-Value

    Which option would make more sense?

    2. Exterior Wall (will have no fixtures / no running pipes, just a window)

    • Ultratouch batts
    • 6mil plastic sheeting
    • 5/8” greenboard (for better insulation)

    3. Tub/Shower wall surround:

    • No insulation in wall cavities
    • 6mil plastic sheeting
    • Ĺ” Durock
    • Shlutzer Kerdi membrane
    • Tiles

    4. Also, I will be insulating a garage ceiling, so our bedroom (which is directly above this unheated garage) will be much warmer in the winter months.

    • About 2” of insulated sheathing (like XPS, EPS, or Polyiso, etc.)
    • Ultratouch batts
    • 5/8” Type X Drywall

    In terms of insulated foam sheathing, I am not sure which one would be best for this project. Should I use boards that contain laminated facers on both sides, on one side, or neither, just “unfaced”? Should I use XPS, EPS, or Polyiso?

    Please, advice / comment on all of these above points.
    Thank you.
