Rocking Over Dens-pac Cellulose In Walls When Done With Mesh


How does it go with you on jobs like this? What does the insulation contractor do to minimize the bulge-out, so you are not fighting it when laying on boards?

I have used dense packed fiberglass numerous times.

I have yet to have an issue with the drywall bulging when going over it.

If it is bulging out...it is overfilled....
I would call your insulator and ask him what he is going to do about it.

''Noboby else is complaining''

I've hung my fare share of board on ''overstuffed''walls and ceilings. Board can push it in to some point. But if its popping screws it has to be addressed!

Make them come back and fix it!

How about plumbers kickplates at the base of the wall going over pipes already 1/2'' out of the wall?????

Make them come back and fix it. Riiiiiiiiight

UpNorth, what do you mean by ''done with mesh''. Thanks

We do this type of wall fill frequently, and have no issues with the rock not laying flat. The key is obviously to not overfill to an extreme, and cellulose will compress quite a bit, no problem.

Re: Rocking Over Dens-pac Cellulose In Walls When Done With Mesh


The amount of bulge out in your pic looks acceptable to me. In a first class insulation job, the insulation should make good contact with the rock, and that's going to require pushing in the bulge a bit. Using 5/8's helps a lot. The real answer might be to charge a bit more for hanging over dense pack.

The real answer is to charge a lot more to cut slits in the mesh and pull out hands full of insulation, which I have had to do on some jobs.

Try setting the depth on the screw gun shallower so the screws don't pop. Do the whole house, then double up with a tighter depth setting beside each one to draw it tight, then hand tighten the first pass of screws flush. Twice the screwing but ensures no popping - factor it into your price next time.
