I am putting a floor in my attic. The attic has -in

Customer Question

I am putting a floor in my attic. The attic has blown-in insulation in the floor. It's too thick to screw plywood on top of the attic joists, so I'm running a 36" piece of plastic across the joists and bagging the extra insulation. The attic ceiling has no insulation. I want to use the insulation I took from the floor to insulate the ceiling. What type of paper should I use to contain the loose insulation? *****@******.***

Ok, there are a few issues with your plan. It sounds like you plan to put a vapor barrier on top of the attic insulation. Is that the case? Do you currently have ridge and soffit vents?
