Questions & Answers

I’m putting this in a cabin in northern Maine. The rafters are 16” on center and I used true 2” x10” rough cut lumber

By using this product seemingly made specifically for cathedral ceilings, and the fact that it’s only 8 1/2” thick (still R-30?) do i need to run the proper vent from soffit to ridge? Also, any reason why there is a specific “cathedral ceiling” designation to the insulation? How will the r value differ with this product be regular R30?
Asked by: LilFella
Hi LilFella, if using true 2x10s, you will have over an inch of air flow under the roof deck without the need to run any baffles under the entire deck. The product is designed with a slight difference in density which allows for the inch of airflow when installed in nominal 2x10 cavities, while still delivering a true R-30 rating. Thank you for your inquiry!

I need to replace the insulation in my catedral ceiling. The space between joists is 14 3/4” and only 7 “ deep. The recommended R value for the area is a min of 39. Using R30C batts will require compressing in two directions: from 15 1/2” to 14 3/4 and from 8 1/2 to 7”. The alternative option is to use R21, 5 1/2” thick or R19, 6 1/4”. What do you suggest I do. Also should I use the attic vent (recommended by the contractor; not recommended by an employee at HD)? Thanks
Asked by: Miguel
Hi Miguel, compressing the insulation will lead to a loss of R-Value of the product. Without furring down to create a deeper cavity, we recommend using a batt such as the R-21 or R-19 that will allow for some airflow under the roof deck if it is properly vented. We also recommend maintaining proper ventilation under the roof deck. Thank you for your inquiry!

Does 8 1/4" thickness R-30 come in rolls, with a backing?

I assume it was an automated invitation, because there isn't much to review. It's definitely pink, definitely fluffy, and definitely makes me itch. I ordered 25, and they came 5 bundles of 5 each, which was very convenient. Also, the price can't be beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comment to Dissapointed buyer First of all you don't press and squeeze in insulation. This product is specially made for a cathedral ceiling which requires the installation of baffles applied to the roof sheathing side to insure the one inch movement of air on the unfaced side of the insulation. Owens Corning designed this R-30 insulation to fit a smaller roof rafter size as used in a cathedral ( 8 .25 inches). So if you are using this in a floor installation, there surely could be some variation. Just don't force or compress this insulation because you will reduce the R-value. Thank you for this reduced thickness product with the great R-30 insulation value. I plan on using it for my unconditioned crawl space ceiling supporting the unfaced side with the proper wires.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not expand to specified 8.25" thickness I'm waiting on Owens Corning claims to review my issue. I used this product in 2x8 joists, not a ceiling application. Pressed the insulation with vapor barrier face down against sheet rock and insulation remains several inches below top of 2x8. Project is on hold...a bit frustrated because of install time but waiting for their response.
