Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Terry Update and protect your crawlspace HVAC board box ductwork
I needed to "weatherproof" the crawlspace duct board from the summer moisture that attacks the exterior of the duct board over time. To accomplish this I disconnected the flex ducts from the unit, cleaned the entire surface area on the board boxes then sealed and taped any leaks in the existing 20 foot long unit. Next I tightly wrapped the board box with the product, reinstalled the flex ducts and taped the seams. The unit now has a brand new moisture proof surface area that is completely sealed and looks awesome. This also added an additional R3 insulation factor to the unit. Nice product considering the cost vs end result.

The reflective insulation was excellent to work with, had no fiberglass, went on easy and worked fine. We used the insulation in knee wall areas. We took readings on the wall before and after with an electronic infrared thermometer to prove it made a difference. It made a definite difference in that room which is 45 feet long by 14 feet wide. We were pleased with the results.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aretiredcat We love this product!
We use this stuff everywhere we can when building/remodeling our old mobile home. It's easy to work with and helps add insulation. This time we put a new roof on our old RV and placed this product underneath the new roof skin. Every little bit helps with these older "beer cans in the Florida sun"! About 10 years ago we rebuild an old VW Bug and used this product to line the floor and roof before new floor carpet and headliner. Even when parked for hours our bug stayed the coolest car in the parking lot. Next project is using this material to make a sun shield/privacy shield for our VW camping van. Why don't we own stock in this company?

I wish everyone could know the hidden value of this product. I learned about the solar ovens being used by the women of Somalia refugee camps, made with cardboard and reflective tin foil glued to the surface and shaped to reflect the sun onto a dark pot. This has not only freed up hours a day hunting for fire wood but has also kept them from great harm. With a 3'X4' piece of Reflectix I have duplicated their pattern and have cooked several meals with no fuel and little effort. It folds up and can be carried camping or kept for
emergencies. At a little over $5.00 each, every one should have one of these in an emergency preparedness kit!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JofTrades Tarp-Reflective Insulation
I used contact cement, original to glue the insulation to the tarp leaving 4 inches of tarp on each edge and overlapped each 4 foot insulation to each other. I then folded and cement edges of tarp and put new gourmets in. I made this tarp to put on my RV that has a rubber roof and it is solid and tied down good. I then put 3 crossover ropes on top to take out any wind whip. I wish the tarp was a little heavier but with it folded over and cemented we will see after a couple years.

Bought at the beginning of the week after reading many reviews. Used for a attached garage on the main door. For around 70 dollars I did the whole door. 16' wide x 7' tall. Took me a total of 1 hour and used scissors to cut which made it very easy. There wasn't a need to use 2 sided tape because the door sections have overlap in the bracing. Just cut and fit. Current temp is 18 degrees and garage is 50 degrees with no heat on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by East80Super Reflective Insulation really works
I had just installed Reflective Insulation throughout my roof attic, unfortunately I could not afford the other expensive ones so I was doubtful for its claim in performance by Reflective Insulation. Suddenly we got hit with a Heat Wave in early summer this was the test, I could not believe that I suffered so many hot summers because of the high cost of insulation and all it took was an easy installation of Reflective Insulation to keep my house cooler and I am sure warmer this coming winter.
I know my ultility bills will be much lower this year.
Thank You HomeDepot

I cannot give enough praise to this product. It has lowered our attic temp by at least 30 degrees or more. Air conditioner does not work as hard to keep up. Even our HVAC tech said that it went from one of the hottest to one of the coolest attics. I have two gable vent fans that are set to kick on at 100 degrees.....they have yet to come on this summer (we have had a few days in the upper 90's). I am reluctant to write such a good review.....afraid someone will jack the price up on it. Two notes of interest. A 4 X 100 ft roll is available online....that is the way to go. Much cheaper. Don't buy the Reflectix brand foil tape to tape the seams. The HVAC section at HD has much larger rolls for a little more. Also...it will be much easier to install with 2 workers. It will look like a space capsule when you are done.
