Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handyman 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

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JNJG 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!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HDguy1958 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).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Monty 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kerby54 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by streeter 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.
