Hello Dan, The kraft facing on our EcoTouch Insulation product is not waterproof. It is a vapor retarder that will help slow the migration of water vapor within an assembly. Thank you for your inquiry!

Answers

It is super easy to cut with a boxing knife. I used this product and cut it down for a couple of bays. Remember, the loft is what provides the heat retention so don't pack it too tight. That being said, it is really good insulation. I would give it a try. As I said, If you feel like you are compressing it too much, just cut a little off.

I noticed that the width of this insulation is 16 in. (as opposed to the R-30 roll of insulation ...

The width of the insulation material itself is less than 1inch. That being said, makes it real nice for friction fit I like the 16 bats better than the 15 inch.

Don't buy the bulk pack!
I recently purchased 3, 8 pack pallets of R-30 insulation through the Home Depot website. It took a couple of weeks to show up but that was alright. After installing the 24 bags worth of insulation I realized I needed just a couple more bags to complete the project, so I checked pricing on the individual bags. I was surprised to see the individual bag price was only slightly more than I paid per bag when I bought the 8 pack pallets. HOWEVER, the individual bag pricing offers about a 20% discount if you purchase 15 bags or more... 8 pack Pallet Price $699 = $87.38 per bag Single Bag Price $93.30 15 + Bag Price $74.64 I don't have a problem with the product, but Home Depot is refusing to honor the bulk pricing on my bulk order, so I'm not satisfied with the purchase at all.. I hope my $400+ mistake helps someone save a little money on their next big purchase. Personally, I'll be shopping elsewhere for my next big purchase.

This eco insulation(devil's cotton candy) is true to nickname it smells like the "devil" is burning his cookies! This insulation stinks to high heaven of burning wire/cookies... had to air it out for days before installing and it still smells!

Response from OwensCorningDec 21, 2018
Hello Darren, thank you for reaching out. In recent years there has been increased focus on indoor air quality by the building materials industry. Owens Corning continuously improves its products and processes with a strong focus on improving the product properties. The insulation binder is now made with a bio-based ingredient as our commitment to make our products more sustainable. The use of natural ingredients can sometimes cause different scents when installing the product. This scent is very similar to the smell of baked goods. This scent is normal for bio-based materials and will dissipate over a short period of time. There is no health hazard associated with the scent of bio-based binder. Extensive emission testing has occurred on products made with the new formulation, primarily through the GreenGuard Environmental Institute. These products meet the strictest indoor air quality standards such as GREENGUARD GOLD and Formaldehyde Free. If you have any further concerns, please contact us at 1-800-GET-PINK.

We had to install a second ceiling in this older church that we are converting to a house. We aren't totally done but the insulation helps to keep it a nice temperature inside no matter what the temperature outside is.

Good stuff, cross layered on top of existing attic insulation for added thermal protection. Fairly easy inexpensive DIY upgrade. Bats required less cutting than rolls & were easy to work with. My wife did the attic install as she was a better fit for the tight space. It took about 4 hours total cleanup included to install approx. 420 sq ft & our bedroom is much warmer now.

Instant results! Easy and quick to install. Noticed results same day as the desert heat is now reduced in our laundry room that had no insulation above it. Bags are awkward to get up in a small attic entrance so have a helper ready.
