Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handiman Tuff stuff
Purchased this and installed in my shed just tacking it to the bottom of the rafters and the wall studs, then installed Masonite panels for a finished look. Wow, this dropped the temp in the shed by a good 10 - 15 degrees. The product is very tuff, just rolled it around the room, and used a staple gun to attach to the walls. My shed is a 10 x 20, so I used about 2/3rds of the roll to enclose the entire thing. Way worth the money spent, glad I did it. shed is now like being under a tree.

I bought this insulation as a (hopefully) cheaper option than that foil backed rigid foam insulation or installing an air conditioner, in order to keep the temperature down in my garage. The product probably does as advertised, which is deflect radiant heat. It did, in fact, reduce the temps in the attic space by about 10 degrees (105f down to 95f). The problem is that unless there is a place for the hot air to go it will still get hot in the ceiling. I ended up spending about $250 on a solar powered attic fan and it immediately vented the attic and cooled the space down. If you already have a roof vent then this product will probably work better for you than for me.
The product is well made. It is tear resistant, easy to staple in place (the stapler is a separate review...Grrrr.) and east to trim.

The Silvertanium Radiant Barrier is easy to work with, strong and flexible to install around obstacles. Cuts easily with a sharp utility knife.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SamuelJackson Well worth the money and time to install!
The material is Tarp-like and much thicker and stronger than I thought it would be. I thought it was going to be similar to an emergency blanket but it is actually more like a plastic tarp but with a tighter weave. This means that it is not able to be used as a moisture barrier but that it is also much more durable.
The way that I used it was for the attic in my house to help reflect the heat back into the house. I rolled it out across the rafters and placed insulation both above and below the barrier. To validate the improvement I timed how frequently my furnace turned on when it was about 45 degrees outside.
Before the Barrier Installation: Every 22 minutes
After the Barrier Installation: Every 35 minutes
For the purposes of my install it is likely that some of my improvements were due to me fluffing up the old insulation during installation, but there was clearly an improvement with the installation of the barrier as well.

The Silvertanium Reflective Attic Insulation was very easy to install and seems to be very durable. I would recommend this product as an addition to the standard insulating materials used for home insulation.

I put this up over the course of a couple of weekends. It would be a lot easier with two people. Crawl spaces was the most difficult to work in, but that's why they call it a crawl space! I used a manual stapler with a box of 1/4" staples, if you have electric stapler use it, especially in tite corners. I had a head lamp, knife, tape measure, foil tape for corners and parts of ceiling.
I think it will make a huge difference for the summer months.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sngz4hm A simple do-it-yourself energy saving product.
The radiant barrier was very flexible and strong, easy to cut and install. I noticed the attic temperature falling as quickly as I was adding new pieces of the foil. By the time I finished the installation the future master suite was not only significantly cooler but surprisingly quieter. The only tools necessary were a measuring tape, straight edge, scissors, and a stapler. Good investment.
