Dear EMK: Reflectix is simply air filled bubble wrap with a shiny aluminum surface. You can easily cut it with scissors.
Please note that all reflective insulation products require you to build / create a sealed air pocket on one side. This air pocket actually provides almost all of the insulation value; the bubble wrap only provides R1. So with a hot roof, for example, you would need to staple the reflective product to the underside of your rafters -- and seal all of the edges and seams carefully. DAP 230 works well as a sealant. You will be stapling into wood, so use a power stapler, e.g. Stanley Model # TRE550Z Internet # 100388382 Store SKU # 590102
Reflective insulation is also effective only in summer, because cold cannot be "reflected". For most applications, Home Depot sells other products that are much more effective -- e.g. foam board, blown cellulose for attics and Roxul Comfortbatt and Comfortboard.
I hope this is helpful.

Answer: 
Yes. It is not hazardous to cut and the excess pieces do not require special handling and can be tossed into the garbage. There is nothing that will cause respiratory or health problems and it will not cause you to itch.
This is very similar to the bubble packing you get in packages to protect the shipment only this has reflective material on it to reflect the radiant heat.

Answer: 
Rodents do not like this stuff and will not chew on it. They may take a bite but that will be enough to deter them from chewing through it. I have some of this stuff in the crawl space and have not had any problems with insects any more than with any other types of insulation. If the edges are sealed then insects will not be able to get inside the insulated apace easily.

Dear Reece: You asked this question in February, so I assume you want to insulate your crawl space against the cold air outside. If so, reflective insulation is not effective because cold cannot be "reflected", unlike radiant heat from a hot metal roof in summer.

Home Depot sells other products that would be more effective in your crawl space, e.g. Tuff-R foam board which provides R8.9 insulation value. See: TUFF-R Model # 193829, Home Depot Internet # 100322375 Store SKU # 163524
You can simply nail or screw sheets of this foam board to the bottom of your floor joists. Carefully seal all of the edges and joints to block air leaks. The 'Windows and Doors' version of Great Stuff foam works well; the cured foam remains flexible to avoid cracks as things expand and contract.

Answer: 
Animals and insects do not like Reflectix products because of the metalized film and poly-ethylene used to make our products. Our products have no material that can be used for nesting by animals.

Dear Rich:
As the Reflectix rep noted, this product is not designed to be installed on the outside of a building wall.
Home Depot offers a number of good options, depending on your building, the location above / below grade and the appearance you are looking for. A few tips:
> Below grade: If you want to insulate the outside of a basement wall that will be below grade, Foamular XPS is ideal with R 5 per inch. It does not absorb moisture. High compression versions are also available for insulation under concrete slabs.
> Above grade: The best option depends on the construction of your wall. If this is a residential building that will be covered with siding, for example, the best option (again) is Foamular XPS board, which does not absorb water. We recently wrapped the outside of a house in Massachusetts, for example, with 2" Foamular board. 1x strapping was screwed onto the surface, and siding was attached to that. Air leaks are important: be sure to seal all of the edges and joints. The 'Windows and Doors' version of Great Stuff works well because it remains flexible as things expand and contract. To ensure a good deal, we covered Great Stuff with a generous layer of DAP 230 on all of the joints. A photo is attached.
If you do not plan to install siding and are not concerned about the appearance, Roxul Comfortboard 40 is the best option with R 4.2 per inch. Unlike foam board, Roxul is fireproof and does not need to be covered with siding. (Foam board MUST be covered.) You can order Roxul Comfortboard via the Home Depot Customer Service or Pro Desk. Ask for the "foil faced" option, which will make the surface easy to clean.
I hope this is helpful.

Answer: 
No. This will not replace the need for insulation. This just reflects radiant heat. You will still need to insulate the floor.
My suggestion is to install this material, then install the insulation, then install a wind, moisture barrier and then some very fine heavy duty galvanized mesh that will keep out rodents. The cats are probably not destroying your insulation, it is more likely rodents.

