Insulating a Kitchen
Kitchens can be one of the busiest and noisiest areas in the home. Insulation can provide a buffer between the kitchen and quieter areas of the home.
As in bathrooms, moisture can be an issue because of the steam generated by cooking and washing dishes. Moisture can result in mold and mildew growth, damaging your home and potentially damaging you and your family's health.
You can avoid these problems by installing insulation that offers excellent moisture-control properties. To minimize the possibility of vapor collecting under the insulation, a vapor retarder is generally installed (according to local codes).
