removing blue foam insulation - termite damage
Hi, I usually post in the decorating forum but have a serious construction problem to solve.
A recent termite inspection alerted me to the fact that my 20 year old house has old, inactive termite tunnels in the garage. The tunnels are in the blue foam insulation and did not get to the wood.
I don't know if this is a regional thing or standard building practice, but this is how my house was built: house was framed, then foam insulation was applied to the outside of the frame, then siding was put up.
I am going to remove the blue foam that is damaged. My question is can I replace this with fiberglass insulation? The area I am replacing extends up the walls about two feet and covers an area about 12 feet wide.
A rant while I'm on the subject: I am in Georgia, one of the worst states for termites. Why would builders use an insulation that termites can eat?
