Answer: 
Assuming that the 304 sqft is the room size, you would need 7 if you have an 8 ft ceiling, and 9 if you have a 10 ft ceiling. Keep in mind that is if you want to insulate all 4 walls of a 304 sqft room. I modeled the room at 15x20 for a rough estimate. You really only need to insulate the outside facing walls.
If the 304 sqft is actual insulated wall space, you would need just over 7 rolls assuming 16 Read More
Assuming that the 304 sqft is the room size, you would need 7 if you have an 8 ft ceiling, and 9 if you have a 10 ft ceiling. Keep in mind that is if you want to insulate all 4 walls of a 304 sqft room. I modeled the room at 15x20 for a rough estimate. You really only need to insulate the outside facing walls.
If the 304 sqft is actual insulated wall space, you would need just over 7 rolls assuming 16 inch center wall studs. It's actually only about 7.1, so you could probably get away with 7 rolls here. Most walls have a few double stud areas that make up for a little of that space. I calculated this as 38 linear feet of 8 ft tall wall space. That would give you 28.5 stud center voids to insulate at 228 linear feet of insulation. Read Less

Answer: 
If you are thinking about this for the ceiling, then roughly 12-13 rolls. If for the walls, you will get about 4 linear feet per roll at a 10ft ceiling and about 5 linear feet for 8 ft ceilings.

Answer: 
what part of the lofted area are you insulating? Would need the ft X ft of each area you are insulating?
ASSUMING you are doing walls, b/c R 13 is for walls, and assuming you've calculated that area as 12 X 40 = 480 sf.
Each R 13 roll is 15 inches X 32 Ft Long OR 1.25 ft x 32 ft = 40 Sq Ft coverage per roll of insulation.
480 sq Ft DIVIDED by 40 Sq Ft = 12 rolls of the R-13 insulation.

If the walls are built with 2" x 4" studs, go with R13 or R15. If 2" x 6" studs, you might want to go with R19 or R21. It's very beneficial to insulate garage walls.

Assuming you are sticking with fiberglass and not considering rigid or expanding foam, it depends. I know, not the answer your looking for. R-13 fiberglass is 3.5 in deep when it expands. So the question is how deep is your wall cavity and what zone do you live in? Zone 1-4, R-13 is ok assuming you have about 3.5 in of space in your walls. If you live in zone 5 and up and or have more depth in your Read More

If you live in zone 5 and up and or have more depth in your walls, I would use a R-19 fiberglass.
Also it is very important to airseal everything before you install the insulation and drywall. Even small holes, gaps, or seams can seriously degrade the insulations ability to, well, insulate. Easiest way to do this is to use acrylic caulk on anything 1/4 in and smaller and expanding foam from a can on anything bigger. Read Less

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by R13 Good price if you buy in bulk. Still the same price as other big box stores if you don't. It's Owens-Corning so it's a quality product August 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great value for quality product. After a small delay in getting my order to the door (my order was "locked out" by another associate in the system), I received 20 rolls of this insulation. I was pleasantly surprised that all 20 rolls fit into my Cadillac SRX. Installed product easily the very next day. March 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great insulation, no weird smells! Unlike some other insulation products that seem to outgas and produce a "candy-like" smell, this stuff has no smell. (This is a week after insulatiion in a 16x12 shed that still has no wallboard or other cover over the insulation.) Also, I haven't noticed the "itch factor" that is common when installing fiberglass insulation. I wore a long-sleeve shirt, shorts, a hat, gloves and sneakers. (Gloves are highly recommended - picking glass fibers out of your fingers is not fun.) Paper facing material is pretty strong, but will rip if you miss the stud and hit it with your hammer tacker. When installing, GET THIS TOOL: http://www.homedepot.com/p/DEWALT-Heavy-Duty-Hammer-Tacker-DWHTHT450/202719124 The DeWalt hammer tacker will save you hours of time, and tons of hand pain. Installing thousands of staples with a normal staple gun is not fun. Really - buy it! July 2, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Decent product needing a bit better quality control. Generally easy to install. However, on several of the rolls I bought the paper facing was badly wrinkled. This made the insulation a bit harder to cut, and considerably harder to install neatly. Poor quality control by the manufacturer. April 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Crawl spaces too..... I added about 40 rolls of this to improve the insulation in between the floor joists in my crawl space. My floor joists are 9" deep but the existing insulation was R-19, 6" unfaced fiberglass(no moisture barrier) and kept seperating from the bottom of the house floor ruining its insulating value. Adding more suspension rods just compressed the fiberglass more ruining its insulating value as well. I pulled down all the existing insulation(inspected, airsealed, got rid of some mold)then added the new R-13, 3.5" faced rolls and then put the old insulation back up. Adding these new rolls allowed me to sandwich my water pipes between the two layers, gave me a moisture barrier against the floor boards, and increased my R value to a combined R-32 which is above the recommended for zone 6 vented crawl space. I then used chicken wire fence stapled to the bottom of the floor joists instead of suspension rods to hold the insulation in place and in contact with the floor boards. My floors are definitly warmer now. Next project, the attic. February 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Effective! I just finished insulating the walls of an 800 sq-ft building. In the middle of Texas summer with highs over 100 deg, this building was nearly unbearable to be in during the middle of the day prior to the insulation going in. After I finished insulating the building's walls, the inside temperature dropped nearly 30 degrees and was generally comfortable to be in. A few tips: Use a hammer tacker stapler when hanging this insulation. Start with one of the top corners and hold it in place. Tack the corner on the stud with a few strikes. Tack the opposite corner next and make sure the facing is well stretched between 16 in on center 2x4 wall studs. Go down the wall tacking each side about every 8 inches. Cut out for wall sockets and simple fold back the insulation. At the bottom, cut across with a good pair of scissors or a box knife. Use a 2x4 to hold down long sections to cut lengthwise with a box knife. Save your scraps because they will come in handy for filling in oddly spaced studs or around other wall features such as electrical boxes, plumbing, etc. Make sure to fill in every gap you can. Anything you can't fill with this insulation, fill it with spray foam insulation to ensure that you have no air leaks from the outside. This will really help to increase the overall energy efficiency of your space. November 11, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job We are remodeling an attic space into a craft/cat room. Space is very cold in winter and really hot in summer. I could feel the room warming up as I was putting in the insulation. 50 degrees outside. My only gripe is that HD shows a bonus roll that adds an extra 7' to each roll. HD CS says that they have these in stock but when I pick them up they are they std 32' rolls. Talked the CS agent into a 10% discount; but that still didn't make up for the extra rolls I had to buy for this project. Look for the RF12 on the roll. These are the bonus rolls. September 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A little itchy A little itchy after use but not bad. I'm finishing my garage and this seems to be working out good. I found that cutting it with a bread knife is easier than a razor or a regular knife. I can't believe how much it expands after you take the plastic wrap off of it. November 30, 2015
