Answer: 
When the Existing insulation is either unfaced batts or loose-fill, the New insulation should be unfaced fiberglass batts OR blown in fiberglass loose-fill. If the existing insulation is an encapsulated product, both unfaced product and blow in insulation can be added on top of an existing encapsulated product.

Answer: 
Slightly compressed 8” batt insulation will provide more R-value than 6.25" batt insulation in a cavity with a depth of 7".

My attic floor joists are redwood actual 2x4" not nominal 2x4 I want to put in attic insulation. Is it worth it if I use 6.25" thick vs 3.5" insulatn?

This question is from R-30 Unfaced Insulation Batts 24 in. x 48 in.
Asked by
Rental cottage landlord

Even if the 6.25 thick insulation sticks up 2.25" above the height of each 4" tall ceiling joist, will it give me that extra insulation in the winter or is it better to just use 3.5" thich insulation between the actual 4" tall joists?
Would I be wasting my money getting the thicker? Is it another problem that when someone ever needs to get access to the crawl space in the attic (perhaps every couple of years ) they would have to step between the batts to step on the rafters?

Answer: 
Hi Rental cottage landlord,
The thicker insulation will give you a higher R valve and retain more heat in the winter and save energy.
The extra insulation is well worth the cost.
Stepping on the insulation is not a problem as long as it is restored to the original height after the work in the attic is complete.
Mike,
