I WOULD LIKE TO ADD MORE INSULATION TO MY ATTIC.

I LIVE IN LOUISIANA AND AT THIS TIME MY ATTIC HAS 6" THICK KRAFT FACED INSULATION.

I WOULD LIKE TO ADD MORE AND MY QUESTION IS :

CAN I ADD ANOTHER LAYER ON TOP THAT HAS A KRAFT FACE ON IT AND SINCE THE OTHER FACE IS BASICALLY AGAINST THE CEILING CAN I INSTALL THIS FACE SO IT FACES UP INTO THE ATTIC.

WOULD THIS CAUSE A MOISTURE PROBLEM?

JMGray,

Dont Do IT!

Use unfaced insulation to go on top of the existing insulation.

Attics should never have 2 vapor barriers in the attic.

Go as thick as you want, go what ever direction you want, but no vapor barrier.

Best regards,
