vapor barriers

Posted by Tom Nelson on March 11th, 1999 06:56 PM

I'm building a new home and want some opinions about using vapor barriers in homes. My contractor says that he has done it both ways with and without the vapor barrier on your ceilings. There seems to be several schools of thought , some contractors think you trap moisture under your ceilings which I think is probably a humidity problem. We will use blown in fiberglass insulation. Also, is kraftfaced insulation an adequate vapor barrier? We live in Iowa and would like some other opinions if anyone has any... Tom
