Loose Insulation For Ceiling Repair


Repairing about a 4 x 6 ceiling from a leak. Hole collapsed and insul came a down a pouring.

Should I really match with the same type? Fiberglass, cellulose, etc?

Building is more than 15 yrs old.

Insulation is insulation. You could use dried petunias if they have the R value.

Most resistant to mold growth is mineral wool.
