Hello. I want to insulate a porch and make it into a year round room - have just installed really good windows. Presently the porch is open underneath. I am thinking of putting 2" foam insulation (styrofoam). Do you cover that foam insulation with something to ward off critters? I have had problems with carpenter ants in the past - taken care of - but don't want to encourage a return event and don't want cats or small wild animals nesting in whatever insulation I use. Was thinking of putting some kind of sheeting over the foam, if that's the best material to use, but wonder about creating a moisture problem.
All suggestions greatly appreciated. Thank you.
