Cellulose Settling

Does Cellulose insulation settle over time, if so how much?

Does settling cause it to lose R-value?

Do you have to blow in extra insulation to make up for the settling?

Yes it does settle. But the r value and coverage listed on the package are at the settled density. If you use the number of bags per square foot the package says, you will actually have "extra" r-value for a couple of years until it reaches it's settled density.
