Face insulation uses kraft paper vapor barrier to control moisture transmission between walls and floors. Check your local building code for requirements.
Unfaced insulation does not have a vapor barrier; used over existing insulation in the attic or where moisture control is not needed.
The R-value for insulation measures how well insulation materials can resist heat - the higher the R-value, the greater the insulation performance.
For proven thermal performance, Owens Corning attic insulation is a decision everyone can be comfortable with.
Our insulation solutions include sound control for more peace and privacy as well as thermal comfort.
From the basement to the attic, effective underfloor insulation provides added acoustic and thermal comfort.
Owens Corning is a global leader in engineered materials for roofing, insulation and composites.
Our innovative solutions are safe, sustainable, durable, efficient and affordable to address thermal, air, fire and moisture performance.
Not really a problem using it in a 2x4 wall but you would be much better off buying the R-19 insulation which is made for 2x6 walls. If the R-13 is not securely stapled to the studs it might collapse in the oversized space.
Hello Rjrt8, Owens Corning does not have recommendations on installing our EcoTouch Products on garage doors. Please note that the kraft facing is combustible and must be covered by a 15 minute thermal barrier such as 1/2" drywall. Depending on your garage door size and type a product such as our garage door kit may be a product that will work. Please see link below for more information. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Owens-Corning-Garage-Door-Fiberglass-Insulation-Kit-22-in-x-54-in-8-Panels-GD01/202257272?MERCH=REC-_-searchViewed-_-NA-_-202257272-_-N Thank you for your inquiry!
Hello Patty, The facing on insulation acts as a vapor retarder which helps prevent moisture entering the assembly. The placement and need for a vapor retarder is based on your local building codes. Thank you for your inquiry!
Fiberglass insulation loses it's insulating capabilities when you compress it (it's all of those little air pockets that prevent heat/cold transfer). Although you can compress it to 1.5", it will no longer have an R value of 13.

Hello Robby, Owens Corning does manufacture a R-13 Kraft Faced Insulation Batt 15"x93". It is product code M90. We suggest checking your local Home Depot for product availability. Thank you for your inquiry!
Hello rx7, to determine the R-value needed you would want to check with your local building codes. If you decide to go with the mentioned product each roll covers 40 square feet. Thank you for your inquiry!
Just a little, but if you're studs are 14.5" - 15" apart you'll be fine.
Would be a tight fit with zero air flow above it. Really should have some air flow! Also building code is R-38 in most areas with air flow above it. Unless this this a playhouse or shed probably not a good idea
Hello AC, an air barrier/weather resistant barrier would be located on the exterior side. The facing on the insulation is a vapor retarder of which the drywall would be installed against. Thank you for your inquiry!
