Answer: 
Dear Chris: Yes, but with some caveats. First, Reflectix provides almost no insulation value by itself. The R value claimed on the package depend on a sealed 'air gap' that you must create / build when you install it. Second, Reflectix is much less effective in winter when there is little radiant heat for the shiny surface to reflect. With a cathedral ceiling, for example, Reflectix claims R7 in summer Read More
Dear Chris: Yes, but with some caveats. First, Reflectix provides almost no insulation value by itself. The R value claimed on the package depend on a sealed 'air gap' that you must create / build when you install it. Second, Reflectix is much less effective in winter when there is little radiant heat for the shiny surface to reflect. With a cathedral ceiling, for example, Reflectix claims R7 in summer but only R1 in winter in the northern US. Look for the "FTC Fact Sheet" on the Reflectix Inc website for all of the details.
Some people try foam board, but this is prohibited on garage doors because it is very flammable and must be covered by a thermal barrier, e.g. 1/2" drywall.
The best solution I have found is Roxul Rockboard, which provides R4.1 per inch and is fireproof. It is available with foil or white poly facing. You can order it from your Home Depot Pro Desk; ask for Roxul Rockboard 40, with the facing color / type you prefer. You can cut it easily with a knife, and mount it on your garage door panels with "truss head" wood screws (e.g. Phillips II Plus Model # 36358.0 Internet # 203809492) or construction adhesive.
I hope this is helpful.

We recommend using the product that is double bubble and reflective on both sides for the garage door application. Not the single bubble - reflective on one side.

Answer: 
I don't see why not, it is very thin and just needs to be attached somehow (maybe with glue or tape?) Obviously the shiny side goes towards the surface of the garage door. I used this product to line a metal building as a first layer, then added traditional insulation next, then drywall. Very pleased with the product, the interior stays an even temperature.

Answer: 
Yes, but if you read the Reflectix installation guide and specifications carefully, you will find that standard insulation performs better in every case. Here is an example from the Reflectix FTC Fact Sheet

"Exterior Wall 1 One air space 0.75” between the product and the interior wall sheathing R-3.9 (total assembly (2”x 4” Stud) with R-13 batt = R-14)"

Yes, but if you read the Reflectix installation guide and specifications carefully, you will find that standard insulation performs better in every case. Here is an example from the Reflectix FTC Fact Sheet

"Exterior Wall 1 One air space 0.75” between the product and the interior wall sheathing R-3.9 (total assembly (2”x 4” Stud) with R-13 batt = R-14)"

Note that adding the layer of Reflectix with an air space added only 1 R. The total R value of the wall went from R13 to R14.

In addition, the performance of reflective / radiant barriers gradually degrades over time as dust settles on the shiny surface, and they do not work in the winter because cold cannot be 'reflected'.

So.. here are two tips to significantly improve wall insulation in your home:

(1) If the walls are open: Fill the stud bays with Roxul rock wool batts, which are much denser than fiberglass and provide R4 per inch. See: Roxul Model RXCB351525, Home Depot Internet #202090820 Store SKU #974419 If your walls are built with 2x6s, see: Roxul Model RXCB551525, Home Depot Internet #205972546. Then, if option #2 is not possible, cover the studs with 1" polyiso foam board. This will add R6 insulation, break the 'thermal bridges' created by all of the studs, and help to air-seal the wall. See: Super TUFF-R Model 268426, Home Depot Internet #100322374 Store SKU #804395 Store SO SKU #621947. Carefully seal all of the joints and edges to block air leaks. Use DAP 230 sealant. See: DAP Model 18275, Home Depot Internet #100035980 Store SKU #284425 Store SO SKU #1000058280 Then install 1/2" drywall. (Foam board MUST be covered by 1/2" drywall due to the flammability factor.)

(2) If you are installing new siding: This is a perfect opportunity to upgrade your insulation. First install housewrap over your sheathing, carefully tape every seam and seal the top edge and every penetration, e.g. for electrical outlets, exhaust vents and pipes. Read the installation guide on the Home Depot site. See: TYVEK Housewrap Model D13499991, Home Depot Internet #100422450 Store SKU #641398, and TYVEK Tape Model D13841470, Home Depot Internet #100422453 Store SKU #176886. Seal the top edge under your soffit fascia with DAP 230.

Then 'wrap' the entire house with 1 7/8" polyisocyanate foam board. This will add R12 insulation, break all of the 'thermal bridges' created by the studs and sheathing, and help to air-seal the walls. Carefully flash the top edge under the soffit, to prevent any water from reaching the top edge of the foam board -- and seal every joint and edge with DAP 230.

