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.
Hello me, Owens Corning R-19 16"x96" Foil faced Insulation contains 8 pieces per package. Thank you for your inquiry!
Hello sparkdog, installing R-19 into a 2x6 wood stud cavity will cause compression of the product. Compressing the R-19 into a 5.5" cavity will reduce its R-value to R-18. Thank you for your inquiry!
Hello Kevinb, Owens Corning does not make any claims to our foil faced products acting as a radiant barrier. You will also want to check with your local building codes to verify the placement of the vapor retarder. Thank you for your inquiry!

Whil ethe MFG wants to say yes and move product, They failed to mention that this is for 2x6" framing. While it can be used for wood, you better check your framing, as most used is 2x4. Squishing insulation defeats the purpose of its use. Needs to have as much fluff as possible as AIR is the #1 importance.
