Best Insulating Method for Bathroom with Outside Walls
I currently have a bathroom with two outside 2alls and a vaulted ceiling. The bathroom is unbelievably cold in the winter. I am going to be redoing the bathroom and was wondering what is the warmest insulation I can use in a boathroom - i.e. taking into account the greater moisture. I was thinking blown in foam (closed cell?) would be the best for stopping drafts, but I was concerned about the moisture (I live in Westchester, N.T.). I suppose the other option in seal with closed cell to seal up leaks and put in rigid, which I understand has a higher R value. Would I put up a plastic vapor barrier in that case? Would you use the same type of insuraltion in the walls of the shower (which also get very cold because the other side is open to a stairway that gets very cold. any tips would be very much appreciated.