Install 1x4" PT strapping over the foam board, to mount the new siding. Use long screws; we prefer Deckmate which resist rust and are rated for PT lumber. See: Deckmate Model 734968, Home Depot Internet #202308663 Store SKU #734968

You will need to build-out trim around windows and doors to match the depth of the new foam board. Use cellular PVC instead of wood -- it never rots, cracks or needs paint. For example see: Veranda Model H190LWS6, Home Depot Internet #100265384 Store SKU #252314. Use Cortex screws to install it. See: Veranda Model FMCTXT-VA50SMHD, Home Depot Internet #203705494 Store SKU #822865 Store SO SKU #336802.

We recently completed a 'deep remodel' project in Massachusetts that included all of these steps. A couple of photos are attached.

I hope all of this detail is helpful.

Answer: 
We do not recommend using the product that is reflective one side and white on the order for applications in your home. The product that is double bubble and reflective on both sides is the product we recommend. You can check our website for the different application you can use the product for in your home and the R-value it has in each.

Dear WMjp: You asked this question in January, so I assume you want to insulate these buckets from the cold. As the Reflectix rep noted, you can wrap the buckets with Reflectix. Unfortunately, however, it will provide very little insulation value. Reflective insulation cannot protect against the cold, because cold cannot be "reflected".

Unfortunately, however, it will provide very little insulation value. Reflective insulation cannot protect against the cold, because cold cannot be "reflected".
Reflectix and other reflective products also require you to build / create a sealed air pocket on one side. This provides almost all of the claimed insulation value; the bubble wrap itself delivers only R1.
So... there are no effective options to 'wrap' and insulate the outside of your buckets.
The best option would be to line the inside of the buckets with an inch or so of Great Stuff spray foam. This would provide R4 per inch. See: GREAT STUFF Model # 162848 Home Depot Internet # 100003351 Store SKU # 507765.
I hope this is helpful.

Answer: 
Dear Lizberr61: Unfortunately, mice can chew right through Reflectix. Reflectix also offers no insulation value itself, and performs poorly in winter when there is no 'radiant heat' to reflect.
The best option under the floor of your modular home would be foil-faced foam board which provides R 6.5 per inch. Look for: Super TUFF-R Model # TUFF-R Model # 268441 Internet # 100322376 Store SKU # 163832, Read More

The best installation option would be to (a) remove the existing rolls of fiberglass insulation and (b) glue or nail / screw pieces to the underside of your subfloor, between the joists, then add another layer across the bottom of the joists to eliminate exposed wood -- which is a good conductor of heat / cold.
To save money, the other option is to (a) remove the existing rolls of fiberglass insulation, and (b) install sheets of foam board across the bottom of the joists, which will create sealed air pockets between the joists, and cover the exposed wood.
Be sure to carefully seal all of the joints and edges to block air leaks; HVAC foil tape works well. Look for: Nashua Tape Model # 1207792 Internet # 100030120 Store SKU # 915245 (DO NOT use common silver cloth "duct tape") Great Stuff spray foam is also a good solution for larger gaps and holes.
Note: foam is flammable and should not be installed near anything that may get hot, e.g. a furnace or exhaust duct.

Answer: 
Reflectix can be used at the bottom of the floor joist in conjuction with the other insulation as long as the other insulation is totally dry. Reflectix forms a vapor barrier so it will keep moisture out but if the other insulation is not completely dry then the moisture will be held in the joist cavity.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reflectix Product I've alright recommended this product to my neighbors, here at Trails West - A senior Community. Rono October 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for purpose This reflective insulation is the perfect material for the purpose of lining a metal outbuilding I am converting into a woodworking shop. It is the first layer of a multilayer insulation solution. I was able to easily cut and fit this between the studs and simply staple it in place. It will be followed with a layer of paper faced fiberglass insulation and enclosed with drywall. This first layer will turn back the heat radiated by the metal when the sun hits it. After installation, I noticed a significant difference in the temperature from touching the metal surface to touching the inside of this insulation. January 31, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by USED AS A CEILING I used this as a ceiling in our daughter's basement. There were too many sprinkler heads, pipes and ductwork to use a dropped type ceiling. I had a friend helping me and neither of us had worked with anything like this material before.We stapled it to the bottom of the floor joist about every 6 inches keeping it tight as we went. It looks nice. The only problems were that 2 of the rolls had splices in them and some of the rolls had some of the "bubbles" that were flat. But this material was listed as insulation so if I'd be rating it as such, I'd give it a 5. February 25, 2014
