My question is about what is typical / expected on new construction. I have done a lot of remodels (over a dozen) in my life but this is my first 100%, new construction.
Contractor is insisting we insulate (EDIT: the attic) before he tapes. I simply want to know why, as his explanation wasn't clear. If anything, I would think he'd prefer I wait to blow the insulation until after he's completely done with the drywalling and taping/mudding/texturing so he can leave the house in a warranty state before I spend more time in the attic. Also, if I blow insulation in now, won't the insulation stick out of the cracks and mess up his mud job? Furthermore, wouldn't you want the drywall as hot as possible (un-insulated from attic heat?)
My question is 90% what is typical/expected here, and 10% explanation as to why please.
