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.
I have 24" on center gurts and all you have to do is to do the math.
Hello PM, Compressing the R-20 into a 2x4 cavity is going to reduce the R-value of the insulation to a R-14. Below is a link to our Compressed R-value bulletin. https://dcpd6wotaa0mb.cloudfront.net/mdms/dms/Residential%20Insulation/10017857/10017857-Building-Insul-Compressed-R-Value-Chart-Tech-Bulletin.pdf?v=1428909128000 Owens Corning does manufacture a R-15 that will fit within a 2x4 with not compression. Thank you for your inquiry!

Hello Kevin, Owens Corning EcoTouch Insulation is effective for acoustical control. However, insulation itself does not have a sound proofing rating. The overall acoustical control would be based on all components in the assembly. If you call 1-800-Get-Pink (438-7465) and provide your entire assembly we can provide a STC rating for your assembly. Thank you for your inquiry!

The question is what do you wish to accomplish. R-19 to me is in the middle, also what are the suds in the attic, 2 X 6, 2 X 8 I have found the R-19 sufficient for over garage, but I would suggest something thicker otherwise
