I have a wooden screened-in porch on a cabin that I am remodeling, with approximately 30 inches from the ground to the bottom of the porch tongue-and-groove boards. I am considering insulating the porch, with the eventual goal of being able to place polycarbonate panels over the screen in the cold months to help with heat loss.
Before I replace the floor, I would like to add insulation board between the floor joists and staple wire mesh underneath to keep any critters from chewing up the exposed insulation board.
The caveat: this is near a river, and on rare occasion it does flood. I'm worried that placing the foam board would trap a large amount of moisture after a flood between it and the joists / tongue and groove that would keep it from drying out relatively quickly and therefor rot / mold.
Are there ways to mitigate this? Raising the structure isn't an option, but I'm unsure how/if it's possible to vent the individual compartments created by the insulation board / floor joists.
