Cellulose with Vermiculite?

Recommended Posts

This insulation looks like blown in cellulose but it sparkled a little bit. On closer scrutiny it looks like there's some little chunks of her vermiculite in it. Anybody see this before?

Hi Mike,

You should have dug down into it. You would have found the mother lode. I had one this afternoon. '50's house. I crawled into the attic and found it with about 14-inches of insulation. Thought it was odd to have so much in such an old house. then I noticed the glint. Dug down and found the ceiling joist bays full to the top with vermiculite. They'd blown in the cells on top of it.
