We chose to use denim insulation for our garage renovation. We did store pick up because we have a box truck. Each of the 12 bags contains 5 batts of denim insulation. Things to keep in mind: denim insulation needs time to fluff before placing in the stud cavities. We opened 3 bags and placed them the next day. Just like standard insulation, you need a box cutter, but we found you could measure, then make a shallow cut in the batt, and rip with your hands. You MUST wear safety goggles AND a mask because the dust that follows ripping and cutting is insane! Also, unlike standard insulation, the batts can be thicker. This is not a huge issue, but know that when you put up drywall that you may have to work a little harder to hold the board in place while your partner screws it secure.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MD Great insulation for a do it yourselfer.
Great product! Although you don't itch like fiberglass insulation, the product is very dusty and it would be a good idea to wear closed in safety glasses and a dust mask. Other than the fibers in the air...very easy to work with.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carm Great purchase
Installed this in our cabin this past weekend. What a relief to not have to wear gloves or a mask. Though, I would recommend at least a mask if you are tearing the insulation at all. It's quite dusty if you tear it up. The perforations are such a great idea and came in handy (dust alert). Once colder weather is upon us we will know how well it performs for heat loss but I'm expecting it to work very well. Our cabin is already much quieter and more cozy. And the fact that it is recycled material and non toxic was our main reason for getting it. It was recommended by many friends.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sherieg Great Product - But Extremely dusty!
Used this to insulate the walls of our oversized 3 car, (2x6 construction) garage. The dust factor is an understatement though. It will cover your glasses, lashes, skin, etc. (definitely wear a mask! - in one picture all of me looked slightly "blue") However, I have lots of allergies and sensitivities and I had no issues with it.
We used a band saw to cut it (brainless, fast, butter like cuts) including partial cuts through the depth when we needed to split the front and back over electrical wires. It does not tear or "split" (on the perforations) very easily at all. We found it better to cut slightly wider and run the lengths slightly longer especially since there was a slight sag factor due to the weight (this being accentuated if the sides were not "tight" to help hold it "tall." Keep this in mind as there were several runs that were perfect when initially placed and a couple of days later they had a bit of a "gap" at the top from settling. The performance is great in both temperature and sound proofing though we did top it off with 5/8" drywall. (Colorado temps sitting near 0 outside and even unheated the garage never really fell below 47 degrees) (note: tried cutting this stuff with very sharp razor type and saw type blades and that was a ROYAL pain. - the band saw was a life saver!)

This product is awesome! So easy to install!
I wish they carried it the local stores so it wasn't an online only product! We have put this in our garage as we build a lot of noisy projects later into the the nights and now you can hardly hear us outside of the new addition to the garage I can't wait till summer when we tear down the old garage and rebuild it I will definitely be buying this again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OklahomaInstaller Good product but definitely wear dust mask
I've just installed so I don't know how well it will perform over time. Primary purpose was sound deadening around a media room. It was relatively easy to install and you can certainly tear it easily with your hands. The friction fit works okay but you will probably want to staple it at the top to prevent sagging. One major caveat is that it generates a tremendous amount of fiber dust. Make sure you wear a dust mask or your respiratory system will be full of blue fibers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by farmgirl I will never touch fiberglass again.
I am a 56 year old woman and did the installation of this in my basement. That meant over the head work. It was light and easy to deal with. Some of the pieces are pre perforated for easy tearing. In fact it could be torn without the perforation. Love this stuff. Beware when picking up, you will need a large vehicle/truck. 12 huge "bales" of insulation.
