Customer Questions & Answers

Installing insulation on existing insulation.

I bought an old house that currently has R-11 fiberglass insulation between the 2x8 rafters. I want to install R30 roll out fiberglass over the existing insulation. Can I lay the new insulation over the old insulation? Does there need to be a layer of insulation that covers the rafters?
Asked by: Anonymous
It sounds like the existing insulation (R-11) is coming up short of the of the top edge of your 2x8 rafters / ceiling joists. I would run R-13 Un-faced on top of the R-11 between your ceiling joists to fill the Void, and then run the R-30 un-faced perpendicular to the rafters / ceiling Joists. That should give you a little more than R-50.

my Attic is done with 2X8s and this is thicker, I want to put plywood down for storage as this area is over my garage. Will this be a problem

Asked by: Anonymous
I had a similar problem. There's an easy fix.I installed 2x4's on top of the ceiling joists.

WHat gives...?

I added this stuff to my cart it was 13 and change a roll...When I went to check out it jumped to the current price of 17 and change a roll? That's ludicrous
Asked by: headhunter
This happened to me before and it had to do with the store selection. I found this insulation is cheaper in other parts of the country and when I selected the correct store, it jumped up a few bucks.

does my roof/attic need faced insulation: it has none right now.

just moved into a home that the roof is only partially insulated. do I need to use faced insulation:
Asked by: sharky
You need a vapor barrier next to the living space. Kraft faced will work if placed the paper side down.

R-30 Unfaced Insulation Continuous Roll 15 in. x 25 ft. is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 90.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Before I put this insulation my house was either too cold or too hot (two levels house). It works wonderful. This morning the temp outside was 59f and the house was 72f inside, the tstat setting was 68f. The heat never came on all night, unbelievable! I first sealed all the holes inthe attic, with painters caulk, to stop all air leaks, specially around the light. I did not removed the old faced insulation, I was too lazy to removed it. I then layed down the unfaced insulation over the old one and then another layer accross to cover the joyces,and now I have a more efficient house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Insulation for the money The large roles are easy to install. My attic has pretty tight spaces but it wasn't difficult at all, just time consuming. Great product for the Money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lessons learned on installation Installed ten rolls in three hours. Easy to do. Just need long sleeves, knee pads, glasses, knife, two boards to cut it, and six foot pole to put insulation in position. Two tips. 1) I must have bumped my head a 100 times on the rafters. Wear a bicycle helmet to protect your noggin. 2) Use a strap to hold your glasses on. Gets a tad sweaty and they start to fall off while your hands a full. Tried it without glasses, but the dust started getting in my eyes. Regular safety glasses worked just fine. If you find some that are wrap around goggle type, they would do a tad better. I will compare electric bills before and after and post the results later this summer.

Chose this over blow in insulation as the cost was comparable but the big difference is that I could complete the job with just one person; after all they're just rolls that need to be unrolled and set in place. Blown insulation should provide better insulation performance but requires additional help in setting up and feeding the machine, also have to finish the job within 24 hours with the free rental machine. This roll insulation provides good performance for the money and easy to work with. I was able to pickup from store and drive home and work on my own time with just one person and no rental time constraints

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard job made easier with this product My husband and I purchased this insulation on sale and chose this brand due to its eco friendly properties and R-30 rating. We installed 50 rolls in our attic over a couple of weekends. This product performs as advertised and reviewed: No vocs, itch free, can tear it with your hands if you left your matt knife 20 feet behind you on a board in the attic. Absolutely the best choice we could have made for our project. If you have a low ceiling attic this is the way to go.....easier to roll and push with broom handles to edges than hunch and crouch with the blow-in type insulation which is what I helped my brother do in his attic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to Install - Little Pricey Our 1950s house had very little insulation in the attic. It took me and the wife 5 hours to do a 1200 square-foot attic. We wore good masks, not the typical painters mask. Like others, we wore gloves and long sleeves. Without them it was a little itchy. It's too bad the price jumped many dollars from just a few years ago. The house does seem quieter alongside a busy street. We have an oil furnace so we can't wait to see the difference this year. Used 36 rolls @ $15 each. I could not use veterans discount on this product. Customer Service told me because it was a hot commodity.

I used it in my rafters between my garage and upper story. I then stapled a layer of R19 over the R30 . At least 12 inches of combined insulation. Now my living space is so warm and quiet. Great price and value. You get a great price for over 20 rolls. It comes with 18 rolls on a pallet all sealed with plastic. Home Depot loaded 2 whole pallets on my trailer ! nice !

I found this product extremely easy to work with, recommended gloves/long sleeves and a mask. I used in my kitchen for insulating and soundproofing. I used both faced and unfazed behind the green board. It worked well in between the plumbing and overall.. Im very pleased. I plan to buy more for another layer or two in my attic.