You should spend the money on making the access to the underside of your home restricted with proper air vents that have heavy duty rodent proof mesh. This is your best bet. Read Less

Dear 'Cats': Yes, you could install Reflectix under your mobile home, with a couple of caveats. First, Reflectix provides almost no insulation itself; the R values on the package depend on a sealed 'air gap' that you must create / build when you install it.

Dear 'Cats': Yes, you could install Reflectix under your mobile home, with a couple of caveats. First, Reflectix provides almost no insulation itself; the R values on the package depend on a sealed 'air gap' that you must create / build when you install it. Second, performance drops sharply in the winter, because there is little radiant heat for the shiny surface to reflect.
Home Depot sells other insulation options that would be good under your motor home, e.g. Foamular XPS foam board and Super-Tuff polyiso foam board. Foam boards are tough and 'cat-proof'.
Depending on how your mobile home frame is constructed, you could nail, screw or wire and glue the panels to the underside. Be sure to carefully seal the edges and joints with Great Stuff foam, to block air leaks and isolate your floor from the cold air outside. Use 2" thick panels for R10, and add another layer if you want to boost the R value. XPS does not absorb water; if you use Super-Tuff, be sure to seal the edges to block water.
Do not install XPS foam next to any source of heat, e.g. a furnace. It is flammable. If the area under your motor home is accessible, spray the foam board with intumescent paint to create a thermal barrier. Look for: ForceField FireGuard, Model # FFGD E84-g05 Internet # 203582028

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Did what I wanted When I finished my basement I didn't insulate the walls trying to save money and most of it is below ground. After a few years I realized it was a mistake because it wouldn't hold heat and it was damp in the summer causing a mold problem that got worse every year. I didn't want to tear all the walls out to insulate and I came across this product. I cut the bottom three feet out and slid this insulation up between the studs. Then it created a smooth surface to slide fiberglass insulation up as well. Now it stays warm long after the fire goes out. I will see in the summer if it is a good moisture barrier too. I then stapled it in the chicken house because chickens eat Styrofoam board and mice get in fiberglass. Now I can keep it 50 degrees when its 20 degrees outside February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product, used it in the past, very easy to install It took just a short time to figure out the "staple tab", expecting it to be similar to the one found on fiberglass insulation. The manufacturer simply pops the bubbles along the edge which allows for easy bending and stapling. The video I watched on line gave a great tip on the install procedure and it really helped speed up the process since I was on my back in a crawl space. It did the job for insulating my radiant floor install and my new kitchen floor is very comfortable. The photo shows some of the install with the first layer half way up the space and in the background you can see the layer at the bottom also, that the manufacturer claims to give me an R21. Love this stuff! January 13, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Radiant Barrier Only, NOT Garage Door Insulation Please note that I used this as a radiant barrier for my garage doors, BUT only in conjunction with garage insulation rigid foam boards! This has virtually no insulation value whatsoever (r1 to be precise). December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install and reasonably priced compared to other sources. We're using Reflectix to seal and augment the insulation of our cabin on the river - the walls as well as the floor and cathedral ceiling. It's so easy to install that it's hard to stay ahead of our help. The immediate comfort is remarkable and we haven't even added the fiberglass yet. April 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Interesting in concept. In theory, this stuff may be a great add to my floor insulation in my crawl space. Very easy to work with. I don't have a great deal of DIY experience with craw space, so I'm concerned with the moisture barrier aspect of using this product. It will keep exterior summer moisture out of the insulation zone, but will it trap interior moisture in the insulation zone during the winter? Worth trying to get warmer floors during the winter. April 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I'm really satisfied with this product I'm really satisfied with this product! That's all I can say December 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to handle, and cheap..Also has built in vapor barrier... Light, compact, easy to install, and has vapor barrier. December 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by made my own tabs very easy to use insulation. i was using it with radiant heat, insulating the bays in a crawl space. i used gorilla tape to make tabs on the sides about 3 feet apart. this allowed me to easily position the insulation and i also stapled through the tape tab. before i made the tabs the insulation could be hard to position because it was such a tight fit that you couldn't grasp the edge to position it. with about a 4 inch piece of tape, attach to both sides of insulation leaving about an inch extending beyond edge, that's the tab.
