Sitting Under a Walnut Tree: I live in a house from the 30s it's a kit home. I had problems with the wall boards warping from moisture and am going to replace with fresh drywall. Not surprising there's no insulation in the walls. What do you suggest for an old house with paper thin walls?

Adrian Rodriguez: the fiber glass causes cancer n creates dust that can have u have allergies .

Cody Williams: I admit I have no knowledge on the subject so please don't judge. 1 solid piece of foam is exactly that... 1 solid piece. Same would go for professionally sprayed foam... 1 solid piece of sprayed foam. The question starts here: when you "spray foam" onto already existing foam, does it "bond" and create a water tight seal as 1 unit? Logic tells me no, but I honestly don't know.

TheLookingOne: Hello Shannon,
I've come from your roofing videos. Good job !
Hey, I like stucco / timber (English Tudor) walls.
My house has exposed concrete block walls. I'm thinking of insulation, an air space, and then the exterior. Do you know of some exterior wall panels (fiber, fiberglass, pvc, ???)
that look like stucco, and don't need to be painted?
Wait! I'll go to the forum....

julia strutt: i thank you for answering me

julia strutt: as our house is very cold

julia strutt: can you please leave a message we need to insulate walls and floor

WTC7WasPulled: Cellulose?

Greg Shaw: what do you think about Roxul insulation and is it worth the cost

Iron Arm: Roxul (Rock wool) is far superior than pink batts. It's moisture and fire resistant. I can't believe people still use pink.

hotrodder62: You do not ,repeat.. DO NOT, install a vapor barrier over spray foam.

GreenKoolaidGuy Plays: out of all the college why pink I almost ate that "cotton candy" when I was younger

Happy Gardener: Hi Shannon, this video is very good to understand the different options. We bought an old house, that was supposed to have a finished basement but appears to be the former owner just covered the walls with drywall over 1x4 boards. My husband and I have been thinking in place some rigid insulation sheets on top of the drywall and then add some more drywall on top. We live in some place in Canada where the temperature drops to -50 C in winter. I wonder if this could be a good idea or it is better just remove everything and start from scratch? Thanks in advance for any ideas

Sandra Willick: Shannon, when you poly this wall do you use acoustical just at the top, bottom, sides or do you seal off the center on the sill between frame wall and cement section with acoustical too?
